How to Manage Your Trust Account During Annual Leave

Even when key members of your team are out soaking up the sun on their well-deserved annual leave, the wheels must keep turning.

This is especially true for the linchpin of real estate operations: trust accounting. If you're like many property management agencies, your in-house trust accountant or senior property manager plays an important role in keeping this complex system ticking.

But what happens when they're away? Let's dive into some solutions to ensure your trust account remains compliant and organised, even when your key players are off the grid.

The Challenge of Annual Leave

Annual leave is a time for rest and rejuvenation, but for many in the property management sector, the thought of leaving the trust account unattended is anything but relaxing. Not to mention, risky.

Traditional approaches, such as handing over responsibilities to another team member or splitting duties among staff, come with their own set of complications. After all, trust accounting isn't just any task; it's a daily, detail-oriented job that requires a deep understanding of compliance regulations. Sharing this responsibility can lead to inconsistencies and errors.

The risk? Compromised compliance and the potential for an out-of-balance trust account, and the consequences that follow.
