What Does Net Worth Mean?
According to Financial Dictionary the definition of net worth is: 'The amount by which a company or individual's assets exceed their liabilities.' In other words, what you own after you've deducted what you owe.
Calculating your net worth is quick and easy to do, once you have all your financial information to hand, and with our Net Worth Calculator Plugin you can keep track of your finances online.
Why Calculate Your Net Worth?
Letting your finances go unchecked means that you may unwittingly fall further into debt. If you calculate what you're worth every month it's a way of staying on the straight and narrow - for the majority of people; ironically, those who could do with calculating their net worth rarely do. Of course, even if you're not laden with debt checking your net worth regularly is a good financial habit to have, and gives you the chance to congratulate yourself every now and again on your excellent budgeting skills.
