The Furnished Holiday Lettings (FHL) regulations and the new Business Rates system mean property owners will have to prove that the property is available for holiday letting 140 days in a financial year and is let for a minimum of 105 days in that year.
How Can I Do This? Easy ...
Beilby Computing’s Bookings software maintains a database of guests, bookings, seasons and rates to ease the burden of running your property. It also produces reports on the guests and bookings for your use, your accountant and if necessary for HMRC proof. It will also produce the documentation to be sent to guests tailored for your property.
Bookings posts to Sage accounting software: posting the booking values for you, preventing the possibility of errors and duplicate postings. Costs and additional charges can be analysed to different nominal ledger accounts as you require.
Bookings is easy to use and holds all the data you need about guests, their bookings, source of the guest to get the best valve for money out of your advertising budget, the seasons you operate and the rate for each season. The data is encrypted to prevent sensitive data being viewable by unauthorised parties. Bookings is based upon the high performance Advantage Database Server software and runs on stand-alone and networked platforms. The client/server variant features data integrity and transaction processing for increased data protection.
Bookings is Windows based, runs on your computer and can be tailored to your requirements and needs. It is not an Internet (cloud) based program, so the data are private to you and for your sole use. Bookings will run on most Windows desktop and notebook computer configurations. NB: the data are encrypted to protect it and your interest against prying eyes
There are two pricing structures for Bookings: full purchase of a licence for a one-off fee or annual rental of the software. Note: the full client/server version of the Advantage Database Server is not included in this pricing scheme. The one-off price for Bookings starts at £149.00 + VAT. The annual rental scheme starts at £50.00 + VAT. The annual scheme entitles you to e-mail support and free program updates. The client/server Advantage Database Server for networking is extra: please ask for pricing.
