Tightening the Belt Budgeting for beginners

N

o one really likes to budget do they? Many of us may like to start a budget and enjoy the large amount of savings or repayment of debt that is optimistically forecasted. Sadly however, how many times does it end in a binge fest of dining out, or, grabbing that expensive treat that you feel like you deserve? In truth, this article is inspired after consuming a few too many Easter eggs, and spending a little too much money during recent long weekends. Which oddly lead me to realise that budgeting is similar to dieting. Although I am definitely not an expert in dieting, I do believe that one of the important things to avoid is starving yourself. Similarly, when it comes to budgeting this is an equally important first step. Avoid setting unrealistic low levels of spending, otherwise that ‘binge fest’ will be inevitable. The Realistic Budget It is all too common for us to be overly optimistic when preparing a budget. Therefore, here are a few quick steps to make your budget realistic: • Analyse the money you have received and spent over the last three months. This will give you an idea as to what your natural spending pattern is really like.

• List all the money you expect to receive, and spend, in the next three months. Remember increase some costs i.e. power during the winter, interest rates.

Avoid setting unrealistic low levels of spending, otherwise that ‘binge fest’ will be inevitable. Nick Ashford, Withers Tsang

• Compare your analysis from step 1 to your list in step 2. If your expected income is more than the amount you actually received in the last three months, then specifically list the date and reason for those additional amounts. If you don’t know the date and amount then are you really sure you are going to receive it? If your expected costs are less than the actual spent in the last three months then specifically identify which costs you plan to reduce, and ensure that they are not necessities i.e. rent, mortgage payments, power.

• Trim only a bit at a time, i.e. pick a few specific costs that can be reduced and focus on those specifically. After this is done, you should be able to create a spreadsheet that will give you your budget for the next three months. You could stretch this budget out for a year, however, doing this can often make the budget more aspirational rather than realistic. Aim to achieve the first 3 months. then once done, adjust for the next 3 month period i.e. focus on some new costs to trim, and ensure that you have altered any amounts received or spent from the previous 3 month budget period accordingly. Warning Indicators Do not wait until the end of the 3 month period to see how well you met the budget. You should set indicators. These will give

you a quick guide as to your progress. Usually these indicators will be either a specific increase in your bank accounts or a decrease in debt. Alternatively, you can keep a limited amount available in an account or credit card each week. Once that money is gone then you know you are about to exceed the budget or you have exceeded your budget. Good luck to all of you who are about to embark on a budget. If you need any help in setting up a budget personally or for your business then feel free to contact us here at Withers Tsang and Co Limited. Note that this article is general in nature and does not constitute specific advice. Please consult your accountant or Withers Tsang & Co Limited for further consultation regarding your specific needs.

The rise eventually would bring floating mortgage rates from multidecade record lows up to around 7.5 to 7.75 percent.” So that said, with the NZ economy seemingly steaming forward now is the time to fix mortgages or rethink your existing structure. If your loan matures in say 2 or 3 years’ time, then I would recommend that you work out

what the payment would be if it was at that rate now. Then, start paying that payment now. This means that you have just increased that amount of principal you are paying the bank so that your mortgage could be paid off over a shorter term. Alternatively, it also means that when the loan matures you are already accustomed to higher payments and it won’t be such a shock. Feel free to contact me to discuss restructuring your loans or getting a new one at the best rate.

ere is a home not only in a great location but built to last with solid masonry construction, concrete block walls and concrete foundations which gives it a Mediterranean feel. The house is light and spacious throughout with a fantastic opportunity to introduce their own personal flavour and make it into something special. The layout is modern with two levels; the upstairs features the large open plan living, dining and kitchen area and the sarked ceiling adding a sense of space. One aspect of the kitchen is that it has a high counter, which separates the mess of culinary excellence from the dining area. The master bedroom complete with its walk-in wardrobe is upstairs. There are two well-appointed bathrooms, one on each level. Downstairs is another lounge with indoor/ outdoor flow from two sides and a kitchenette. Another two double bedrooms are also on this level and there is a separate access to a patio and the back garden.
