Meet the Business Planning Group

The Business Planning Group is one more way that Drake Software focuses on ensuring success for you and your clients. It was formed as a back office for your firm to provide case management, review, preparation, and technical support for tax preparers who use Drake Software in the areas of tax reduction through qualified plans, retirement estate planning, and business continuation and restructuring. BPG has specialists in these areas exclusively available to you through your relationship with Drake Software.

Transparency, service and integrity are the building blocks for the Business Planning Group, as are the principals and staff, who have 40-plus years of experience and more than 150 years of combined practical experience. The owners of the Group—Frank DeArmond and Tony Brooks—are committed to your success.
