Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
In their efforts to make the debt relief process easier, National Debt Relief, a BBB accredited company, released a budget planner worksheet that their website visitors can download. The company believes that among the many tools used by debt ridden Americans, a budget plan is one that can help with both getting and staying out of debt.
A budget plots the income and expenses of the planner so they get a general view of their finances. Based on “Personal Budget”, one of the personal finance articles published on the same website, a budget is when you “tallied up your weekly or monthly income and compared it to the average amount that you spend over the same period.”
After observing and analyzing the habits of the many clients that they have helped over the years, National Debt Relief believes that a budget plays a key role in any debt solution. The company is a proud member of the AFCC (American Fair Credit Council) and have successfully helped thousands of Americans with their debt problems. They are known to campaign a lot of tools that aimed to help consumers stick to their debt relief programs.
The debt relief company believes that a budget aids in keeping a person on track when it comes to their finances. This enables them to live within their means and adjust their expenses accordingly to see how debt payments can be increased.
The budget planner worksheet is set on a 12 month period. Everything is automatically computed and the user is only tasked to input the corresponding figures as indicated on the worksheet. To maximize the planner, National Debt Relief encourages the users to input accurate and realistic figures based on their current lifestyle.
The information needed are divided into 9 categories: income, home expenses, transportation, utilities, medical, financial, enjoyment, routine, and family expenses. The planner is as detailed as possible to allow the user to be as thorough with their budget as possible.
The budget planner can be viewed using the a spreadsheet program. Any figure that will be encoded will automatically be totaled and averaged to help the user gain better understanding of their current finances. It also automatically gets the difference - which becomes the disposable income. This income is a major factor in choosing a debt relief option. If the difference is marked in red, that signifies a deficit. The user then has to decide how to decrease their expenses to make sure that it does not exceed their income. Of course, they have the option to increase their income to eliminate the need to cut back on spending.
