Money Week


Money Week presentation – Talking About Money (presented by Tauranga Budget Advisory Service)

Tuesday 15 August, 5.30 – 6.30pm

Tauranga Budget Advisory Service is very excited to present this workshop to you during Money Week. People have better lives if they have the capability to manage their own finances. You will have the opportunity to take away some helpful tips and ideas on how to manage your debts successfully. We are embracing a cultural shift where it is easy to talk about money. The more we talk about Money with our partner, family and friends the better we get ahead financially. At our event, you will learn the difference between good debt and not so good debt. We will provide tips to get out of debt faster, understand the actual cost of borrowing, and negotiating with your financial service provider. Every day at Tauranga Budget Advisory Service, we help clients who are not able to pay the minimum debt commitments, due to change in income or other reason. These can include credit cards, hire purchase, personal loan, car loans and Mortgages as well as pay day loans. Come along and learn some helpful ideas and tips.

*new session added* Lyon O’Neale Arnold series on Relationship Property

Wednesday 9 August, 12.30 – 1.30pm OR 5.30 – 6.30pm

Understanding your rights and obligations is important to all people in relationships, whether married or not. The Property (Relationships) Amendment Act 2001 provides how ownership of assets is dealt with both during relationships and after they terminate. You should know how this law applies to you and how to contract out of the legislation if you so choose. This presentation will be presented by a lawyer from Lyon O’Neale Arnold and Barrister, Ewan Eggleston, who specialises in this area of law.

This is an extra session that Lyon O’Neale Arnold have agreed to do for us in addition to the schedule that already available for the year as this topic has popped up in the form of questions a number of times during their other presentations.
