    Hi everyone!
    Can people please tell me how do you keep track and manage the financials regarding your properties.
    I currently use and excel spreadsheet that i managed to put together, but now that I am on to 5 investments trying to track down the figures from bank statements and end of yr statements is starting to become time consuming and bordering on a nightmare!
    Is there software out there that keeps track and spits out info/reports etc and makes managing the financials on each property more efficient than what i seem to be doing now.
    Thanks!!

    Doesn't the end of year report from your pm do that?

    Alternatively have a look at xero. It has some property addons.

    I don't think xero has property add ons anymore but I have set zero up to track all my expenses and property related income so I can itemize it for the accountant with a few clicks at end of financial year.
    It takes a bit of work to set up but well worth the lack of headaches at tax time. Also great to be able to track all repairs / maintenance for each year.

    Yup, I manage my trust books using Saasu ... it's just bookkeeping software and not property specific, but I use tags to identify income and expenses for each property and my accountant logs in and generates the reports they need at tax time.

    Have a look at something like rentmaster.co.nz for a small user. Pretty simple with a long free trial and no ongoing costs.

    Hi DT,

    Yes, my managers do provide me with end of year statements, but i like to load up all the info so that i have an electronic version of my income/expenses etc.

    I will look in to xero.

    Thanks! :)
