Transcription of the Subtitles

Here is how you give a tenant a free month.

Go to the “Accounting” tab and the “Collections” subtab.

Click on “Invoicing” in the upper right corner.

Make sure that the invoice is assigned to the right property and unit, but tick “Lease.”

Select the “Discount” account, which is “4700 – Discount.”

Enter a description of the discount, such as “April 2022 free.”

Enter the rent under “Unit price.”

Select the first day, or another day depending on when this tenant pays their rent, of the free month. In this case, April is the free month, so I will select April 1st.

Click on “Finish.” Click on the three lines in the upper left corner.

The tenant’s balance for the free month should be at zero, so you do not need to do anything else.
