What Our Users Say


“This online guide and the affordable tools were invaluable.  They really helped me understand what needed to be done. They gave me the confidence to act as Joint Executor. The Beneficiaries were given a clear overview of my late mother’s estate value. I found using the assets and liabilities spreadsheet easy and intuitive.”


Chris Quinn



“I downloaded all Checklists & Tools, which proved very useful. It allowed me to keep all expenses of my late mother’s estate organised. It was easy to pay and download and wish I had known about simplyEstate sooner.”

Brian Crowley


“Losing a loved one is emotionally very difficult. Being faced shortly after with another difficult task as Executor can be overwhelming, especially if the estate is complex.  Having the simplyEstate guidelines at hand made the task much easier to navigate with confidence and accuracy.”
