How Doctors Can More Easily Budget

Yves SchoofBusiness

Many of our young medical clients want to become better at managing their cash flow, including reducing their expenses.

While some try to track this manually by way of a spreadsheet for example, the reality is that you need to automate it as much as possible.

There are various platforms such as Myprosperity and MoneySoft that make this exercise much easier.

Many of your expenses will be auto-reconciled to categories such as utilities, entertainment, etc leaving other expenses to be reconciled by yourself – typically you can set up an auto-rule for similar transactions in the future, so you will only have to do this once.

After a few months you will start to get an idea of where you spend your money, so you can take targeted action if required.

It can be quite confronting, but at the end of the day, without a correct diagnosis, your finances won’t get any better.

If you are interested in discussing this, please get in touch with us. We use myprosperity for our clients.

Author | Specialist Adviser for Medical Specialists and Surgeons at Affluence Private Wealth
I specialise in managing and coordinating the financial affairs of medical professionals and have been recognised as one of the best financial planners in Australia. I am a Certified Financial Planner and member of the Financial Planning Association of Australia.

As I understand your time is extremely valuable and scarce, I am able to offer flexible meetings times, including outside business hours and during the weekend. I can even come and meet you somewhere convenient, or talk via videoconference on Skype.

My first consultation is free. I allocate up to 90 minutes to discuss your personal circumstances and to establish how I may best assist you. Where you already have an existing adviser, I would be happy to offer a second opinion. I always quote a fixed dollar fee before we start working together.

Please contact me on or call me direct on 0432 885 295. You can follow me on Twitter @YvesSchoof or connect with me on LinkedIn to receive new articles.
