Handling Floats on Arthur

*Please use the Property Owner Remittance – Batch Remit to access this feature*

What is a Float?

An amount of money some management companies/agents withhold from the rent collected for their landlords in order to deal with unforeseen property expenses or repairs.

How do I take a Float?

When remitting to the owner you are given the option to deduct a float from the upcoming landlord remittance. To begin this process. Go To Financial > Property Owner Remittance. From here you can either “Select transaction and remit” or “Batch Remit” – They will both give you the option to withhold a float.

Select Transactions and Remit screen

How do I use the Float?

On Arthur your Float is held on it’s own statement “Property Owner Float Statement”. It will remain on this statement as credit until you are ready to allocate it to a bill or refund it back to the owner.

To use the money on your float against contractor charges instead of deducting money from remittance.

Create “Disbursement Charge against Float Statement” then allocate the outstanding credit to this charge.

Refunding the Float

How do I Refund the Float?

When you are ready to remit again input a negative amount of the outstanding float in the “Float Adjustment” field

How do I Refund the Float when I have no Rent to Pay my Owner?

Note: This can’t be done using the batch remit feature

Sometimes Property managers may want to return a float to an Owner when there is currently no rent to be paid over.

Go To Financial > Property Owner Remittance
