Arthur’s mission (how we will fulfil our “why”)

“We are here to help property managers make the most of the latest technology. We are able to do this by ruthlessly prioritising our work to create simple intuitive technology – all while delivering customer support that is second to none.”


Step 1 – Business type

Identifying your management type in Arthur’s ‘Financials’ is a fundamental step to ensure that your set up reflects your business.  This is especially important if you intend to integrate with cloud accounting software later on.

Is Direct Rent or Rent Charge the appropriate rent collection type for your business?

Q: Whats the difference?

A: Direct rent is used by those that self manage i.e collecting the rent for themselves. Rent charge is used by those who manage on behalf of 3rd parties e.g agencies who deduct fees from the rent before passing it on.

Some Arthur clients are a mixture of both so we suggest setting your default position to the most common management type. To see how you would set your default position, click here.

Step 2 – Add property and units

When adding a property in Arthur, you are creating the asset which contains your rent-able unit.

You will either be adding a:

  1. Property containing one single unit e.g House, single flat in a block
  2. Property containing  multiple units. e.g HMO, Block of flat
