Nearly everyone saves, especially in Belgium. And that's all for the better too, because a buffer to cover unexpected expenses could come in handy one day. If you have a savings account, that's great! So, be sure to check out our top savings tips:
• The ideal size for a savings buffer depends on your personal
situation, but a good rule of thumb is to keep the equivalent of three
to six months' net salary in reserve.
• Make it easy for yourself by setting up a monthly standing order to steadily build up your savings buffer.
• Look into the possibility of a tax-advantaged savings scheme (such as pension saving). Make sure you use it optimally: tax relief can be as high as 30% of what you pay in each year.
