Do you have a list of goals and want to achieve them? 

Do you want to tick off your wish list as well?

Right now, you might be thinking about wish lists and vacation plans. However, you end up spending without a plan that your finances suffer once the vacation is over or the wish list is checked off. These are the times when you want to understand how to budget, spend, save, and invest at the same time.

1st step to better money management is the right financial planning which helps you to achieve your financial goals. 

But, what’s Financial Planning?

Financial Planning is a step-by-step process for achieving your life goals. A financial plan serves as a road map as you travel through life. It essentially aids you in maintaining control over your income, expenses, and investments so that you manage your finances and reach your goal.

Here are 5 tips from LXME that you can follow to ace your financial plan in the year 2022-23.

Financial Plan 2022- 23

1 ) Follow the 50:30:20 Budgeting rule

The 50:30:20 budgeting rule helps you to maintain a budget effectively. When you receive income divide it into 3 parts. Where 50% of your income is used for your needs, 30% of your income towards wants, and 20% of your income you save and invest to achieve your future goals.   

2) Set goals!

Before making any investment, set and decide your financial goals based on a timeline.  For example:- 

  • Ultra-short term goals – Goals that are needed to be fulfilled within a year.
  • Short-term goals – These are goals that you want to achieve in a 1 to 3 years time period.
  • Long-term goals –  Goals that need to be fulfilled after 3 years can be considered long-term goals.

We at LXME recommend you the following 5 must-have goals: –  

  • Building emergency fund
  • Health insurance
  • Term insurance
  • Retirement planning
  • Wealth creation  

3) Start investing early!

Start investing today, even if it’s a small amount as long-term investments help us avail the benefit of compounding that works its magic over time. For example: Tina started investing ₹1000 monthly SIP starting from 25 years of age and she will be investing till her age of 60. Whereas Kiara started investing ₹1000 monthly SIP 5 years later from the age of 30 and she will also invest up to age 60. So the amount both of them will receive is –

Here, Tina just started investing Five years early than Kiara, and Tina’s investment value is almost double Kiara’s investment value. So start investing early!  

*Returns are assumed to be 15%. Mutual Fund investments are subject to market risks, read all scheme-related documents carefully.

**These are approximate values of investment.

4) Plan your taxes 

Start planning for your taxes at the beginning of the year so you don’t end up making unfruitful decisions at the last minute. Things to keep in mind. 

  • Don’t just invest to save on taxes but also make investments smartly that help you in tax saving along with earning a return to fulfill your goals.
  • There are many tax deductions that help you to save on taxes. Such as Section 80C for saving tax on loan repayment, life insurance premium paid, pension contributions, and so on.
