All businesses face financial stresses and issues at some point. Property owners are no different. There are a plethora of common problems that home owners face, and with your accountant helping you put the right procedures in place, they can be dealt with swiftly and effectively.
What are the common issues property owners face?
- Bad tenants- do not look after the premises and cause damage to the property. They also do not make rent payments on time or refuse to pay
- Keeping up with mortgage payments- if you do not budget and have control over your finances, or have tenants secured, it can be difficult to meet your monthly payments
- Getting permission for development plans
- Not reading contracts thoroughly, and understanding all the terms and conditions specific to your property
- Dealing with costs of refurbishments, and plumbing and repairs
What services do property accountants offer?
There are many important roles your accountant plays in ensuring the smooth-running of your properties and finances. They are an integral part to the successful handling of important documents such as tax returns and ledgers. For example, your accountant may help you with:
- Reviewing financial records as well as commercial and residential property agreements
- Tax efficiency- such as your tax returns and bookkeeping
- Financial reports- this usually includes a record of company assets, accuracy of ledgers, accounts, portfolios and balance sheets
- Handling your taxes, budgeting, payroll and generally monthly expenses
Having an accountant does so much more than just reduce the nightmares associated with this field of work. It enables property owners and managers to monitor, evaluate and manage a property’s income, expenses, reserves, cash flow and economic performance.
