Expenses refer to all expenses created for a booking, property or unit. When they are set in booking page or Finances->Expenses, they will be reflected in Monthly Profit Report and can be posted to Xero.
In Settings-> Finance -> Expenses Type, you can click on Create Expenses Type button on the top right of the page to create new types.
- In the opened page, choose a name for the expense type you are creating.
- Set an appropriate Deal Element. It is highly recommended that you set Expenses for the Deal Element option. For advanced settings to split expenses between host and investors, admins can create new Deal Elements in Settings->Deal Elements. Yet, we suggest that for regular use, you set Expenses.
- To be able to post the expenses to Xero, there should exist an account for that expense type. In Settings-> Accounting Schema, there is a default account number set for the expenses. Yet, when you are creating a new expense type, you can choose a different account and override the default account set for the expenses.
In Finances ->Expenses, you can click on Create Expense button on the top right of the page to create new expenses.
