Everyone can work out a Personal Budget. You don’t need to have any special skill or knowledge to do it. Personal Budgets are also called Financial Statements.
If you have trouble paying bills or are in debt you can use your Personal Budget to show the people or company you owe money to:
- why they should accept lower payments from you or
- that they should offer you a different deal because you can’t pay the one you have now
