Setting Financial for the Coming Year


As the calendar flips to a new year, it's the perfect time to reflect on your financial journey and set resolutions that will pave the way for a prosperous future. Join JMH as we explore specific actions you can take to set meaningful financial resolutions tailored to the Canadian landscape.

 

Conduct a Financial Health Check:

Begin the year by assessing your financial well-being. Review your income, expenses, debts, and savings to determine realistic goals for the coming year.

 

Establish an Emergency Fund:

Life is unpredictable, and having a financial safety net is crucial. Resolve to build or bolster your emergency fund. Aim for three to six months' worth of living expenses to weather unexpected storms with confidence.

 

Create a Realistic Budget:

Develop a budget that aligns with your financial goals. Crafting a realistic and sustainable budget will ensuring that every dollar has a purpose and contributes to your overall financial well-being.

 

Maximize Tax-Efficient Savings:

Explore tax-efficient savings options such as contributing to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) and Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). Our CPAs can help you understand contribution limits and develop a strategy that optimizes your tax position.

 

Set Debt Repayment Goals:

If you have outstanding debts, set clear goals for repayment. Whether it is credit card debt, loans, or mortgages, developing a structured plan to reduce and eliminate debt can assist in freeing up resources for other financial goals.

 

Explore Additional Income Streams:

Diversify your income by exploring additional streams. This could include a side hustle, freelance work, or investment opportunities.

 

Plan for Major Life Events:

Anticipate major life events such as home purchases, education expenses, or starting a family. Creating a financial plan that accommodates these milestones will ensure a smooth transition when they occur.

 

Educate Yourself on Financial Literacy:

Resolve to enhance your financial literacy. Stay informed about changes in tax laws, business opportunities, and personal finance strategies.

 

Regularly Review and Adjust Resolutions:

Financial circumstances and goals may evolve throughout the year. Make it a habit to regularly review and adjust your resolutions to stay on track. Our CPAs offer ongoing support to ensure your financial plan remains relevant and effective.
