Segregation of Funds

Trace’s new Segregation of Funds functionality was demonstrated to clients at a Breakfast Briefing held on Pancake Day 2020.

After a delicious breakfast of freshly made pancakes, a record number of attendees were shown new functionality that meets the requirements of the RICS Professional Statement “Client Money Handling”, dated October 2019.

This specifies that all RICS-regulated firms must use each individual client’s money only for that client’s affairs.

Segregation of Funds in Trace property management software allows the user to:-

  • identify service charge funds by individual schedule
  • perform funds tests at schedule level
  • set up sinking funds for individual projects
  • provide a service charge apportionment matrix to all tenants (as mandated by the RICS Professional Statement from September 2018, “Service Charges in Commercial Property”)

Segregation of Funds is a significant piece of functionality that took some 200 man-days to develop. It is included free of charge in our most recent PM&A release, 5.90.00.

The Briefing also included a sneak preview of the forthcoming Mojo Supplier App; details of Mojo invoice approval; and other already-released Mojo enhancements and features.
