Life Events

Everyone goes through different lifestages. Each of those stages
may involve changes in our financial situations. Whether you are
buying a house, preparing for education or starting a family, there
is plenty to consider.

Unfortunately, things may not always go as planned.

Buying a Car

For many people, owning a car is a necessity. But it can be costly too - and not just because of the initial purchase price.

Higher Education

Going to college or university involves a lifestyle change and considerable costs, especially if you decide to study away from home.

Paying Taxes

It is important that everyone understands what they owe in taxes and what benefits they are entitled to.This section runs through the different types of taxes and how to pay your tax.

Setting Up a Home

A home is at the top of most people's priority list in financial planning, whether they are renting or buying.

Starting a Family

Starting a Family is probably the biggest single life-changing event in your life. Raising a family has an enormous impact on your financial circumstances.

Making a Will

Seventy percent of adults in the UK do not have a will and half of us will never have made one. This can cause anguish and bitter disputes among family members.


When you retire, you give up the regular income from your job and it is replaced by a state pension and in some cases, a personal pension.

When Things Go Wrong

Things in life do not always go according to plan. It is important to be aware that unexpected events can occur. These may include divorce, loss of job, illness and others.
