In-House Accounting Department
Our in-house accounting department is an integral part of our New Smyrna property management team. Most rental management companies have their accounting and bookkeeping departments located offsite, which can be time consuming in finalizing certain accounting needs. Ocean Properties Vacation Rentals, Inc. handles all aspects of the accounting from the moment a guest pays for their reservation to the time we provide each owner with a monthly statement along with their rental revenue. This includes paying and reporting State of Florida and County of Volusia sales tax on your guests’ reservations. Our Accounting Department also provides the service of bill pay. If any repairs or maintenance is done in your rental unit, we will handle paying the vendors and do so by tracking it on your monthly owner statement. We also pay for the housekeeping services for your guests as well as when an owner stays in their unit. At the end of each year, we provide each owner with a detailed year-end accounting statement along with a reservation recap of the activity in your rental property.
Ocean Properties Advantage
We strive to treat each guest and owner like part of our family. We have assembled a highly professional and knowledgeable team to ensure that owners and guests alike receive the exemplary customer service they deserve. We protect your investment while maximizing revenue. We can’t wait for you to be part of our family!
