Before you start

Get as much accurate, up to date information as you can. Bank statements can be really useful, as they show your regular income and outgoings. Wage slips, pension income or benefit statements might be helpful too.

2

Make a start

Enter how much money you have coming in and what you're spending. This is your income, which might be wages, bonuses, benefits, pension or tax credits. Your outgoings, or household spending, is the money you spend on food, bills, rent and other essentials.

Check your results

We'll show you a breakdown of your finances so that you can see how much money you have left after your expenses. This is known as your disposable income. Then it's up to you to decide how much of that disposable income you want to put towards your payment plan.
