The coronavirus outbreak has made a big impact on the nation's finances. The pandemic has affected many people's incomes, but with bills and debts still to pay, it can be very stressful during these difficult times. With Christmas soon upon us, this can add more financial pressure and uncertainty. "What if I don’t know how to deal with my debts?" or "What if I'm made redundant?" are just some of the questions people may be asking themselves.
