Recently bought some begonia plants at a garden centre, if I cut these back at the end of the summer and store will they grow again next year?

This depends on the kind of begonia. Some have no tuber and cannot be stored. It the plants have a tuber, you can lift them at the first night of frost damage and place them in trays.

The stems will fall off in a few days and you can store the tubers in a frost free place with some dry peat around them. Pot them up in March in a warm place for planting out at the end of May.
