Budgeting

We assist our clients to identify their current financial situation, and how this relates to their income and expenses. We ensure that all income and expenditure is included to form a complete and accurate budget. This process includes ensuring that our clients are receiving the appropriate entitlements for their income situation, which includes the correct support from Work and Income and Inland Revenue.

Once we have completed this process, we have a snapshot of where our client's finances are at the point in time they meet with us, we follow up with them on points raised in this discussion, including extra income support that is required and how these can be accessed.
