Using the well-tested network of debt advice services recognised by the Austrian State, the challenge is to not let indebtedness become reality. Especially if their income is low or if they are in a situation of financial upheaval, the concerned can – with the help of a so-called reference budget – check whether indebtedness is threatening – and how it can hopefully be prevented. This can be done anonymously and self-guidedly anywhere in Austria by using the budget calculator at www.budgetberatung.at or as part of a personal consultation in six of Austria's nine provinces (full coverage being aimed for).
