We believe in making Estate Planning & Administration simple

simplyEstate is a social enterprise with a vision to be the number one information and resource platform for estate planning and deceased estate administration in Australia. Our mission is to be at the forefront of decluttering and simplifying the estate planning and administration processes to give Executors, Administrators, Beneficiaries and Next of Kin some of this important time back.

 

simplyEstate aims to educate and inform about the estate administration and demystify some of the fears and complexities. We want Australian families to be confident about understanding the process, engaging specialists and dealing with all types of organisations.

 

A loss of a loved one can be one of the most challenging times and we want to provide our fellow Australians with guidance to complete the administration in the simplest and most cost and time effective way.

We do acknowledge that some aspects of the administration of a deceased estate can be a difficult and complex. Our carefully selected Specialist Partners across Australia will happily assist our customers when they need help to empower them to make informed decisions along the way.

 

Being a social enterprise, we want all Australians to benefit from our company’s resources. simplyEstate commits to re-investing at least 80% of its profits back into the business to continuously improve our service offerings and technology. Our ambition is to support 10,000 Australian families by 2025.

 

Our customers will notice that we live by our core values of being authentic, honest and compassionate when dealing with us. Our business is to help you, and we do it with pride.
