Practical Steps To Lower Your Debt-To-Income Ratio

Most moneylenders in Singapore use the debt to income ratio as a way of measuring an individual’s ability to manage their debt repayments and other payments in each month. This is intended for comparing your debt amount you owe against your overall income.

Having a good credit score may always not guarantee that you will get a loan from a bank or other money lending institutions. Often Banks reject loan applications from individuals whose debt-to-income percentage are high. Therefore, it is important for you to know what debt-to-income ratio is and why it is as important to you as a borrower

The DTI ratio is a key factor that most banks and moneylenders consider before disbursing loans. Nonetheless, it isn’t part of an individual’s credit score. DTI is worked out by dividing the total monthly debt payments by total monthly earnings.

When your debt-to-income ratio is more than 36%, it means that you have a high DTI. Moneylenders and banks use the DTI to establish your ability to pay back your payday loan. Here are some strategies to help you lower your DTI ratio.

Clear Your Smaller Debts First

It is advisable that you start by paying off all your smaller debts. This is regardless of the amount, from hundred dollar credit card balance to any other small loans. Keep in mind, that even smallest debt repayments are indicated on your loan account, which thus raises your DTI ratio. Make sure you pay off the small debts in full. When you follow this strategy, you are then able to decrease your debt much faster such that in the end, it will lead to your DTI being lowered.

Also, you need to consider debt settlement as a key option for you to reduce the high debt-to-income ratio. When you take on a debt settlement plan, you are able to give a lump sum of money to your lenders. This way you will reduce the actual payday loan amount you owe.

This also contributes positively to reducing your DTI ratio thus giving potential moneylenders’ confidence in your ability to repay the loan taken. This will also make them approve your loan applications in future easily and fast.

Use A Low APR Card To Repay Credit Card Debt Of The Higher APR Card

The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is the actual interests you pay each year on your credit card balance. This is the right way to consider interest rates charged. Thus you should avoid examining the introductory plan which allows you to pay lower interests on your credit card balance.

Your credit card issuers always give low APR cards to individuals who have a good credit score. You can contact your credit card issuers to inquire about the lower APR card. Once you receive your low APR card, make sure you transfer the outstanding credit card balance from the higher APR card to the new card that has a low APR.

Once you do this you will end up paying lower rates thus reducing debt. This also leads to lowering your DTI ratio. When your credit score is bad, credit card issuers may not give you low APR card. In such cases, you may approach legal moneylender for a small loan then use it pay the credit card outstanding debt with high APR.

Refinance Your Loan

When you have a high debt which may include home loan, auto loan and another loan type, you could try refinancing it. For this, you need to contact your creditor and ask for your repayments to be extended to a term that is to lower the debt instalments for each month. And lower the debt-to-income as well. Approved moneylenders are said to offer loans of up to $20,000 though some may give more. You need to approach legal lenders with a payday loan application to see the loans they can give you.

You can also transfer your loan to a plan you are able to pay using a credit card which will help you pay one of the smaller debts you owe using the cash advance option. Despite the fact that the amount you owe stays the same, your debt instilment for each month are greatly reduced after you have closed one instalment account

Withdraw Money From Your SRS Or CPF Account To Pay Down Larger Or Smaller Debts

The Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) is useful when you are cash-strapped and can’t get payday loans from banks. Therefore, you need to think of withdrawing money from CPF or SRS account. But, you should know the cash withdrawn from your SRS account will be taxed. So weigh your options before taking funds from the CPF or SRS.

You should draw a plan to ensure the DTI is successfully lowered. Also look for strategies that will work for you then follow it diligently.

Increase Your Income

In order for you to increase your monthly earnings, you need to consider taking a second job. There are many job offers in Singapore today hence do a good such for a job that will not affect your usual 8-5 job timing. Any employment that increases your earnings for each month will positively assist in doing away with your debt easy and fast. It will also help reduce your debt-to-income ratio on your personal finance.

Asking for a pay rise will also increase your income level and it’s also a lot easier for you to do. You may also consider turning your hobby into a business, this way you are able to bring in more money. The goal is to offset all your urgent debt you owe and in turn, reduce your DTI ratio.

Conclusion

Debt-to-income ratio-DTI is not part of your credit score. It is instead a ratio that banks and moneylenders use to establish your ability to pay back the loan taken. It is advisable that you start by paying off all your smaller debts regardless of the debt amount. You could also contact your credit card issuers for the lower APR card. Once you receive it, make sure you transfer the outstanding credit card balance from the higher APR card to the new card.

    Living Paycheck To Paycheck? Why You Need To Stop This Habit Before It Is Too Late

    Living paycheck to paycheck is a thing that most Singaporeans do. While it is assumed that those who live paycheck to paycheck are Singaporeans with low incomes (and so they can’t afford to save), this isn’t true. Some Singaporeans who live for their next paycheck are people who spend their monthly incomes because they have money elsewhere. To this group, since it is just the monthly salary they are spending, they are still safe financially.

    This kind of thinking is the direct cause of the debts that several Singaporeans, young and employed, suffer with on a monthly basis. Saving money is difficult because of these debts. It doesn’t matter that you have an alternate revenue stream: saving money is crucial. Living from paycheck to paycheck and accruing debts on the way, even if it is just your monthly salary, is damaging to your finances.

    If you still aren’t convinced, then consider these few points. They might be what will trigger you into saving more and spending wisely.

    Anxiety Over Retaining Your Job

    Living paycheck to paycheck has a requirement: that you earn a paycheck. This is something you may not think about often, till you realize that your expenditures pass your earnings. When your debts start to pile up, that is when your job seems more important than ever. This increases the pressure on you to maintain your job. The increased pressure is totally uncalled-for, and can only stress you out a lot and affect your performance on the job.

    Becoming obsessed with holding down your job is not something that will help you at this point. Stressing yourself that much can only be bad for you, you could lose that job. Losing your job could be as a result of many things, such as not being a risk-taker, refusing to learn new things to maintain the status quo or a change in behaviour.

    When your thought processes change from rising in your place of work to keeping things just the way they are, you are effectively hurting your job. Losing your job because you refuse to grow happens more often in the business world today. This is because having a passable skill set is simply not enough to retain any form of employment. Employers are more interested in people who can bring new ideas to the table, who can make contributions that lead to strategic growth and development. To bring forth these ideas, you usually need to think outside the box. Go outside your position in that company and envision what you can do to make the entire business better.

    Because you live paycheck to paycheck, you become very anxious about your career security. This unhealthy focus can affect your work and your mindset, keeping you in that position for a long time – or getting you sacked from it.

    No Emergency Funds

    There is a shocking number of working Singaporeans who
    a) don’t own emergency funds
    b) have no idea about the importance of emergency funds.

    Do you also fall into this category? Then this is for you. Going from one month to the next, continuously living from paycheck to paycheck, already indicates a lack of savings. At least you should have some funds set aside for emergencies, but those are absent as well.

    Emergency funds exist to take care of all sudden monetary needs that are bound to crop up. An emergency fund is different from your savings since it has a different use: savings and emergency fund should be kept separately. No one wants to have to use up their savings for a sudden, impromptu event. You shouldn’t have to: that is what emergency funds are for.

    An emergency fund is set up to pay for any sudden financial issues that may arise. This includes paying rent, a hospital bill, or paying the salaries of your staff when revenue hasn’t been steady.

    There is no need to stress the importance of having an emergency fund. What you should worry about is living paycheck to paycheck, with no plans for the possibility of losing your savings in one swoop. Without an emergency fund, you will be in a lot of debt without much hope for bailing yourself out.

    Lack of Discipline in Budgets for Saving and Spending

    Any financial adviser worth their salt would tell you that, accounting for how much you plan to spend is just as important as making a budget for your savings. You need discipline to spend, just as you need the discipline to save. It is important to establish that discipline and pattern of budgeting your savings and expenditure early in life. It will be of great benefit to you when you go into retirement.

    CPF (Central Provident Fund) is paid out only when you retire. Why isn’t it paid out every month? Observing the expenditures of the average Singaporean answers that question. If you were to receive your CPF on a monthly basis, there is every possibility that you will spend it all before retirement kicks in. What will you do then? It is alright if you are concerned that you aren’t in control of your expenditure; you are on the right track. It is better to realize that you need discipline, and then take steps to work on it than to simply ignore it.

    If you really want to be financially secure during retirement, there is insurance that you can get for that purpose. These insurance plans arrange payouts for you per month when you retire, a structure that supports your pension. Some plans are structured in the way that you have a constant payout stream for the rest of your life. These payouts will remain so for a partner or entitled family member in the event of your death. You can get insurance coverage with these types of insurance plans, and make sure that your expenditure is restrained in your retirement years.

    Living from paycheck to paycheck can rob you of a stress-free life. It is important that you start to take steps today to maintain a healthy spending habit, have some savings for retirement, and set up an emergency fund.

      How Long Does It Take Before Your Credit Score Looks Good Again?

      Singapore has a high standard of living. It is not unusual for you to go to some financial institution to get a loan. You may need a loan for several reasons, such as taking a vacation, buying a house or car, or paying for tuition.

      For you to get that loan, from banks or moneylending companies, your credit score has to be sound. Some people don’t pay attention to their credit score till they apply for a loan. Knowing your credit score is important, just as maintaining a good credit score is important.

      Then you get your credit report and your score looks horrible. This is because all your repayments are late, and you never pay off your due balances in full. You need to get a loan, but your credit score says ‘that’s impossible’. You are at your wits’ end, fretting over how you can make your credit score look decent once more. If this is you, read on.

      Credit Score – What Is It?

      A credit score is a group of numbers, or just a number, that financial institutions such as banks use to prove that you can repay a loan, or you are most likely to default on loan repayments. For instance, the Credit Bureau Singapore (CBS) uses four-digit numbers to grade, or score, your loan history. This score, called the CBS Credit Score, goes from 1000 to 2000. If your credit report has a score of 1000, it shows that there is a high probability that you will be late on your loan repayments, or even avoid paying them. If your score 2000, it is certain that you will repay your loan, and on time too.

      You should note that CBS does not make the decision for banks to give you a loan or note. They just provide your credit information upon request. Note too that other factors affect your eligibility for a loan, such as your income, number of credit facilities you have used, length of unemployment or employment, and so on.

      Credit Score – How does it Affect Me?

      Your credit score has an enormous effect on your ability to obtain a loan. If you are aiming to get a new car or buy a piece of property, you will have to apply for a loan. This would be a car loan or a mortgage. Once the banks see your poor credit report, none of them will approve your loan request. There go the house and that sweet car.

      A poor credit report doesn’t affect just car loans and mortgage. Any type of loan, such as a payday loan, and educational loan, or a loan for a new credit card, will be denied you with that bad credit score.

      How Do You Fix A Bad Credit Score?

      If your credit score is bad (which is why you are reading this), do not lose hope. You can redeem your bad credit score, although this may take you some months to accomplish. For instance, Credit Bureau Singapore will consider your credit score clean and healthy once they can provide evidence that you have repaid loans and balances on time for 12 months.

      Therefore, you can wipe out your terrible credit past by changing your repayment attitude. In the past, you were repaying very late, not completing balances due, and constantly paying below the minimum amount. Now, you are making all monthly repayments on your loans and credit cards on time, always paying above the minimum amount. Do this for 12 months, and you will effectively clear your poor credit history.

      There are other things that you can do to keep your credit score in good light, such as:

      Reducing the number of credit cards you apply for. Credit cards can lull you into spending too much: try to use cash more often.

      Stop all activity on credit cards you aren’t using.

      Always make your payments on time. Relating to credit cards, your credit card bills need to be paid on time and in full. Even if you can’t make the minimum payments, the time you pay back every month should stay the same.

      Applying for numerous loans in very brief intervals is a no-no. Avoid this at all costs.

      Credit Score – The Unfixable

      Unfortunately, there are issues on your credit report that can’t be fixed. These problems go past the stage of late loan repayment and advance into the areas of bankruptcy and payment defaults. Irrespective of how healthy your credit report looks, once you have entered those stages, they will always appear on your report. Regardless of how much time has passed since then.

      While your redeemed repayments and what-not are reflected in a section called ‘Account Status History’, the issues of bankruptcy and defaulted payments are shown in a section titled ‘Summary’, which is at the top of the report. Specifics of the current state of those problems, such if they are in progress or discharged or outstanding, can be seen as you go on reading the report.

      What Else Do Banks Don’t Want To See?

      When you pay off your loans or bills, there are certain codes that you get. You can visit the website of the Credit Bureau to get more, in-depth knowledge of what the codes mean. The codes are denoted by letters, each with a different meaning.

      However, some of those codes can damage your credit score. These include:

      • H –This shows that your account had to be closed (involuntary closure), and it was done so while there was an outstanding balance
      • R/S – either one of these codes means that your bank has closed your credit facility or your account. Also, it shows that there has been a restructured outstanding on that account
      • W – This code stays on your credit report for life. It shows that you have defaulted on your payments, and it is the most damaging code for your loan application.

      While it may take you at least 12 months to clean your credit history, there are problems like defaults that can still affect your credit score. Nevertheless, there are some moneylending companies that can give you a loan, once there is proof that you are good for it.

          Applying For A Business Loan In Singapore

          Starting up a new business is a challenge and it will always require you to put some money into your company from some of your personal savings.

          You will also need to put in some amount of your own personal cash into the new business, even when you are well able to get some cash from your friends, family and from other investors.

          When joining and starting a new business venture, the capital contribution is, in general, a very necessary and important step. Potential creditors in Singapore will always want to be certain that you have some of your personal security mostly in the form of some personal cash injected as a stake in the new business. The money used as capital whether it’s a loan or a bonus from your company or as an investment has tax implications and impact in each of these circumstances.

          Structuring Financing Options For Your Company

          In Singapore when you need to lend-out some money to your own business or company, you will be required to have a lawyer draw up some paperwork for you defining the status of the outstanding loans you may have, the repayment plan agreed upon together with the consequences of non-repayments of the existing loan. It is supposed to be clearly stated that the existing loan is a commitment and that it is binding on the part of your business venture.

          For the purposes of taxation in Singapore, a loan from your company or business and a loan from you is an “arm’s length” business deal, which will already be treated as another debt. The interest incurred on the debt accrued is equally taxable to you as an individual and can and should be deducted from the company individually as your income.

          The principal loan amount applied for cannot be deducted to the business apart from when it makes use of the funds available to acquire more capital assets. In Singapore, the capital assets meet the basic requirements for getting depreciation deductions. The return of the principal amount of the loan applied for cannot be taxed because the loan amount was issued after tax has been applied to the amount of money taken.

          Investing In Your Business

          In Singapore, putting some money in your business is the other option to investing the money. Therefore, there no taxation to you should you receive your contributions. When you withdraw additional money in the form of dividends, bonuses or draw, the amounts are subject to taxation. In Singapore, there are no tax implications to the company on the investment made, except when is for the purchase of depreciable assets.

          10 Factors You Should Consider When Making A Contribution To Your Business Or Company.

          1. Ensure you consider the labels on the paperwork you use. In Singapore, the document stated needs to show whether it is financing document or investment documentation.
          2. Ensure you consider the source of the loan payment. You should define whether the loan payment put on a loan is realized as a kind of dividend or as a payment.
          3. You should also consider the right of the identified lender in applying for a payment from the business or company. This needs to be written in the loan documentation. In Singapore, such language and information will not often show up in a share of stocks document.
          4. Take into account the lender’s right to get involved in the business management process. In Singapore stockholders usually tend not to take part as a prerequisite for acquiring shares in the management of a business or a company.
          5. You will also need to consider the maturity date of the loan applied for. The clear and precise indication of a given maturity date implies an existing loan.
          6. Ensure you carefully consider the lender’s right to amass assets alongside the usual business lenders. This information and language are concerning the collection and bankruptcy policies of the company and it will need to be made available in the company files.
          7. It is good to be clear on the involved parties’ intent. The existence of documentation needs to clearly state and show such intent and it will be helpful with this particular component of a business venture.
          8. The satisfactoriness of a borrower’s and of the company’s source of capital. Simply put, the principal sum applied for as a loan needed ought to be equally reasonable.
          9. Ensure you take into consideration whether the stockholder’s loan amount to the business venture is a proportion to the equitable ownership in the company they are involved in.
          10. It is also important to take into account the borrowers and the businesses’ ability to get and receive loans approved from other lenders.

          Despite the consequences of a loan to a business or an individual, it is necessary for you to allocate and indicate whether your contributions are as a capital investment or a loan and attach the required paperwork to support such a claim. This will help in clarifying the tax impacts and implications of the business transactions made and also prevent any potential problems with the Singaporean revenue authority.

          Where You Can Get A Business Loan

          There are plenty of places you can get a business loan for your company, depending on the loan amount as well as your company’s financial situations. For a large loan amount with longer repayment period, banks come naturally to mind while for a quick cash flow fixer, you can approach moneylenders as they are less stringent when it comes to approval process and time taken to approve your loan.

          The Comparison Between The Threats Involved

          Each of the selections has a risk implication attached to it. When the company or business is declared bankrupt and should you also have lent the said business some money, you then automatically become a lender. This means that you might or might not be able to get your loan money back from its liquidation depending on whether the loan given was unsecured or secured.

          In case the company declares bankruptcy, the flip side would be the business owner’s investments are totally at risk. In this threat scenario, there is little or no possibility of recovering the funds you have personally invested in the business venture.

            Why Getting A Business Loan Isn’t A Bad Idea

            Starting a business in Singapore is a great idea, especially since Singapore has a stable economy and a stable political environment. Starting a business is much like starting a race: you are super excited and full of zeal and fresh ideas, but after a while you get stuck, you slow down, you run out of steam, and sometimes you stop.

            The decision to run a business in Singapore isn’t for everyone because not everyone has the chops to start a business and stick with it without getting help. You should make sure that, in the course of running your business, you pace yourself and avoid running out of steam before you have even gone halfway. Also, you need to realize that there may come a time when you will have to get some help to keep your business moving. Cash flow in a business is a problem that every business owner expects and, as such, you have to prepare adequately for that problem.

            One of the ways to solve the problem of inconsistent cash flows in your business is by getting a business loan. Business loans are a good way to help you move forward in running your business. Though this may seem like a bad idea, getting a business loan is actually beneficial for you if you are running a business in Singapore. Why is that so?

            Ensures Liquidity To Pay Monthly Expenditure

            There are always necessary expenses to pay for every month or even every week. If you are renting space for your business, you will need to pay the rent and pay for utilities such as light and water. There is the phone bill that you need to settle and your internet subscription. Then there are the monthly salaries for your staff. Running your business could quickly become stopping your business if you can’t pay your staff and they all decide to quit, or if your landlord tells you to leave his premises because you cannot pay your rent on time.

            If you think this could never happen to you because your business is in its fifth year running, you are wrong. Low revenue is a problem that all businesses face, both start-ups and older businesses, due to any number of reasons, including economic changes or alterations in the industry. In such cases, you will need to have a sure source of money so that you can meet your monthly expenses.

            Businesses that provide services can also have problems with cash flow, especially when they have to wait for receivables to come in so that they can settle other clients. Receivables can take months to come in sometimes, and impatient clients can bring lawsuits against you that will necessitate your having to shut down all business operations.

            In all these cases, getting a business loan is a good idea, as it can help you settle your financial problems while waiting for business to pick up, or for the receivables to come in.

            Ability To Expand At The Right Moment

            Expanding your business is a decision that you cannot take lightly. The timing has to be just right, with the right opportunities, before you can expand your business. This expansion could be in any form, like opening a new branch or starting a new innovative project, or starting operations in a new market overseas: all this needs to be done at the right time because when these opportunities present themselves, you might lose out to the competition if you delay.

            Because these opportunities are highly competitive, you need to have the funds you need readily available for when the moment is right for your expansion plans. Acquiring these funds could involve getting investors to back you in your new venture, or to wait until your revenue increases enough that there is surplus for you to use for your expansion plans. Both these instances are likely to cause delays for you, and that opportunity will pass you by, leaving you with regrets.

            If you would rather bypass the regrets and fulfil your expansion dreams, getting a business loan will provide you with the funds to grab expansion opportunities the moment they present themselves.
