I'm looking for a funding company for my school. I'm leaning towards United Professionals because they only take 5% of profit as oppossed to 10% from KF Funding. Who has had good or bad experience with either of these or any other companies?

Thanks,
Pete

We were with UP for a bit, but they were too commerecial for us.

They provide some nice ideas, but they are also very TKS based (in England at least).

To be truthful, its better to do it without them - they don't bring in any special aspects, just things you can do yourself.

Hope this helps

TKS = TKD

I want to use a funding company so I don't have to deal with collecting dues and I can just focus on teaching. My friend did without one for a few years then switched over and said he wishes he did it from t he start. It has made his life so much easier.

OK, sounds like a good idea to me. Just remember that there will still be problems - parents coming to you asking about fees etc.

But like I said, it probably will work for you. I just didn't like it

I def. see there will be some problems still with the billing service. However, I would rather deal with a few complaints than with a few nonpaying students. Plus with the billing company I now only have to focus on teaching and not collecting dues. So money won't get in the way of my teaching.
