It would be great if there was an option to automatically add an expense, for example on monthly basis. Thank you!

Not exactly quite yet, but we did add something helpful - you can now import expenses using an Excel template. This way, you can more easily create/copy (say) a year's worth of routine expenses in Excel using Excel fill tools, and import them into OwnerRez at one go, saving a great deal of time.

The import expense options is a great help in the interim... and I'm looking forward to the ability to add recurring expenses!

I am just setting up my account and was searching for how to do this. Such a shame it isn't there already. I need to set up a recurring charge to cover the changeover clean after each booking. We employ our own cleaners so need to take this expense from the owner statement and pay it to ourselves for each booking. We have the ability to do this in our current system, and this is the first thing I've found that OR falls short compared to our current PMS :(

The functionality to charge on owner statement is there, automatically with each booking. It is set up in "Settings", then "Pricing", then surcharges and discounts, then "create a surcharge or discount", select surcharge from drop down, then you have to do some work at that point to establish if you want it on the statement, how much you want to charge the guests, what properties you want this charge to hit, etc.

I just came here to request this as well. I would love to set up all my monthly charges as recurring. Even just an option to duplicate a past expense would be helpful!

Yes!!! such as landscaping fees that are the same every month.

Yes please, we have many reoccurring monthly expenses that we need to pass on to owners. Having this feature would be such a big help.
We would also like to be able to charge expenses directly to the Guest through the Expenses tab under Bookings. This would allow us to charge guests for extra services like additional cleaning, grocery delivery etc. Or in the case of long term renters, we could charge cable and internet and other utilities that are consistent month to month.

Hello! We're currently working on a lot of groundwork to make this possible, which will be released in the new year. Automatic (or recurring) Expenses is on the roadmap for 2023, probably in Q2 or Q3.

Yes, this can also maybe solve the VRBO Host fee issue as well if it lets us apply a 5% FEE to all VRBO bookings for each owner.
