Struggling with debts? Help is at hand

By Staff Writer

If you are having problems paying your debts then debt management through a qualified debt counsellor could help you reduce your monthly repayments and take control of your finances.

Debt management could help you if:

 

  • You're struggling to meet your monthly debt repayments
  • You're getting calls from credit providers and lawyers
    demanding money
  • You want to avoid administration and insolvency
  • You want to solve your debt problems
  • You want to pay just one amount each month

If this is you then DebtBusters, a regulated debt counsellor, could help you get back on track by setting up a debt management plan that enables you to pay off your creditors with a single, affordable payment every month.

  • Putting you under debt review, which stops your creditors from chasing you whilst your financial situation is assessed
  • Advising you on coping with your debts and creating a payment plan for you
  • Dealing with your credit providers to reach an agreement on paying your debts
