The History & Evolution of Australia Made Simple
Established in 2014 as a subscription guide to assist those attempting to Emigrate to Australia without the use of a MARA Agent or Solicitor the founders quickly became aware the issues facing many applicants weren’t limited to questions around what visa they apply for and the immigration process itself.
“The procedure for completing an Expression of Interest in Skill Select for example, is actually relatively straightforward.” explains Alexander McManus, founding partner of Australia Made Simple.
“It seemed like the people we were interacting with were full of enthusiasm, excited by the prospect of moving to another country and making a very real difference to their lives. “It seemed like we had this huge wave of excitement that quickly turned to disillusionment after people started looking into the process in more detail.
With so much conflicting information clients were desperately emailing and contacting us even though we were clearly producers of a MARA agent edited consumer guide.”
During this time Australia Made Simple distributed over 10,000 copies yet the level of interest received and the amount of people from all over the World searching for a firm that would put their needs first, a professional legal services migration firm that employed the best talent, that charged based on work completed rather than entire payment in advance and of course assisted with the whole application from start to finish.
The Core Principles of Australia Made Simple were born and Australia Made Simple launched as Migration Consultancy, with a clear vision to challenge the ‘old world’ bureaucracy and ‘closed shop’ practices of the Australian Immigration Industry.
In 2018 the firm was acquired by Tannhauser Capital in a private placement and rights issue. Tannhauser Capital, a private equity partnership based in Munich added Australia Made Simple to their portfolio of high growth, entrepreneurial challenger companies in the online legal services market.
Here at Australia Made Simple we like to set ourselves big challenges relaunched in September 2018 on a mission to make Australian Dreams Come True and in turn by doing so, become the most successful Australian Immigration Company in the World.

7. MARA Agents and Solicitors
Our Associate consultants are either MARA Agents in Good Standing or Australian Solicitors and as a new client you’ll receive an introduction to your Associate from the very start. We believe firms should have more than just an ‘available agent’ or ‘outsourced compliance’ so every client engages directly with our MARA Agent from the very start, under the MARA Code of Conduct.
