Effective Paid to Date for Leases/Tenancies

  • Updated

In Asia-Pacific and Europe, the terms "Arrears" and "Tenants" are prevalent. However, in North America, these are typically known as "Delinquency" and "Leases." Also, the concept of a "Trust Accounting" in Asia-Pacific equates to a "Client Accounting" in Europe. It's important to mention that the Client/Trust Accounting functionality does not apply to customers in North America.

This article will explain what the Effective Paid to Date is when it comes to managing leases/tenancies, how it calculates the up-to-date payment status of a lease/tenant, and the step-by-step guide on enabling this useful feature in your account settings. Understanding the Effective Paid to Date ensures that you can accurately monitor rental payments and stay informed about the leases/tenant's payment standing. Let's get started!

What is Effective Paid to Date?

The Effective Paid to Date represents the latest date until which lease/tenant rent payments are considered current. This includes all rent payments that a lease/tenant has made, regardless of whether they are full or partial. This date serves as an important indicator of the lease/tenant's payment status and aids in managing financial records for leases/tenancies.

Enabling Effective Paid to Date

Activating the Effective Paid to Date feature in your account involves a few simple steps:

  1. Navigate to the Manage Companies section found under Settings.
  2. Scroll down to locate the Option Features section.
  3. Toggle the setting to 'Yes' to enable the Effective Paid to Date feature.

Please note that the history of Effective Paid to Date will not retroactively apply to leases/tenancies. The date will start appearing for a leases/tenancy after enabling the feature and processing subsequent payments.
