Monitoring financials and keeping track of rent payments coming in are aspects of rental property ownership which landlords often struggle with. With all the changes to rental property taxation like depreciation and the LAQC changes and new LTC’s it will be more important than ever to keep on top of the financials and budgets to make sure you have sufficient cash flow and plan for taxes before the end of the financial year. The reason landlords and property investors often struggle with this area is that they do not have an adequate system in place. Xero is an ideal solution for property investors whether they are small scale investors with only one or two properties or have large investment portfolios.
