Frequently Asked Questions About Debt Management

While cash flow and budgeting go hand in hand, they are different.

Cash flow focuses on how you send money to reach your long and short-term goals. Gold Coast Cash flow planners show you precisely what you can spend, considering your debt and assets, retirement, and the impact spending may have on reaching your goals.

Budgeting, on the other hand, focuses on the balance of your income minus expenses. The purpose of a budget is to ensure you don’t live beyond your means. Gold Coast Budget advisors look at how you spend your money, where you are overspending, and prioritise good debt from bad debt, to reduce spending and introduce saving.

A budget is a simple equation of income minus expenditure to provide a positive balance; money in must be more than money out. It’s when expenditure exceeds income that we face financial problems, problems that, often, only financial planners can solve.

The first step in budgeting is to examine your income. Look at how much money comes in each month. Include your spouse’s income to get a total.

Next, calculate your expenses. Create a definitive list of all expenses; don’t leave anything out. Items to include are mortgage repayments, rent, credit card and personal loan repayments, phone, internet, utilities (water, electricity), streaming TV services, dining out, entertainment, grocery costs, clothing allowance, car repairs, registrations, petrol, insurances, public transport, gifts and presents, bank fees, prescriptions and medicines, memberships, travel expenses, sports fees, child care etc.

Subtract your expenses from your income, and you have a basic budget. To help get you started, we have developed a kickstart budget spreadsheet, which you can download below.

Take control of your financial journey with the guidance of our Gold Coast budget advisors. Our experts can provide valuable assistance in various aspects of budgeting to help you achieve financial freedom and peace of mind. By tracking your expenses, understanding your financial situation, and making informed spending decisions, you can ensure that you live within your means and work towards your financial goals.

Embracing the power of budgeting equips you with the tools to achieve the following:

  • Understand where your money goes
  • Identify inefficient and efficient debt
  • Implement debt payment strategies
  • Establish a personal savings plan
  • Create a realistic budget
  • Track your spending
  • Understand cash flow management
  • Regain control of your finances
  • Plan for future investments
  • Build a better cash buffer
  • Budget for regular family holidays
  • Put money aside for your children

There are only disadvantages of budgeting to those not dedicated to reaching financial goals. Sure, you may not be able to go shopping as often, go to the pub as much, or buy coffee every day, but it’s a small price to pay for financial security in your later years.

Budgeting, however, takes time, and if you seek professional advice, money as well—however, the benefits far outway the initial time and advisor fees.
