Free fi­nan­cial ad­vice for ADF mem­bers

Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Ali­cia Per­era

A Kar­ratha ac­count­ing firm has started pro­vid­ing pro bono fi­nan­cial ad­vice to lo­cal Aus­tralian De­fence Force mem­bers and vet­er­ans suf­fer­ing hard­ship.

RSM last month formed a part­ner­ship with Brav­ery Trust, for­merly the Aus­tralian De­fence Force As­sis­tance Trust, to pro­vide the free ser­vice to de­fence force mem­bers ex­pe­ri­enc­ing fi­nan­cial, men­tal or phys­i­cal hard­ship as a re­sult of their ser­vice.

RSM fi­nan­cial ad­viser to Kar­ratha Robert Zam­mit said it was de­signed to give ser­vice­men and women eas­ier ac­cess to solv­ing their most com­mon fi­nan­cial is­sues, in­clud­ing bud­get­ing, man­ag­ing debt and ne­go­ti­at­ing with cred­i­tors.

RSM Kar­ratha Busi­ness Ad­vi­sory se­nior man­ager Glynn Judd said the wider Kar­ratha area had, for its size, a fairly large de­fence force com­mu­nity and en­cour­aged them to take up the pro bono ser­vice. “(This ini­tia­tive) just shows the com­mit­ment we have to the com­mu­nity we live and work in, and we recog­nise the sac­ri­fice that cur­rent and for­mer mem­bers of the de­fence force have made on our be­half,” he said.
