Content of A Property Manager’s Guide to Financial and Property Management
Section 1: Getting Started
Don’t be intimidated by switching to QuickBooks. This section shows you the location of all of the QuickBooks functions so you can easily navigate through your file. You, the property manager, won’t have to waste time trying to find certain lists or transactions because you will be given a list of every keyboard shortcut. If you have any questions or hit a wall somewhere along the process, you will be given a list of different resources to find answers. If you are afraid to try something different in your file, you can always use our free QuickBooks sample file.
As a property manager you need to know both the cash and accrual basis accounting systems and how to work with item and customer lists. Learn the easy definitions for that complex accounting terminology and begin understanding your financial reports. Finally, you will learn how to backup and restore your file to prevent data loss. We know how important for you is to keep your property management and accounting data in place.
Section 2: Your Company File
Now that you have the basics down, you will be ready to upload the QuickBooks template file, which already includes the Chart of Accounts. Next, you will learn how to setup user accounts with or without password protection and input your company’s information. Discover the differences between the types of expenses you encounter when managing your properties even before you attempt to enter in transactions.
You will be provided with step-by-step instructions for transferring the old balances over from your previous software. Everything from outstanding vendor bills and credits to security deposits are outlined. Afterwards, you will be shown how to use the To Do List and Reminder functions so you will never forget to input any of the transactions discussed in the later sections of the QuickBooks guide for property managers. Finally, to save you the time and effort of entering recurring transactions, you will be taught everything there is to be known about memorizing transactions.
Section 3: Managing Owners, Properties, and Tenants
QuickBooks is ready to go and you now know the basic functions to use it. It’s now time to Manage Properties with QuickBooks! First, enter and record information for your leases, tenants, properties, and units with all of the different lease options.
And once your leases are recorded, we will look at the long-term processes that go into every lease. Learn every step of tracking and receiving tenant payments within QuickBooks. 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 are covered.
Finally, it’s time to get paid! Learn how to deduct management fees from the owner’s proceed and how to write a check to the property owner within QuickBooks. If the owner gives you reserve funds to cover any costs, discover how to manage this to pay for the expenses or transfer the funds to the owner’s proceed.
Section 4: Managing Vendors
This section covers every step of hiring an outside vendor to do work on your rental properties. When you start working with a vendor to make improvements or do repairs, make sure you enter a work order to track the arrangements between you and your vendor so you are always informed about your rental property or units. You can track vendor deposits if your vendor requires one. When the work is completed, you can enter and pay the bill.
Avoid finance charges by entering in your payments by credit card or check into QuickBooks. If you need to void a check or a check bounces, make sure you record this to keep accurate financials. Lastly, if you overpaid, you can enter the vendor refund into QuickBooks. As you can see our property management QuickBooks guide will teach you everything a property manager needs to know.
Section 5: Miscellaneous
Since you now know everything about Managing Properties with QuickBooks, you can use this section to familiarize yourself with a few more valuable functions of QuickBooks not specific to property management. For example, for you have small expenses, you can set up a petty cash account. If you want to utilize QuickBooks’ online services, you can connect your bank and credit card accounts to online statements. If you need 1099 forms, letters, or templates for your vendors, learn how to print them directly from QuickBooks. Finally, reconcile your accounts using our system to make sure your balances are accurate.
