VRBO payments made vs received

I just realized while working Quickbooks that the very nice payment detail report isn't too useful, because it shows the date the guest paid VRBO but not the date the payment arrived in my account.

Is there any possibility of having OR become aware of the date that Homeaway initiates the deposit to my bank? That's the date that I really care about with regard to accounting and payment of taxes.

I'm considering not tracking guest payments per property in Quickbooks, but that means giving up on ever really knowing the long term profit/loss because QB is where expenses are tracked.

(update)
I found a report on VRBO which when downloaded lists all payments made to my account. The amounts are frequently different, due to (i believe) the security deposit and adjustments made to fees after it's returned. Question - Is there any way for the payment report in OR to include the booking ID from VRBO? eg: HA-GSPQ1Y That's the only booking ID that VRBO includes in the report.

How are you populating the data into OwnerRez?

If you use our channel bridge tool it will record the dates of payments made to you vs. by the guest, and it will also track the payment fees and other things taken out of the payments.

I am using Channel Bridge. I'm not seeing any dates related to when VRBO pays me .... I'll dig deeper, but the payment report seemed to only show the date the guest paid VRBO

I took a second look at this and it may depend on your payout schedule with VRBO.

What report inside VRBO is showing the actual disbursement dates to you? I'll have a look and see if we can pick up that data as well.

In VRBO
- Reservation Manager
- Payout Summary
- download spreadsheet

While displayed report shows summarized payout totals, the spreadsheet shows detail by payment.
