A Bond or Deposit is often paid at the commencement of a tenancy, held for the duration of the tenancy, either by the agency who collected it, a 3rd party authority or the owner of the property. At the conclusion of the tenancy, those funds are refunded, less any debts to the tenant.
A New Bond invoice can be raised within the tenancy file, the steps here can also apply to a Bond Increase where the top-up amount needs to be invoiced.
Open the Tenancy select the Bonds tab
Select the New Bond Invoice button
1. Select where the bond will be held for the duration of the tenancy- if the wrong selection is made after the save and approve status you must void the invoice and create a new one.
2. Tenancy details including the due date of the invoice & the Chart of account code- this should be a liability code most commonly known as 720- Bonds.
3. Enter the amount the bond invoice
4. Select the appropriate invoice status.
Funds can be reconciled to the Bond Invoice in the same way as rent or other amounts. If the payment is to be held by a 3rd party authority or the property owner, it will appear on the Bonds page when a disbursement is processed.
The Bond record may be edited and a lodgement reference added at any time by selecting the menu option to edit reference.
