Contracts with move-out and move-in on the same day

Until now, contracts could only start when the previous contract had expired. This brought complications for tenancies that change on the same day, e.g. on the 15th of a month. Now the contracts can overlap by 1 day, so that move-out and move-in are possible on the same day.

Rent calculation for newly created tenancy agreements

When a new tenancy agreement is created, a payment slip or a first rent invoice is often required so that the tenant already receives the payment information for the rent with the agreement. So that a debit position does not have to be triggered each time, the first customer invoice for the contract can now be created directly after the contract has been created. The newly created symbol for contracts can be used for this purpose. It appears for all contracts that do not yet have a customer invoice for the month of the contract start.

Updates to the automatic debit position

The automatic debit position has been adjusted so that it:
  • the payment modes quarterly, semi-annually and annually are taken into account in the debit position
  • invoices are not created twice when a debit position is triggered again

The debit position table now also shows how many invoices were created in the executed debit position

Example 1: Contract with quarterly debit position

Object name: 133

Contract start: 1 January 2019

Debit: Quarterly (i.e. an invoice is sent only every 3 months)

The existing contract was freshly entered, after which a debit position is triggered for the months of June and July for all active contracts. With the new adjustment, this means for object 133:

  • Debit position June 2021: No invoice is created (contract start is January, therefore invoices are only created in the months January, April, July, October).
  • Debit position July 2021: The first invoice is issued

Now, debit positions will also be triggered retroactively for the months of January 2021 to May 2021:

  • Invoices will be issued for object 133 for January and April 2021

Example 2: Debit positions again the same month

A debit position for 10 active contracts was already triggered for the month of July 2021. Only then does it become apparent that invoices were created for a contract (no. 12) that already expired in June because the tenant move-out was not recorded.

Contract no. 12 is therefore terminated retrospectively at the end of June (via Processes > Start Tenant Move-Out). A new contract no. 13 with a start date of 1 July 2021 is then entered.

The invoices for contract no. 12 created by the debit position for July 2021 are deleted manually (under Debtors). A new debit position for July 2021 is then triggered:

  • Only contracts that have been newly added since the last debit position are affected by the debit position (in this case contract no. 13).

Updates to the automatic debit position

The automatic debit position has been adjusted so that it:
  • the payment modes quarterly, semi-annually and annually are taken into account in the debit position
  • invoices are not created twice when a debit position is triggered again

The debit position table now also shows how many invoices were created in the executed debit position

Example 1: Contract with quarterly debit position

Object name: 133

Contract start: 1 January 2019

Debit: Quarterly (i.e. an invoice is sent only every 3 months)

The existing contract was freshly entered, after which a debit position is triggered for the months of June and July for all active contracts. With the new adjustment, this means for object 133:

  • Debit position June 2021: No invoice is created (contract start is January, therefore invoices are only created in the months January, April, July, October).
  • Debit position July 2021: The first invoice is issued

Now, debit positions will also be triggered retroactively for the months of January 2021 to May 2021:

  • Invoices will be issued for object 133 for January and April 2021

Example 2: Debit positions again the same month

A debit position for 10 active contracts was already triggered for the month of July 2021. Only then does it become apparent that invoices were created for a contract (no. 12) that already expired in June because the tenant move-out was not recorded.

Contract no. 12 is therefore terminated retrospectively at the end of June (via Processes > Start Tenant Move-Out). A new contract no. 13 with a start date of 1 July 2021 is then entered.

The invoices for contract no. 12 created by the debit position for July 2021 are deleted manually (under Debtors). A new debit position for July 2021 is then triggered:

  • Only contracts that have been newly added since the last debit position are affected by the debit position (in this case contract no. 13).

The meter readings and distribution keys were always saved correctly in the service charge settlement. However, we noticed that when creating a new distribution, the data from the last settlement was not transferred correctly and the old meter readings and distribution keys had to be entered again. This has been fixed and the last meter readings and distribution keys are now used as the starting point for the new distribution.
