10 ways Cash Flow Planning will Improve your financial life and more

When it comes to savings and spending plans, we normally receive questions such as:


Will I have enough money to stop working when I want to?

Am I going to run out of money in later life or can I spend more now?

Are my family going to be financially secure if I go into care or die unexpectedly?

Am I going to leave behind a bill?

How can my other savings contribute to my overall retirement income?

What is the most tax-efficient way possible I can take an income?


The Experience of Cashflow Planning


We recently helped a young single professional in her mid 20’s who was looking for guidance on her finances. She had some credit card debt, a car loan and very little savings and was concerned about her financial future.


Her main priorities were to save to buy a house and start a pension and become financially secure. She had not received professional advice prior to this.


Prior to our meeting she filled in some information about her finances (income & expenses) and told us what she hoped to achieve (goals & objectives). We arranged a one hour chat over zoom to review her current situation if she made no changes, and also look at her future financial situation. This was done using visual graphs (or say software) which were easy to understand and she could see she would be in the red (deficit!) if she didn’t start a pension! She was relieved to know that she could address this by starting a pension and it was within her budget.


She was EVEN able to clear off her debt and start a savings plan both short term and long term.


After the meeting she expressed feelings of relief, peace of mind, clarity on her finances, she says she is now more confident with money and about her financial future. She now has a plan which she didn’t have before – GPS for her future!


End of meeting – outcome, debt cleared, pension started, savings in place, plans on insuring her main asset which is her Income (Income Protection), she will be saving tax.


Here is what she had to say about the experience:

“I would highly recommend Sunrise Financial Planning. This team of women fully supported me and guided me through the necessary changes to help me build my future and were incredible to work with. It was empowering to be able to take control of my finances and not have to worry about depending on someone else for financial stability.
