Room Rent Charges are applied automatically during the Night Audit Process for each booking. Room Rent can be entered manually, but should not be necessary unless there are special circumstances. It is important to note that manually entering Room Rent will take the place of the automatic charge during Night Audit so that Room Rent won't be charged twice for one night. See Manual Room Rent
After the folios have been charged and Night Audit complete, an email summary will be sent to the Email address entered SETUP | SETTINGS | SITE DETAILS. See Site Details
