Managing your debt

 Debt and Cashflow Management

Debt is part of modern life. It can be used to help you reach your goals, but only when you are in control of it, not when it is in control of you. It’s easy to build up little bits of debt here and there that don’t appear to amount to much, but can quickly eat into your cash flow.

Common questions to consider

Some questions you may wish to consider are:

  • Where does all my money go?
  • How can I manage my money better?
  • How can I take control of my debt?
  • How can I pay off my home loan sooner?
  • How can I be smarter with my credit card?
  • How can I consolidate my debts?
  • How do I make the most of my savings?
  • What is the benefit of starting now?

It can be challenging when it comes to understanding where your money goes and how best to manage it.

Debt is a fact of life for most Australian households. Over the last 20 years, the debt levels of the everyday Australian household have increased considerably thanks to low interest rates, low unemployment and a strong economy.

But how much have we really taken on board, and who will be the most affected if Australian economic conditions change?
