How to Track Management Income in Propertyware

August 10, 2021

Make sure you're getting the most out of your Propertyware reports. This article will guide you through the process of tracking management income in Propertyware so you always know the health of your business.

What is your property management income comprised of? Knowing the granular data of your income, you are able to make a more sound decision on where to focus your business. By default, everything in Propertyware (PW) falls into the 4015: Management Income GL account. However, PW also allows you to track management income on a more detailed level. In today's blog, we will teach you how to do just that!

How to track your PM income

Knowing that you are receiving income is one thing, but knowing where that income is specifically coming from provides a new perspective. Propertyware allows you to customize your system so that you can look at your management income on a microscopic level. Here are the steps to setting this up:

1. Enable Track Management Income

  • Go to "Setup" > "Customize" > "Management"
  • Click "Edit"
  • Scroll down to "Management Income Mapping"

2. Add Granular Management Income GL code to the Chart of Accounts

  • Go to Setup > Customize > Chart of Accounts
  • Click New Account

3. Map the Management Income

  • Go to Setup > Customize > Management
  • Click Edit
  • Scroll down to Management Income Mapping

Now you should see a list of all the expense accounts that you will want to map to a specific income account. You will need to create the income accounts first in the Chart of Accounts.

Any vendor that you have categorized as a Management Company will bring back the bill payment back into the system in "Money In" > "Other Customer".

How it works

You would first create the Bill from the Management Company vendor:

Then you would need to pay the bill:

Locate the payment in Money In > Other Customer. This payment is brought back into the system for you to deposit:
