Vuokrahelppi monitors for you that the rent is paid on time and, if necessary, sends a free payment reminder to the tenant and informs you as well. Best of all, Vuokrahelppi monitors payments directly from your own account without having to cash out on any customer funds accounts.
Vuokrahelppi can send payment reminders for you. You can also download a PDFs of the rental invoices and reminders. The late payment reminders include an accurate calculation of outstanding rents and expenses.
Vuokrahelppi can also calculate the tedious late payment interests automatically and include the interests in the next month's rental invoice to the tenant. You can easily find out that using Vuokrahelppi is not only cheap but can actually make money for you too.
In addition to managing rental properties, you can easily post expenses related to the rental property, such as a new refrigerator. You can also easily post recurring costs to the service, such as monthly maintenance fees. You can always print an accurate income statement that also takes into account the expenses you post. You will also store receipts in the system.
Vuokrahelppi has been built on years of experience in the development of banking systems. The service has been used in real rental properties and money transactions for years.
The new version of Vuokrahelppi utilizes open banking interfaces that allow the service to automatically and securely read your bank account transactions into the Vuokrahelppi system. Note that it is not possible to transfer money using the interfaces used by Vuokrahelppi.
Vuokrahelppi allows you to track rentals directly from your own account without having to provide the tenant with a new account number or reference number.
You can see the current rent situation at a glance, and at the same time the latest transactions in your bank account*. You can also easily record rent payments manually from account transactions if, for example, the tenant has accidentally paid the rent without a reference number and with the wrong amount. The service can also match payments by name and amount, using the reference number is optional.
By default, the bank authentication is valid for 90 days. You can also disconnect from your bank at any time from the My Profile menu.
After establishing the bank connection, there is only one task left: Adding the tracked rental receivable to the system. This can be done from the Invoices view. Don't let the term "Invoices" confuse you, if you just want to monitor rent payments without the tenant receiving an invoice by e-mail, that's also easy to do, just choose to turn off invoice sending when creating the invoice. You can also mark the invoice to repeat automatically once a month, which ensures that payment monitoring continues as long as you want. If your tenant has used a reference number to pay rent, you can use the same reference number here, so from the tenant's point of view, nothing changes when paying the rent. The use of the reference number is voluntary, the system can also record payments based on the amount and the tenant's name.
The service can update both the tenant register and the rental property register automatically, so creating an invoice (whether it is sent or not) is really the only thing you have to do manually in the service.
You can easily record both recurring and non-recurring expenses in the service. When generating a profit / loss report, the service also takes into account the deduction method selected for each expense. The system supports the Tax Administration's requirements for cost deduction. You can also save receipts of the expenses in the system just in case you need them later.
