Content of the Guide

Content of A Landlord’s Guide to Financial and Property Management

Section 1: Getting Started
Don’t be intimidated by switching to new software. This section will teach you where everything is in QuickBooks so you can easily navigate through your file. You will be given a list of every keyboard shortcut so you don’t have to waste any time trying to find certain lists or transactions. Even before you are taught the basics, you will be given several resources that may help answer a question, just in case you hit a wall somewhere along the process. You can always try something out in our free sample file if you are afraid of messing up your own file.

As a landlord who is managing his own properties you need to understand both the cash and accrual basis accounting systems and be taught how to work with item and customer lists. Learn the short and sweet definitions for accounting jargon so you can better understand those confusing financial reports. Finally, you will learn how to backup and restore your data.

Section 2: Your Company File
Now that you know how to use the QuickBooks software, we will show you how to upload the template file so you don’t need to spend any additional time setting up the chart of accounts for your rental properties. You will discover how to easily setup user accounts and input some of your company info. Even before you attempt to enter in transactions, learn the differences between the types of expenses you encounter when managing your property.

You will be assisted in transferring the balances over from your old software. Everything from outstanding tenant invoices to checks and deposits are outlined. Afterwards, you will learn to use the To Do List and Reminder functions so you won’t forget to input any essential transactions into QuickBooks. Finally, you will be taught everything there is to know about memorizing transactions so you won’t have to keep entering the same transactions over and over again.

Section 3: Managing Properties and Tenants
QuickBooks is setup and you as a landlord have the basic knowledge to use it. It’s now time to manage properties with QuickBooks! First, you will learn how to record the property purchasing procedures such as earnest deposits and HUD 1 Settlements. If you want to use a third party property management company, make sure you track your reserve funds. You will also learn how to record your leases and tenants with different lease options.

Once the leases are recorded, look at the long-term processes that go into every lease. Learn every step of tracking and receiving tenant payments. Whether you are at the very beginning of a lease and dealing with security deposits or at end of an early terminated lease and you are dealing with bounced checks, rent credits, and eviction letters, this section will outline it for you! Also, late fees, vacancy rent loss, invoice generation, and tenant statements will be covered in detail. You will learn property management accounting for a landlord from A to Z just like we promised.

Section 4: Managing Vendors
This section of the QuickBooks guide covers every step of bringing in an outside vendor to do repairs or improvements. When you start work with a vendor, make sure you enter a Work Order to track the arrangements, so you are always “in the know” about your rental property. If your vendor requires a deposit, you can track that in QuickBooks, too. When the work is completed, enter and pay the bill. The payment options of checks and credit cards are outlined, as well, to make sure you avoid those pesky financing charges. Lastly, if you overpaid, you can enter the vendor refund into QuickBooks.

Section 5: Managing Loans
Track your loans and escrows by recording bills or checks, or by utilizing the loan manager. You will learn the difference between mortgages and line of credit loans, as well as the different procedures to track them. Account for all loans to make sure your company does not miss a payment.

Section 6: Miscellaneous
Since you’ll now know everything about using QuickBooks to manage your properties, use this section to refer back to everything you learned, as well as learn a few more valuable functions of QuickBooks. For example, you can use the petty cash account for your small expenses. If you want to connect your bank and credit card accounts to online statements, we will cover the steps. If you need 1099 forms, letters, or templates for your vendors, print them directly from QuickBooks. Finally, our checklist to reconcile your accounts and make sure your balances are accurate.
