What should I consider when budgeting?
Important considerations when it comes to budgeting and cashflow include:
- Do I have a good understanding of my current expenses and saving potential?
- Does my current bank account structure make it easy to track my spending habits?
- Am I directing my surplus cash towards my goals regularly?
- Could I be doing more with the money I’m saving?
Stripped down to its simplest definition, budgeting is a process we take our clients through initially to understand the income and expenditure of their household income and determine their cashflow position. Without a clear understanding of your cashflow position and spending habits, it’s difficult to be certain of your financial progression and whether the strategies you’re implementing are appropriate or even feasible.
Our role when giving cashflow guidance is to provide our clients with an automated, easy-to-follow system to manage their money and track their spending. We’ll have in-depth discussions around your goals to discover your focus over the short, medium, and long term, and subsequently provide you with recommendations on how to best utilise your surplus cashflow towards achieving these objectives.
