    All Subscription Plans and Pricing

    When loading companies or trusts in Connectworks you can select the plan that’s right for each client you manage - there's no requirement to use a single subscription plan for your firm. You can transfer between plans yourself at any time without penalties. All pricing is GST exclusive.

    All companies and trusts have a 30 day free loading phase before being subscribed to the chosen subscription.

    Note: If the entity is still in its 30 day free loading period but you wish to activate it early, just select the Activate now option next to the subscription type. Be aware that activating the AML or Guest plans will remove your access to the entity's workspace. Ensure you complete these profiles in entirety before activation.
