Accounting by Guesty is a premium feature available to Pro users only. Please contact us to discuss activating it.

Important:

If transactions are locked because the accounting period ended, only account admins and account managers can add transactions.

A transaction is a business event that has a monetary impact on your company's financial statements. Guesty has created five types of transactions that you are likely to use in your business:

  • Owner charge
  • Folio transfer
  • Payment from owner
  • Expense
  • Debit/credit
They are predefined with whom to debit/credit - the owner, vendor, or PMC - and which account they should appear in. A transaction can be added in three places in Guesty. See instructions on how to add a transaction in each place below.

Important:

You need to activate Accounting by Guesty and set up your business models to be able to add transactions.
