Bank Statement Filing

Macquarie Bank provides a bulk statement file to be downloaded from their website for both Operating and Investment accounts. At month end you are able to save this statement file and STRATA Master will split and file the bank statements in the Document Register / fileSMART for each Owners Corporation.

Configuration Steps

  1. Contact Macquarie Bank – the bank need to set up the monthly statement files for each facility. (Trading Accounts and Investment Accounts). The bulk statement file needs to be ‘bookmarked’ with the bank account numbers, rather than Account Name or Plan #. (A bookmark is the index for a PDF file)
  2. In Windows  – Create the following folders:

In the Strata Folder on the server create a new folder:

  • BankStatements

Within this folder create two new folders:

  • Processed
  • SplitFiles

 these folder names cannot contain spaces.

  1. In STRATA Master:

Configure:     Bank Statement Filing

Set the correct file path for both options – see below

  1. Log onto:     Macquarie Bank
