The VAT increase announced by the Minister of Finance in the 2018 Budget Speech will be implemented on 1 April 2018. As a result, now is the best time to assess your budget and find ways to make your money stretch even further. Luckily, there are ways to do this, like identifying areas in your current budget that you can cut back on, as well as make certain lifestyle changes that contribute towards the increase in your monthly expenses.
One key thing that many people overlook when it comes to saving is identifying things they can do to ensure they don’t unnecessarily overspend – renewing your licence disc is one such thing! This process can prove to be a rather tedious process that often results in many of us leaving it to the last minute, in order to avoid the long queues at the license department. But the reality is, if not renewed on time, you accumulate interest on what would have initially been a manageable amount to pay. In addition to this, if you get caught on the wrong side of the law, with an expired licence disc, this will cost you even more – ultimately affecting your monthly budget.
To make this an easier and effortless process, take the time to find out about services and products that will work to your advantage. You may already be paying for services that incorporate value-added services, such as renewing your license disc. Beame Protect’s Licence Assist is such a service and forms one of five value-added services that a Beame customer can purchase for a small monthly fee.
Beame will go as far as to notify you of any pending licence renewals that are due. We will also help you with renewing your licence quickly and easily, ensuring a hassle-free licence renewal process and, most importantly, avoiding penalties for late payments – a good way to incur substantial savings
As with any solid savings plan, a good starting point is to do your research and find ways that you can reduce costs which, in the long run, impacts your overall savings. So, just as you would find out more about what your current service providers can offer you, check other areas of your life where you can cut back a little and make the most of your money.
