How to get more money to pay off your home loan with commissions

Entering the property market, no matter how many times you’ve done it, is usually a stressful experience. Not only are you making the biggest financial commitment of your life, you are also locking yourself into a potentially restricted lifestyle for many years to come.

Some people find the experience too overwhelming and opt out of home ownership altogether. The main cause of anxiety relates to money – what else? The two main reasons as to why the home loan you initially signed up with has now become unaffordable is because of rising interest ratesand loss of employment income.

Contrary to what the lenders preach, the home loan market is not that easy to navigate. To many people it seems like they’re just going round in circles. Of course some offer cheaper rates than others but basically the products are all very similar. This is because the underlying philosophy is exactly the same in each of the competing home loan products. They all have trailing commissions built into the interest rates. So regardless of which product you end up with you can’t turn off these trailing commissions. Whether your interest rates are fixed or variable, you still end up paying trailing commissions for the entire duration of the loan.

Commissions – Show me the money

Virtually anyone with moderate wealth or a decent income could benefit from the services of a financial planner. By a financial planner, I mean someone with the expertise to produce a comprehensive financial plan for an individual household. This plan should cover the household’s financial goals, budget, insuranceand risk review, asset allocation, retirement plan, and a review […]

Today's Quote:

Can I receive the trail commission instead? Yes, but it’s slightly more complicated than it needs to be. Product providers only pay commission to financial advisers who are authorised and regulated by the Australian Securities and Investment Commissions, i.e. they’ll refuse to pay commission directly to you. However there are a few advisers, called ‘discount brokers’, that won’t give you any advice but will rebate some, or all, of the trail commission they receive (expect a small admin fee if all commission is rebated). If you’re comfortable looking after your own financial affairs then opting for this route could, over time, save you thousands of dollars or more. You just need to transfer the commission servicing rights on your existing investments/products to such a discount broker and they’ll either arrange to have the commission re-invested or sent to your bank account.

Personal Tax Consultation and Financial Planning

Personal Tax Consultation and Financial Planning

When one assesses successful individuals against ordinary individuals there is often more than luck to be thanked for their success. Generally a successful person has a plan and sets both financial and personal goals for themselves.

Hiring a personal tax consultant or financial planner might be the best decision you can make for yourself and your family. Your personal financial planning must be structured in a way that takes external factors into account whilst maximising on what you can do to better your situation. Taking advantage of tax incentives, Investment planning and detailed budgeting can be important elements in maximising wealth and ensuring long-term financial stability.

A top tax consultant in Ireland recently stated that personal financial arrangements could be much better managed if you paralleled the functions to that of a country planning its economic activities. Managing your personal economy as a ‘small nation’ can be narrowed into 5 main themes namely

Capital Spending (‘Weekly Expenditure’ for individuals)
Foreign Borrowings (‘Financing & Debt Control’ for individuals)
Taxation (‘tax planning’ for individuals)
Savings Incentives (‘Retirement planning’ for individuals)
Government Bond Issue (‘investment decisions’ for individuals)

Managing only one aspect of the above would not result in great personal economy. For example: hiring a tax consultant that only focuses on legal compliance. The route to successful financial planning encompasses all of the above items and requires realistic but intuitive goal setting strategies. Ideally you would want to manage all the above at one service provider for an integrated approach. Of course choosing the right service provider comes with its own pitfalls.

Here are a couple of tips on how to choose a financial planning partner and avoid the common scams/pitfalls. Immediately cut off contact with financial sales consultants who press for immediate answers and cannot adequately simplify their service description into everyday language. Scam artists often bury their victims in jargon and put time limits response times from you.

Never judge an individual’s work ethic based on their appearance or mannerisms. Con artists are often polite and great with people. When choosing a financial planning expert they will quick often have to be registered with your country’s Financial Regulator. Ask for their registration details and do your research on the company both online and offline. Don’t be scared to ask for references either.

Personal Economy is a unique concept developed by McNamara and Associates Financial Services. The company are professional tax consultants in Dublin, Ireland, with a focus on wealth protection.

Year End Business Financial Planning In 4 Easy Steps

Year End Business Financial Planning In 4 Easy Steps

Copyright (c) 2010 Kelly Totten

Fall has arrived and it’s the perfect time to do some business financial planning. At this time of year, we’re concerned with multiple things…finishing the year, taxes, and getting a jump start on the plan for next year. It can all become overwhelming pretty quickly. Here’s a 4 step process to keep you on track…

I. How has the year been going?

Before you can determine what you need to do in the 4th quarter and beyond, you have to know where you’re coming from. If you don’t have up to date financial reports, get them done NOW.  The end of the year will be here before you know it.  Generally speaking, surprises at tax time are not good surprises. This is also the first step to ending the year in a good place and planning for next year. Once you have your financial reports:

->Take a look at your profit and loss by month. 

This will help you see if anything is missing, particularly monthly or quarterly recurring payments.  It’s also a good way to find categorization errors.

->Review your budget/forecast/projections versus actual reports. 

Are you where you planned to be at this point in the year?  Are your sales on track with your forecasts? Are your cost of sales and expense in line with your plan? If not, why not? 

->Review your financial ratios. 

Are your key ratios in line with your goals? Are you hitting your gross margin target? Is your net profit where it needs to be? Is your days sales outstanding looking good?  How is your debt to equity?   

II. What do you need to do to finish the year strong?

Now that you can see where you’ve been this year, you can make a plan for the rest of the year.

->Forecast Revenue

Based on your year so far, historical numbers, and marketing plan, what revenue goals are achievable for the rest of the year? If you haven’t been doing well this year and you really need to bring your A game to 4th quarter, what are you going to do differently? In your review process, you should have pondered why your year hasn’t gone according to plan.  Use that information to inform your plans for the 4th quarter.  If you have been meeting your targets so far this year, review what is working for you and what you need to do to maintain the momentum.

->Adjust Spending

With your year to date information and your revenue plan for the 4th quarter, what changes need to be made to your spending plan?  Will you need increase labor spending to meet your 4th quarter goals?  Do you need to reduce labor costs to get your financial ratios where they need to be? Have you been spending your marketing dollars on things that aren’t working? Do you need to spend more on sales and marketing efforts that are working? 

->Collect Aggressively

If your business is like most businesses in the b2b service arena, the first quarter is known for clients paying slowly.  To keep your company running smoothly in the first quarter, you must collect aggressively in the 4th quarter. Be vigilant about getting deposits on your fourth quarter work and get December invoices out as early as possible.  Ensure your accounts receivable team is staying on top of collections and do your best to get everything possible collected before everyone heads out for the holidays.

->Keep An Eye On Cash Flow

The first quarter collections slow down means you’ll have to be extra careful with your cash flow. Make sure you’re maintaining an adequate cash reserve to handle your critical bills and payroll during the first couple months of the new year.  If your historical trends show first quarter to be normal or strong for cash collections, you may want to pay forward some of your debt in 2010 to get the tax deduction this year (assuming you’re a cash basis payor). Also make sure you adjust your cash flow forecast to coincide with any revenue or spending adjustments.

III. What are the tax impacts?

Once you have accurate financial reports through the end of September and projections for the rest of 2010, get an appointment to see your tax preparer (or at least send them your QuickBooks file and projections).  The sooner the better.  Your preparer will be able to give you an estimate of how much you’ll owe, instructions for estimated payments you need to make to avoid penalties, and tips for reducing your tax bill.  After December 31st, it will be too late to strategize for savings.    

IV. What about next year?

After you’ve gone through the process for the 4th quarter, you can extend the process for next year.

->Forecast sales

Base your sales forecast on historical figures.  Estimate a percentage of increase in historical sales and make adjustments for one time windfalls. Add estimates for additional sales channels or products.

->Create a Budget

Use your sales forecast and historical spending to inform your projected profit and loss by month for the upcoming year. Make adjustments for new employees, equipment, and any other known changes that are needed to achieve your goals.

->Develop a Cash Forecast

Use your budget to inform your extended cash flow forecast. Make adjustments for when you expect revenue to hit your bank account and when your expenses will actually be paid. If the ending bank balance goes negative, you may have to adjust your budget.

Once you’ve completed this process, you’ll have a strong business financial plan in place. Regularly reviewing your plans with your actual results will ensure you have the information you need to make smart decisions.

Make a Financial Plan and Work the Plan!

November 5, 2010 Financial Planning No Comments

Make a Financial Plan and Work the Plan!

In my 20 plus years of consulting small and medium size businesses it is rare that I find a business with a financial plan that is being monitored. Most financial plans are generated to obtain a bank loan and once that purpose is served the plan usually finds its way to the lower bottom draw of the owner’s desk to collect dust. The other day I had an occasion to check one of these plans out with a client whose business was in trouble and sure enough, most everything in the plan had been ignored. If only part of the plan had been followed and monitored the business would have been profitable and not in need of any outside help.

Usually when a financial plan or budget is first put together it is based on the business history, knowledge of the business and industry, and some valid assumptions about the business future. A flight plan is put together in much the same way, however as soon as the plane takes off and winds change, adjustments must be made in order for the plane to reach its destination. The same holds true for a financial plan. Once the business is put into operation, some things change either with the product or the marketplace, and adjustments must be made to achieve the profit objective. Therefore, a financial plan must be monitored to identify the variables as they present themselves.

In a business these variables usually present themselves when a Profit and Loss statement is compared to a financial plan. Unfortunately, since most small business owners do not value their financial plan there is no urgency to check it against a P…L statement that tells you what actually happened in the business for the particular period of the report. Since the plan is not being monitored it is very easy for the business to head off course and in the opposite direction of its profit objective.

Comparing each item in the Profit and Loss Statement (What is actually happening in a period) to the Financial Plan (What you want to happen) will identify the variables and help you identify where problem(s) exist in meeting your profit objectives. However, identifying the problem is only the first step in solving it. You must research further to find what is really causing the problem and then make the necessary adjustments. Various solutions should be considered before picking the best solution, and after implemented, the new solution should be monitored to see if it really solved the problem.

The importance of a Variance Report that compares a financial plan (budget) with a profit and loss statement cannot be overstated. These are two important management tools to control your business and reach your profit objectives. If you have a financial plan, start using it to control your business, and if you do not have one, create one, it could mean the difference between success and survival. Good Luck!

Financial Planning – Is It Necessary?

November 4, 2010 Financial Planning No Comments

Financial Planning – Is It Necessary?

Give me five `good reasons for doing financial planning.

1. You need to work out a way to gather the wealth you want

2. You need some basic security for yourself and your family, which means know that you have a predictable income and a certain amount of emergency funds if your income should temporarily disappear for one reason or another

3. To give your children the best education possible: The best schools providing higher education are normally the most expensive.

4. Be able to do things or travel to places you always have dreamed of not only after you have retired (you may not live that long) but also when you are relatively young.

5. Be sure that you don’t use more money than you earn

These were just a few examples. I could find many other arguments for financial planning.

There is a good case for starting some financial retirement planning while you are still young. There has been a lot of news recently about pension funds going bust, and leaving their investors with nothing; so it is only natural that you should try and find another solution to your future retirement.

There are many people who can advise you, from bankers and brokers to independent financial planning advisors. Financial retirement planning is not like planning what you will do with all your free time: in fact, there is a lot less dreaming and a lot more financial planning work.

The first aspect of financial planning should be where you are now in terms of money. Do you owe a lot, or are you bothered by the amounts that seem to go adrift from your budget? Clear these up before you begin your financial retirement planning.

Most financial plans are bound up with the future, and you need to consider how much you think your costs will go up by each year, and adjust the amount you will need to fit in with this. For example something that is 20 years in the future may rise by as much as 300%. Take this into account when doing your financial planning, as otherwise you may end up short of your goals.

Start planning your goals as early as you can. Financial planning at the last minute is never going to work. Before you start planning, you should look at the financial retirement planning of others in a similar job and with a similar pay scale.

You should also be aware of what your benefits are, and what you could be offered. Remember, living costs will not diminish during retirement, so you will need to save as much for each year as you are currently spending.

You Need A Financial Plan

November 3, 2010 Financial Planning No Comments

You Need A Financial Plan

The traditional “American Dream” that average citizens can better their lives, not worry about paying their monthly bills, give their children opportunities better than their own, and still be able to save towards a comfortable retirement has become harder to achieve and maintain. For many Americans this dream has been replaced by rising costs, debt, declining wages, and ultimately a downsizing of their dreams. Yet, while some Americans seem to be struggling financially, others are getting ahead. Why? For many, the answer to this question lies in having a plan – a financial plan customized to a family’s own unique dreams and goals.

While some financial planners deal mainly with investments, a good financial plan often needs to go beyond these strategies. The needs and goals of every family are unique. Therefore, a financial plan should be customized to a family’s individual needs and can include some or all of the following areas:

Retirement – Everyone I know has great dreams for what they want to do after they retire, but more and more retirees are finding themselves rejoining the workforce in order to make ends meet. Starting a retirement plan is most effective when started early in life, but this is the time people are least interested. They key to saving for your future is to start as soon as possible. Even if you are currently saving for retirement, get a retirement check-up. You want to make sure you have an adequate plan while you still have time to change it if necessary.

College Education – I was shocked when I heard that by the time my son and daughter go to college, 4 years at a state school could cost as much as 0,000 and a private school even more! You need to start saving when you children are young. Even a small amount saved consistently over time can make a big difference. There are two savings vehicles you can take advantage of that allow you possible tax benefits – a 529 college savings plan and a Coverdell Education Savings Account.

Life Insurance – Life insurance is almost a necessity – especially if you have children. Knowing that your family will be taken care of is definitely a source of great comfort. I know a lot of people who do not have life insurance, do not have enough life insurance, or do not have the right kind of life insurance. You need to make sure that the amount of coverage you have gives you and your family the protection you need.

Household budget – Creating a household budget is just deciding to spend your money on purpose before you actually spend it. For some, this may be as simple as deciding to spend 60% of their income on fixed expenses leaving 40% for saving and having fun. For others, a more comprehensive budget is needed to address their spending habits. The bottom line is that you need some type of budget to help you save towards your dreams and goals.

Saving for financial goals – A family’s financial goals can include anything from buying a new home to going on a family vacation. Whatever these goals are, the best way to achieve them is to start saving before you need the money. I have seen too many people who have gone into debt, or at best overextended themselves financially, to achieve their goals because they did not plan ahead and start saving now.

Debt management – Imagine what you life would be like without any credit card debt. This can be a reality, but for many people I know, being in debt has become a way of life. The average household debt and personal bankruptcies has been steadily increasing. You need to have a plan to aggressively get rid of your credit card debt. Only then will you be free to start saving towards other important dreams and goals.

There are several things to consider when developing a financial plan. While many parts of a financial plan you may decide to do yourself, eventually you will need a financial advisor to help you implement the plan and take care of all the details. Make sure that you are comfortable with the person you choose. For most people, their dreams, goals, and financial situation will change. You need to make sure that you can update your plan as often as necessary to account for these life changes and make sure your plan is working. Whatever you decide, the important thing to remember is that a good financial plan will help you achieve your dreams and goals. The sooner you start, the sooner you can start turning your dreams into realities.

Robert Westervelt has been doing financial planning for the past few years with a desire to help people get out of debt and achieve their financial dreams and goals. Most recently he has started a website to help families start developing their own personal financial plans.

Did you know?

Is your financial adviser receiving commission for nothing? If you’ve been sold an investment product or pension and have heard little from the adviser since, then the likely answer is yes.
Too few people realise that buying a financial product from a commission-based adviser could continue lining the adviser's pockets for as long as you own the product. This might be fine if they continue looking after you in return, but many don't. Neglect this and you could lose out on receiving either valuable ongoing advice or potentially thousands of dollars of commission rebates.

What are commissions?

The vast amounts of products supplied to the public by Product Providers have built in charges. A part of these charges are accounted for by commissions paid by the Product Provider to the Seller of the product. However, even if there is no seller as such and the member of the public purchases a product direct from a Product Provider, these charges are generally not reduced and so the charge remains the same whether there is a seller or not.commissions are paid and applied in a number of guises; some commissions are termed ‘initial’ commission and usually paid once only to the seller immediately after commencement of the relevant plan/policy.

Initial commissions are relatively large amounts. Renewal or ‘trail’ commissions are usually paid as well as or instead of Initial commissions; these are regular monthly/quarterly/annual payments. Each payment of trail commission is a relatively small amount in itself but as they are paid throughout the life of the policy they become substantial in totality.
