What are the duties of a Property Bookkeeper?

What are the duties of a Property Bookkeeper
Property bookkeepers typically assist property accountants in the performance of their duties. The split of responsibilities can vary depending on the property management company and the skills of the workers in each role. Here’s a list of some of the more common tasks in rental property bookkeeping:
  • Record day-to-day financial transactions
  • Verify that transactions are recorded in the correct day book or ledger
  • Bring the books to the trial balance stage
  • Complete tax forms as instructed by the accountant
  • Enter data, maintain records, and create reports and financial statements
  • Process rent payments and pay invoices on the owner’s behalf
  • Act to recover rent from delinquent tenants
  • Assist in budget management
  • Reconcile bank accounts
  • Gather information for the auditors
Property bookkeepers need general business and accounting software knowledge, experience with maintaining ledgers, and an understanding of general financial principles. They are organized and have impeccable attention to detail.
They work well as part of a team and have good communication skills. Many have a bachelor’s degree in accounting, business administration, or finance.

Where to hire a Property Bookkeeper?

Where to hire a Property Bookkeeper
Your primary choice is to hire locally for this role. However, hiring locally is the most inefficient way to fill the position. Recruiting and hiring a property bookkeeper requires considerable time and effort.
All the time you spend on hiring is less time looking for other properties to manage. Just think about all the tasks involved in recruiting and hiring a bookkeeper:
  • Posting the job on job boards and social media and advertising the job locally
  • Culling through applications, many of which will be irrelevant, to find the most qualified bookkeepers for your company
  • Interviewing applicants
  • Conducting background checks
  • Finding desk space and equipping it
  • Negotiating and hiring the bookkeeper
Hiring at ShoreAgents in the Philippines
If that list seems overwhelming, you’re not alone. Hiring involves a lot of time-consuming details. Also, consider that finding a bookkeeper who also has real estate knowledge might be very difficult.
A better option is to partner with ShoreAgents.

  • Helping you develop your job description
  • Recruiting a candidate through advertising and through our vast network
  • Culling through applications to provide you with candidates to interview
  • Providing a spacious, modern office where the property accountant works with others in similar roles for other companies.
  • Equipping the bookkeeper for success with a desk, computer, WebCam, and headphones
  • Sharing our knowledge of the real estate business through our founder and day-to-day director, Stephen Atcheler.
  • Training the bookkeeper in real estate, if they don’t already have real estate experience
  • A location in the Philippines. Outsourcing to the Philippines is a smart option because
  • The labor costs are lower in the Philippines. This means that you can hire at least two bookkeepers for the price of one local property bookkeeper.
  • The country offers a highly skilled and well-educated workforce of more than 45 million people.
  • Filipinos speak fluent English and are eager to work with foreign companies.
  • Filipino culture is similar to European-influenced cultures, such as Britain, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and Canada.
