Why draw up a budget plan?
It’s actually quite simple: you have income and expenses. The only way you will have money left over to save up for something you want or to make an attractive investment is by earning more than you spend. OK, let’s be honest: we shouldn’t be putting money aside for our wishes and dreams alone. It’s important to have reserves so that we are prepared for any unforeseen expenses, able to pay our taxes and can provide for our retirement in the long term.
With a budget plan, you can obtain an overview of your finances and find out where you are spending money unnecessarily, as well as where you could perhaps save a bit more money.
