The first vital step in taking control of your finances is to create your own personal budget plan. Our user friendly money management tool is free to use and should only take minutes to complete if you have all your financial information to hand.
Before you start to use the budget planner there are a few things that will make it easier to fill in. You will need information on:
You will be asked to enter whether you are single or in a couple and how many dependent children you have. We use the same definitions as the benefits system.
You will be asked to enter all your income and expenditure. The budgeting calculations are based on the information you enter, so be as accurate as possible. If you do not have all the information you need to hand you can save your budget and come back later.
