So you have lots of spreadsheets, bank statements and receipts and want to bring it all together? Landlord Vision is the right place to do so and this simple guide will explain the process.
- Firstly, set up whatever portfolios you need. This will allow you to create separate sets of accounts for your different portfolios if needs be. Any landlords assigned to a portfolio will then be assigned to any properties created within it.
- Next, create your properties. These are your main assets after all. All of your incomes and expenses can be assigned to a property.
- Then create your tenancies. This will create the payment schedules for each of your tenants and allow you to track payments and arrears.
- Enter your mortgages. These have their own section so that you can monitor your loans, the repayments and the interest rate changes.
- Enter your expenses. Once you have all of your repeating expenses in it becomes much easier to track these and you can then add the one off payments.
- Enter any other incomes and outgoings that you may have. These include wages, director's loans and personal drawings.
- Once you have all of your incomes and expenses entered into Landlord Vision, you can then reconcile everything against the bank statements.
When you are happy that everything is correct, begin to run reports. For your day to day business you might need: Property Occupancy, Key Tracking, a Statement of Account or Tenant Welcome Pack. For your final accounts you will most likely need: a Broker Summary, the Balance Sheet, Cash Flow, Profit and Loss and the Income Tax Report.
