Creating a Custom Analysis Code for a Contractor Bill (not recharged to Owner/Tenant)

If you would like to run the expenses of your property/units through Arthur you will need to create a contractor bill transaction type. This is a direct expense from your company to the contractor (You can make as many different expenses/bills as you please). This is not in conjunction with disbursements/recharging an Owner for bills you pay on their behalf.  

Note: This article is for creating bills that you are paying direct to a contractor and NOT recharging to an Owner. Only ONE transaction (a bill) will be created.

Creating your Contractor Bill

You will need to create your bespoke transaction type.

Step 1 – Create your receipt

Transaction Type Name: Payment made to Contractor

Must be a Receipt-Credit


Step 2 – Create your Bill

Using your Contractor Bill
