Q: I have rentals properties, will this program work for me? If so, where do I list my tenants?
A: Yes, QuickBooks can be adapted to meet your property management needs using some simple workflows and procedures. Here is a mini mini version of my guide Manage Properties with QuickBooks:
- Create a new company file and select property management or rental for landlords Chart of Accounts
- Create a Customer and Class (for Owner)
- Create a Job and Subclass (for Property)
- Create a Job (for Unit)
- Create a Job (for Tenant/Member name)
- Enter an invoice and memorize it
- Receive a payment
- Make Deposit
- Create statements, if necessary
- Enter and pay bills or write check
- Reconcile all accounts
- View your reports – Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet for accuracy
Of course there is more than what is noted, but this is the basic set-up and steps.
