How to Split Transactions to Enhance Bookkeeping Accuracy in Clearing

In the realm of property management, accurately managing financial transactions that involve bulk payments with line items belonging to multiple properties can be a daunting task. Often, a single transaction through a credit card includes purchases for different properties, leading to challenges in allocating each expense line item to distinct categories or properties.

Recently, Clearing introduced the Split Transactions feature to address these challenges, empowering users to efficiently split a transaction and allocate specific expenses to individual properties or categories. This ensures accurate books per listing and simplifies financial operations throughout the reconciliation process. With automated transaction management and the ability to split expenses between properties, Clearing enhances financial visibility and empowers the users to split an expense and reconcile it into different accounts more accurately.

Simple Steps to Split Transactions in Clearing

Step 1: Access the Transactions Section in Clearing

Log in to your Clearing account and navigate to the "Transactions" section in the side menu.

Step 2: Initiate the Splitting Process

In the Transaction management interface, choose the financial transaction that you want to split, whether it's a revenue or an expense transaction. Click on the “three dots” button located on the right side of the selected financial transaction.

Clicking on the “three dots” button will take you to the "Transaction Details" page, where you can click on the "Split Transaction" option to initiate the splitting process.

Step 3: Allocate Expenses to Specific Properties or Transactions

Once you have clicked on "Split Transaction” link, you'll be presented with a screen where you can enter the desired allocation amounts for each specific property asset or category. The platform will automatically calculate the remaining balance to be allocated, ensuring precise expense distribution.

You can continue adding transactions by clicking the “Add another Transaction” option until the remaining balance reaches zero, indicating that the transaction has been fully allocated.

Step 4: Review and Submit

Once you have allocated expenses for all relevant properties or categories, review the details to ensure accuracy. If everything looks correct, click the "Submit" button. The platform will create new individual transactions with the allocated expense amounts for each property or category, as you have specified.
