Using business models: Checklist

Accounting by Guesty is a premium feature. Please contact us to discuss activating it.

Create business models in Guesty to set up revenue share agreements with your owners. Define how each fee is calculated and shared between your business, owner, or vendor. Guesty will automatically calculate the figures for you.

Read the checklist or watch our video below before creating a business model.



Once a business model is saved, it can no longer be edited. Set up the items below before creating a business model.

Set up your business model to reflect the agreement between you and the owner. For example, if you agree to share the cleaning fee, include it in the formula for the net rental income calculation.

On the other hand, if the cleaning fee is calculated according to a different ratio between you and the owner, list it as part of the trust account income and define the commission division separately. The setup of these commissions will be automatically reflected in calculations for the owner statement.
