What We Do
At Plan Away we understand that as owners of your Financial Planning practice you ideally want to work on your business not in your business. Time is your biggest asset and the one thing that we could all do with a lot more of…
When running a Financial Planning practice, your biggest cost is often your staff, most of all Paraplanners. By outsourcing your paraplanning service you can reduce your staff costs and pay for the service only when you need it, thereby improving your business efficiency and your profit margins.
Why Outsource To Plan Away?
We have a team of paraplanners that are ALWAYS available. You don’t have to worry about us going on holiday or being sick. There is always an experienced paraplanner to complete your SOA.
All of our paraplanners are located in Australia. Your client information will NEVER be sent outside of the Australian legal system. All of our paraplanners have strict education and experience requirements.
All of our SOAs are completed by an experienced paraplanner and are vetted by a senior paraplanner before being efficiently returned to you.
About Our Team
Since Plan Away commenced in December 2009 the business has grown to have 9 staff and now services over 20 businesses across over 13 different licencees throughout the country.
This growth has come from referrals from our existing happy clients and BDM’s and PDM’s we deal with on a regular basis. We pride ourselves on this fact and feel confident that we are providing a timely, professional service that our clients can rely on and trust.
