Working Capital

Working Capital is typically required during the start-up and establishment period for any new business venture. While the business is developing a healthy turnover and cashflow, working capital is used to balance out any shortfall in income versus expenses. For example, working capital may start from $50,000 depending how long it takes to establish your cashflow. We recommend you have sufficient cashflow for the first 3 to 6 months.

Monthly Fees

Monthly fees are calculated as a percentage of gross monthly revenue.

Monthly Franchise Service Fee: 6%

National Marketing fee: 2.5%

Your Simply Helping Franchise fees include:

  • National marketing campaigns to promote brand awareness in your territory.
  • Use of the Simply Helping brand and Intellectual property.
  • A generous and exclusive franchise territory.
  • Ongoing business development and support.
  • Access to proven business systems.
  • Personalised web and social media presence.
  • Industry specific software.

Franchise Territories

Your franchise territory is protected, with exclusive rights to operate a Simply Helping home care business. This protection guarantees the franchisor will not establish or grant rights to another business in the exclusive territory. Each franchise territory is generously sized for optimal growth, considering:

  • Networking with major health care groups.
  • Other primary health care providers, and
  • A healthy mix of demographics for home care.

Franchise territories are clearly defined by dynamic mapping boundaries for effective search results.
