Yorkshire Building Society launches new tool to help people budget
31 January 2019
Look out for a change in the appearance of your YBS website soon. We are redesigning the site and will be launching the new website in the next few weeks.
Yorkshire Building Society has launched an online calculator to help people budget and manage their household bills.
The new household budget planner encourages people to understand what their outgoings are and what they have left each month to help them see if they can start saving or increase their savings pot.
The budgeting and household bills calculator prompts users to enter their monthly income and outgoings associated with running a home and maintaining their current lifestyle. This might include:
The calculator also encourages people to consider other monthly costs, such as:
As well as the prompted outgoings the household budget planner also allows people to put in their own custom outgoings. It then calculates their total monthly household budget and visually outlines how much money they can expect to have left, before providing tips to help people get into the savings habit.
Louise Halliwell, senior savings manager at Yorkshire Building Society, said:
Our new easy-to-use calculator can help you understand your finances better and take steps to start saving.
Whether it’s saving for a life event such as a wedding or first house, or growing a rainy day fund in case the boiler breaks, life is full of ups and downs.
Taking steps to review your money and look at how you might be able to start or increase saving could help you financially prepare for both the good and the bad in the future.
