I have just purchased a 2-unit (duplex) in Washington State, US, and I need a bookkeeper to manage the books for this project. The duplex will be undergoing about 6 months of reconstruction and then at that point will be rented out utilizing a property management company to handle the day-to-day work. I need someone who is familiar with how to properly account for the purchase of the property, and its associated costs (tax, title, underwriting fees, etc.), the construction costs, and finally ongoing costs such as utility, property taxes, and depreciation, and the rental income. I will need to be able to produce a P/L statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement for my own benefit as well as my accountant. My estimate is that there will be less than a 5 hour time commitment per week in order to accomplish this.
Since this is a brand new project, I am open to considering the bookkeeping software, such as QuickBooks, FreshBooks, Xero, etc.
I will need to verbally describe ideas about the project so you must have good communication skills in English and be OK with some ambiguity at the beginning of the project.
