Debt allows us to buy things that we would otherwise not be able to own and enjoy, like a family home.  What’s more, using debt the right way can be a great method to create wealth and reduce tax along the way.

The trick is to make sure you’ve got the right type of debt, and that this debt is working for you in ways that will help you achieve your financial goals and objectives.  This might include paying off debt that is not helping you ‘get ahead (for example, your credit cards): or it might even include borrowing to invest (and ensuring the interest is tax deductible).
