Easiest Way to Streamline your Annual Accounting

Easiest Way to Streamline your Annual Accounting

Most important tip is to make sure your accounting is as easy as possible, especially for the future. 


I recommend that you have a separate rental bank account, where the rent goes, and all expenses are paid out of. 


For example, if you need to pay $3,000 for a heat pump, you personally introduce the $3,000 into the rental bank account and then pay the expense from the rental bank account. 


Or, if you have paid for an item on your personal credit card, that the rental bank account reimburses you for this straight away.  This keeps things simple.


Kind regards
