Over time as you capture records about your portfolio, you'll get reminders about important actions and useful insights into your portfolio finances.

Portfolio dashboard

The dashboard provides you with an at a glance view of your portfolio. From here you'll see and can explore a high level view of your portfolio finances and see important reminders and take action.

Expenses

The Expenses screen allows you to record portfolio related expenses paid using personal money and travel related to your portfolio management when the journey was undertaken in a personal vehicle.

Expenses recorded here can then be reimbursed from your portfolio account to you or another person.

Any expenses paid direct from your portfolio specific bank accounts are not recorded here. They are entered in your bookkeeping screen.

Properties & tenancies

This is where you'll make a start with your records in Provestor.

Your Account Manager will let you know when your first property has been added then from there you will be able to add tenancy details.

This important step will save you time as details for properties are used throughout the software for tracking so you don’t need to keep re-entering the same information.

Rent

You will use the invoicing screen to create and manage invoices for your tenants.

By setting up a tenancy agreement, your invoice will be pre-populated with your tenant’s details and with a few clicks your invoice will be ready to send. You can email your invoice direct to your tenant from the invoicing area.
