Adding a Manual Account

Adding a Manual Account

A Manual Account is simply a bank, loan, or credit card account in REI Hub that is not electronically linked to the financial institution for transaction import.  To set up an account that IS linked for transaction import- click here.

Adding checking, savings, and credit card accounts- whether they are set up as Manual or Linked- allows you to see how funds flow through your rental business.  If you choose not to set up a bank account, you can still book transactions to the default Owner Funds Account.

2)  Click the 'Add Account' Button and select Manual Account

3)  Select the Account Type

4) Give the Account a name

5) Optionally assign a default Property

6) Save your new account.  View it on the Banking Page
