QB Issue Resolution:

If I’m understanding your question you are saying a Realtor is being paid to bring you tenants and the Realtor get a fee equaling 1 month rent plus $199.00. If this is correct try this…I’m using $500.00 a month as an example:

First please understand that a Security Deposit is not Rent and should not be recorded as such. It’s a Liability and should be held in an escrow account until the tenant moves, at which time you take out anything you may be owed…like damages, etc.

Your Tenant should be in the Books as a “Customer”. You should have ‘Items” set up to handle your Tenant Charges as such:

1. Rental Income

2. Security Deposit (This is a Liability not Rent. You have to hold on to this until tenant moves)

3. Realtor Expense

You create the Invoice and post $500.00 to Security Deposit Item and $1000.00 to Rent Item

The Realtor deducts his fees ($699) and gives you $801.00 ($1500 -$500 -$199)

You use Receive Payment Menu enter $801.00 (That’s what you have to Deposit)

Give the Tenant Credit for the amount the Realtor took:

Go to Customer, Create Credit Memo/Refund

Enter $699.00 Under “Item” select “Realtor Expense”

Click Save…a box will pop up…select “Apply to Invoice” and click “OK”
