While we would all like to think that every cent we earn works for us positively, sometimes the dollars and cents don’t add up, causing debt. An effective debt management plan can help you navigate your debts and provide strategies to change your debt from working against you to working for you.

Overcoming Debt Challenges

Navigate Debt with Centaur Financial Services

Navigating the complexities of debt can be overwhelming, making it challenging to know where to start and how to take control of your financial situation. Research from ING highlights that a significant number of Australians, including millennials, ignore their debt and feel uncertain about managing it effectively.

At Centaur Financial Services, we understand the concerns and uncertainties surrounding debt, and we’re here to provide expert guidance tailored to your unique circumstances.

Even the richest of the rich have debt. But the big difference is the rich leverage good debt (deductible debt) to maximise their nest egg. In contrast, others accumulate bad debt (non-deductible), which sends them into a financial spiral.

The key to achieving good debt and minimalising bad debt lies within expert debt management. There is no better debt management advisory firm on the Gold Coast than Centaur Financial Services.

If your debts are preventing you from building on your nest egg, then chances are, bad debt, such as credit card debt, is pulling you down, working against you. On the other hand, good debt, such as your mortgage, is building your nest egg, working for you.

An effective debt management plan doesn’t focus on just one strategy; instead, it comprises multiple strategies tailored to your current financial situation. True, debt management starts with professional advice. Still, along with the advice, we recommend strategic actional measures that, when combined, can help optimise your debt repayments and place you in a better financial position.

Frequently Asked Questions About Debt Management

Debt management is the process of investigating one’s current financial position, considering personal, investment, and income circumstances, to identify good and bad debt. A debt management plan, using effective strategies, is then formulated and set in motion to turn bad debt into good debt, which in turn, aids wealth accumulation.

At Centaur Financial Services, we understand the concerns and uncertainties surrounding debt, and we’re here to provide expert guidance tailored to your unique circumstances. Whether you have bad debt, good debt or a combination of both, a debt management plan from our expert advisors will be beneficial. With an active debt management strategy, you can regain control of your finances and look forward to a more prosperous future.

Our Gold Coast debt management advisors can help you with the following:

  • Identify inefficient and efficient debt
  • Help you understand the difference between good and bad debt
  • Implement debt payment strategies
  • Create a realistic monthly budget
  • Pay off your debts sooner
  • Identify areas to cut back to put towards debt
  • Gain peace of mind
  • Worry less about meeting repayments
  • Get confidence in your financial future

The question everyone wants to know is, how do I pay off my debt quicker? It is easy, but you must be motivated and prepared to change your spending habits. The only way to pay off debt quicker is to assign funds from elsewhere to your debt. This may mean only eating out once a week or not at all. Other surefire ways to pay off debt quicker include:

  • Stop using your credit cards – if you can’t afford it, don’t buy it. You will never pay off debt if you keep accumulating debt.
  • Call the bank and ask them to reduce your credit limit – you can’t spend it if you don’t have it.
  • Keep track of your spending – give yourself a spending limit, and don’t surpass it.
  • Meet your monthly payment requirements on time to avoid additional interest.
  • Pay more than the minimum payment each month.
  • Meet with a debt manager at Centaur Financial Services.

Yes! Of course, however, our Gold Coast debt managers can only do so much. Having a plan in place is one thing. Following the plan is another. Just like a dog trainer, they can show you how to train your dog for better behaviour, but if you don’t uphold your end of responsibilities and continue to implement change, they will return to their old behaviour.

It’s up to you to continue actioning your debt management plan’s advice and recommendations for change to occur. Fail to do so, and you will go back to accumulating more bad debt, and your goals will continue to be further out of reach.

There is some financial risk in all forms of debt, whether it’s a mortgage, credit card, personal loan or otherwise.

Financial risk categories include liquidity, funding, interest rate, foreign exchange, commodity price, and business or operation risks. The more in debt you are, the higher the risk exposure. By having a debt management plan in place, you are essentially reducing your risk exposure by meeting your payment obligations.
