This Module is designed to handle the Accounting of YOU as a Vacation Rental Manager, to help you save time and reduce human errors.

It will show what you, your Rental Owners and other collaborators should earn from the activity.

Moreover, you can create Invoices, send the details to your collaborators, keep track of the payouts that were done and get Net Accounting Statistics.

The Accounting Module is adaptable to any type of business. No matter how you operate, we can help you find the way to fit your needs.

How to set up a successful strategy in your Vacation rental Business

The Module is built on three basic concepts: Recipients, Accounting Statements, and Payments.

1. The Recipients are all persons and/or companies that should earn money from any given Reservation/Service/Fee/Tax. You will need to create a Strategy for each one of them to indicate to the system how much each of them receives from the earnings of each of the Rentals. This is a one time set-up.

2. Once the Strategies are set up, you’ll choose the periodicity you’ll want to account your Bookings for, decide whether you’ll group them per Rental Owner, per location, or do a Statement for each Rental individually.

You can do this by simply scheduling out the Statements + Payments with the periodicity needed in each case. This is a one time set-up.

Statements = summary of the incomes of your Bookings during the selected period + for the selected Rental(s)

Payments = the result of applying the Recipients Strategies on your Statements = how much each collaborator should earn for each Statement

DONE! Your Accounting will now be done automatically for you.

You will just need to open the Statements each accountable period to check that all details are correct and send it to your collaborators.

After the configuration,

Optional handlings:

Extra items (such as cancellation fees, maintenance costs, electricity bills, charged damage deposits) are not detailed in your Bookings, and therefore any extra “earned” by a Recipient will need to be “paid” by another Recipient in order to balance out the amounts.
