A former commercial banker has launched his own bookkeeping franchise business from his home in Claverham after investing in the award-winning franchise, Rosemary Bookkeeping.

Tony Comport, left his 35-year career in business and corporate banking for the more personal world of SME bookkeeping. Tony’s business, Rosemary Bookkeeping will operate across North Somerset providing valuable bookkeeping services for SMEs and Accountancy Practises throughout the area.

No stranger to the numbers game, Tony said: “I’m not afraid of the hard work, in fact I’m quite looking forward to networking and making new contacts as I start to grow and develop the business. Rosemary Bookkeeping provides a totally transparent costing system to the end user and I value honesty and integrity in business, so it feels like the perfect fit.

“I’m delighted to be joining the Rosemary Bookkeeping franchise network and excited about building this business not only for me but hopefully for my children’s futures.”

Entrepreneurship runs in the Comport family, with both Tony’s daughter having owned numerous local businesses.

Hannah Banfield, brand leader for Rosemary Bookkeeping added: “I’m delighted Tony chose to join the Rosemary franchise network and we are excited about his future with the business. He has a head for numbers and a passion to deliver excellent services, what could be better?”
