Course Description
A property manager needs to maintain the accounting records for a number of property owners, which calls for a unique chart of accounts, journal entries that pertain to specific property transactions, and periodic reports that convey the financial essentials to owners. Property Management Accounting addresses these topics and more, giving the accountant a firm grounding in how to deal with any property-related accounting issue that may arise.
