ACCOUNTING / ACCOUNTING PLUS MANAGEMENT PLANS
Description and Features
AMS works as partners with your board of directors and homeowners to preserve and protect the community and take care of the details that go into maintaining the value of your investment.
The Accounting/Accounting Plus HOA Management Plan is designed for HOA community management that only requires accounts payable, accounts receivable and financial reporting services. It's the most cost-effective financial management program for any size or type of homeowner/condo association. No long-term contracts are required (6-month initial term, followed by a month-to-month agreement). This helps control costs for your HOA and eliminates services that you may not use or need.
Below is an overview of typical services we provide under this plan. Other services are available at an hourly rate or by purchasing a consulting package. Services can be customized to the unique needs of your community.
