How to Change the Recognized Date for Future Bookings in Clearing

In the world of property management, keeping accurate financial records for future bookings can be a perplexing challenge. When revenue payouts from Stripe hit the bank account, these transactions are automatically recognized based on that date, creating confusion for property managers and owners alike. Imagine receiving payment today for a reservation scheduled months ahead; this misalignment between payout and booking date can puzzle both managers and homeowners who receive periodic homeowner statements. The default recognition process doesn't always align with the booking date, making accurate accounting a puzzle. This is where Clearing steps in as the solution to this challenge by empowering users to easily adjust the recognized date of these transactions and account for revenue in the month of the actual booking.

Clearing, a leading platform in property management, has introduced a user-friendly feature that allows property managers to adjust the recognized date associated with their accounting transactions. This feature ensures that revenue is accounted for in the specific month of the reservation, aligning financial records with booking dates and ensuring accurate accounting for future bookings**.** With automated bookkeeping and recognizing transaction capabilities**,** Clearing simplifies reconciliation of financial transactions allowing property managers to confidently close their books.
