  • Home
    • Does that repair really need to be done now?
    • Friend or relative who may be able to help with cheaper repairs?
    • Are you able to look up how to solve the problem online and do it yourself?
  • Tax
    • Try calling the Inland Revenue, discuss your situation, and if they can help with a payment plan?
  • Business

In many situations, there can be alternative solutions and it is sensible to consider all these before committing to more debt.
