About us

Making a difference in people's lives

MyBudget is dedicated to helping people live the life they want free from money worries.

We've been proudly fulfilling our mission to reduce financial stress in the community since the company started in 1999. We've helped more than 110,000 Australians get on the path to financial success.

Today, MyBudget is recognised as the nation's leader in personal budgeting services.

Our story

Tammy Barton (formerly May), MyBudget's founder and director, started the company from her kitchen table when she was 22 years old. Through her work at a legal firm, Tammy had witnessed the impact of financial hardship on clients who had little understanding about how to reduce their debts or take control of their finances.

From these humble beginnings, Tammy has combined motherhood with growing MyBudget into a national company which now employs over 250 staff members. We currently manage over $1 billion and process more than 4.8 million transactions on behalf of thousands of clients every year.
