From first time franchisees to existing business professionals that want to increase the services they offer their clients.
What’s even better is that this is a franchise with low investment options. Depending on your personal and operational ambitions, you can choose to invest in one of five business packages.
Business package options
To meet the needs of all prospective Brokerplan Partners, there is a business package to suit everyone. Here are some more details about each of the packages available
The Business Owner option is intended for franchisees who want to build a full-time career as a business finance specialist. Rather than starting an independent business from scratch, this package will allow you to quickly establish your own independent commercial finance practice under your brand name.
The main benefit of the Business Owner package is that you’re able to build your own business, and confidence, as a commercial finance specialist while enjoying the business and compliance support of Brokerplan. This comprehensive package will provide you with everything you need to launch your business straight after you’ve completed your initial training and continues to provide you with practical business support as well as giving you access to Brokerplan’s Partner Lender directory when you’re up and running.
Cost: From £12,995
If you'd rather start your finance franchise under your own business brand, the Business Partner package could be for you. You get to work in a formal Business Partnership with the Brokerplan consultancy team and, if you’re just starting out, you’ll get help with branding, marketing and your business launch.
This opportunity is ideal for those who want to have responsibility for all front-end client management, but with the support of Brokerplan’s consultancy team who provide full case management. This option is also a franchise with a low investment compared to the complete Business Owner package, yet you still benefit from a 70% share of the total fee and commission income generated on all successfully closed business cases.
Cost: Entry £4995, Bronze £6,995, Silver £8,995, Gold £9,995, Platinum £11,995
The Associate programme is aimed at individuals want to work as a fully trained and supported Associate operating under one of Brokerplan’s established brands (either White Rose Finance or Acumen Finance).
This flexible option is a home-based franchise that can be run on a part-time basis alongside a full-time career as a source of additional income. You’ll benefit from an established brand and the support of the Brokerplan model. There are also several entry levels available depending on your budget.
You’ll receive up to 60% of all net fee and commission income generated on your cases. The commission level paid will change based on your chosen entry level.
Cost: From 15,495
This package has been created specifically for existing accountants, tax professionals and bookkeepers who want to extend the range of services that they offer their client base.
You’ll earn 65% commission on the total case income which has no upper limit.
Cost: Dependent on your experience and the amount of support you need
If you’re an existing commercial broker and have a desire to run your own commercial brokerage, you can choose to be a Brokerplan Appointed Representative (AR).
By investing in the Professional package, you'll benefit from the full support of the Brokerplan Network team, including case support and locum cover. You’ll also have access to Brokerplan’s 250 plus Partner Lenders.
The cost of registering as a Brokerplan AR can be negotiated as your experience will be taken into account. Ongoing support costs are just £150 per month, and you’ll receive commissions up to 85% of your total case income.
Regardless of which business packages you choose you’ll still receive comprehensive training and support for your launch. Depending on which package you’ve selected you’ll attend a two or four-day training course which will cover the following:
- Compliance with FCA regulations
- Extensive product training
- Marketing, website and brand development
- Lead generation techniques
