Free financial advice for ADF members
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.
