The Business

Property Testing Services Ltd (PTS) is the UK's only dedicated Franchise delivering Commercial and Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Reports, also known as EICRs. Mr. David John Pallas founded the company. PTS have revolutionised the industry by offering clients quality and cost-cutting services in all aspects of services which will be supplied by local Franchisee’s. Property Testing Services Ltd has a solid reputation in the industry and a proven business model.
Furthermore, the company is expanding the brand across the United Kingdom by building a national network of large, exclusive, protected franchise territories in prime locations. With the franchisees, PTS aims to become the leading supplier of EICRs and general electrical repairs, taking over as many commercial and residential sites in the UK as possible in the upcoming years. Currently, PTS has ten registered franchises in different locations to offer to potential franchisees.
The franchisees are promised potentially immense revenue because the Electrical Testing Service industry's opportunity has become one of the most thriving businesses in the UK since the change to the legislation which governs the testing of rented properties.

About one in five UK households – 4.5 million families – live in private rented accommodation, with a similar amount in social housing, according to the most recent figures.13 Apr 2020.

These are massive numbers and by April 2021 all these households will have to have an active and up to date EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) Test Certificate.

These changes basically mean every Landlord in the UK has responsibility to make sure their properties are electrically safe for tenants to live in those properties.

The changes relate to all rented properties and are so massive and involve such great numbers, that the government have had to make two development dates, thus the first change is for landlords who are offering new tenancy agreement, this came into force as of July 2020.

The next upgrade comes into force in July 2021 when all landlords have to have every property tested, this basically means every rented property in the UK will have to have an EICR test carried out, and any landlords who do not adhere to this legislation will be facing a £30.000 fine.

Property Testing Services Ltd is a premium brand that is redefining what success for EICRs means. Our corporate team is dedicated to helping our franchisees become successful, providing the framework, industry knowledge, support, and tools to thrive while also empowering owners to step into CEO roles within their own business.

Your Role

Once you become a franchisee and part of a franchise organisation, what are your roles and responsibilities?
Leadership and Partnership
Overall benefits
The first function you have in your new endeavour is as an investor into your business. You will need to invest financially with an initial franchising fee, but also prepare to pay any additional costs necessary to getting the business up and running such as equipment costs. Also, you will need to pay ongoing royalty fees, and likely an advertising fund fee (sometimes called a brand fund fee).
Secondly, you will need to be sure that you can invest an adequate amount of time in the business. Although the system is basically set up in franchising, you will still need to spend extra time learning how the system works. The franchisor usually offers training and continuous support, hence the ongoing royalty payments. Like anything else, once you know the ins and outs of the system, the time investment decreases somewhat.

One of the most important skills you need to possess as a franchisee is the ability to be proactive and take the initiative. You should be able to assume a leadership role easily and be willing and able to learn new skills.

Of course, you also need to be able and willing to follow system standards. You are basically assuming a partnership role with the franchisor, and by signing the franchise agreement, you agree to fulfil four major responsibilities for the success of the overall franchise system:

  • To protect the franchised brand by operating the franchise in strict compliance with system operating standards.
  • To build a strong and loyal customer base by offering only approved products and services and by providing superior customer service.
  • To ensure that all employees are professionally trained, and the franchise is properly staffed at all times.
  • To advertise and promote the franchise and its approved products and services according to the guidelines provided by the franchisor.

Therefore, you should be able to work together, share ideas, and resolve issues together. You may notice something that the franchisor was not aware of since you are much closer to the business. The franchisor would probably appreciate your bringing concerns or discrepancies to the table, especially if you offer possible solutions.

For example, you may come up with a great new idea you would like to implement at your franchised location. The franchisor should have a protocol in place whereby an agreement may be reached to pilot-test your idea in your location before the franchisor decides whether to roll it out system-wide.

With all the responsibilities that the franchisee holds, communication and organizational skills are key skills to possess as a franchisee.

You need to be certain that you understand how the entire system works and not be afraid to ask the franchisor questions. It is especially important to communicate with the franchisor anything that you notice that does not seem right to you.
You should also expect to report to the franchisor your sales and expenses regularly, and provide documentation showing that you are meeting the franchisor’s advertising requirements.

Also, you will need to be able to communicate effectively with your customers, employees, vendors, and other business contacts.
Furthermore, it can be quite beneficial to team up with other franchisees on a regular basis. It can help you run your business more smoothly if you share ideas and solutions to problems experienced by others in the same capacity.
Prepare to wear many hats in your role as a franchisee. In operating the business, you will most likely have to manage all, of the business's daily operations, including ordering supplies, meeting with customers and vendors, preparing payroll, resolving discrepancies, etc. These are just a few of your "sub-roles" depending on the type of business you are running. It is essential to be able to organize your responsibilities so that everything gets done accurately and in a timely manner.

In conclusion, if you understand your role as a franchisee and make every effort to carry it out thoroughly, you should be able to manage a successful franchise.

There are so many benefits to your EICR testing business, and we will gladly talk you through everything when we meet. In the meantime, here are a few positives about joining us.

  • A HUGE marketplace opportunity. Where we, have the Government telling Landlords they must abide by this legislation and if they do not, they open themselves up to a £30.000 fine.
  • No stock required. And we will supply all the testing equipment you need as part of your franchise package.
  • Easy customer retention and loyalty through unparalleled service, and after 5 Years the landlords must renew the test certificate, and any new property coming onto the market also needs a test certificate.
  • When properties fail the EICR Test, then you become the favoured contractor for almost all, of the remedial work that will be required to get the property through to a passed situation.

A regular, busy day could see 4 jobs completed, or you could do a couple of tests and some remedial work, which will increase your turn over substantially , and you will also attract through our contacts other electrical work such as re-wires, and general electrical repairs if you are so inclined. These numbers are achievable while remaining competitive and offering service levels beyond the capability of others. A true win-win!
