Our all inclusive solution​

From the moment you choose to use NEST all our services are your to use. We believe in providing you with us much value to help you reach you business goals. If you don’t use all the products available it does not affect the systems or services you do use.

We find that although you might not need it all at once, it’s always there for when you do need it.

None at all. We will only ever charge you for monies we collect on your behalf and pay back to you.

You won’t need to. There is no limit on the amount of consultancy we offer. We understand there will be months when you need a great deal of consultancy depending on what may be happening with your business, and some months when you will need none at all.

We believe that our community of Martial Arts Instructors provides as much benefit to our Clients as our own Consultants. As a NEST Client you will be invited to our Facebook Community Group where you will be able to ask questions, advice and guidance from your colleagues whenever you need it. We also run networking meetings throughout the year (all included in the commission rate) where you can mix with hundreds of other School Owners.

Our experience over the last 20 years has taught us that the fear of student’s reactions to Direct Debit is always worse than the reality. However we have put together guides and FAQs for you so you feel confident to answer any queries your students might have about the new payment method.

Although your first port of call should always be your Accountant, we have a wealth of expertise here in house and will be able to answer any queries you have relating to your business structure and which would benefit you the most.
