spending plan review budgeting
Spending Plan Review (budgeting)

A cash-flow (or income and expense)

Statement lists and summarizes income

and expense transactions that have taken

place over a specific period of time, such

as a month or a year. It tells you where

your money came from and where it went.

debt to gross income ratio
Debt to Gross income Ratio
  • The debt-to-income ratio (DIR) is calculated by dividing debt repayments by gross monthly income.
  • Debt to Gross Income (DIR)ratio =

Debt ÷ Gross monthly income.

debt payments to disposable income ratio
Debt Payments-to-Disposable Income Ratio
  • The debt payments-to-disposable income ratio (DDIR) divides monthly disposable personal income (not gross income) into monthly debt repayments (excluding mortgage debt).

Spending Plan Review (budgeting)

A balance sheet consists of three parts: assets,

liabilities, and net worth. Assets include

everything you own that has monetary value.

Your liabilities are your debts – what you owe to

others. Your net worth is the dollar amount left

when what is owed is subtracted from the dollar

value of what is owned – that is, when liabilities

are subtracted from assets.

asset to debt ratio
Asset-to-Debt Ratio
  • The asset-to-debt (liabilities) ratio compares total assets with total liabilities (debts). It provides you with a broad measure of your financial liquidity. The assets-to-debt ratio shows whether a client is technically solvent.
