Debt

Debt is the amount of money owed by one party to another party. Here, the parties are generally known as debtor and creditor, i.e., the party that owes the amount is the debtor and the party who lends the amount is the creditor or lender. Debt is a deferred payment, meaning the owed amount is to be paid back at a future date.

In accounting, debt is considered as a liability i.e., when you owe a debt then you are lawfully responsible to repay it to your lender.

Types of Debts

Below are the most common types of debts:

1. Secured Debt: Secured debt is a form of debt that is required to be backed by some security. The most common examples for such loans are mortgage loans and auto loans.

2. Unsecured Debt: This kind of loan is provided without keeping any asset as security. Borrowing money from a credit card is the best example of such loans.

Know Your Finances

There can be situations in life where you need to get debt. But it is also necessary to understand the ways to manage your finances to avoid depending on them every time you need money. Some of the ways that one should follow to manage your debts are:

1. Pay your bills on time each month. If necessary, create a monthly calendar for a bill payment that helps you figure out the amount to be paid by you.

2. Always maintain a fund along with every loan you owe, to pay off the interest of all your ongoing loan. This will help you pay back your loan on time.

3. Know about the loans that you apply. You should always be aware of the pros and cons of the loan you are applying for in order to prevent your finances that get affected badly.
