Budgeting is in many ways the most fundamental and effective financial management tool available to anyone - its simple and costs nothing. It's important to do whether you are an individual, family or a business.

A budget is basically a money plan. It anticipates what income you will receive and what expenses you will incur going forward. Once done, you can organise and control your financial resources (your cash flow and assets), set and achieve realistic goals, and decide in advance how your money can work for you. In this way, a budget allows you to plan with confidence what you need to do, and when.

A budget will allow you to take advantage of opportunities, because you will know whether or not it is affordable - you will not need to guess or wonder. Inevitably, when doing your budget for the first time, you will find extra money, by realising where you may be wasting money, and by spending your money more efficiently.
