Levy Notice Template Format in Strata Master
The Levy Notice Template is hardcoded in Strata master, however there are some changes that be made through selections made in Strata Master.
By having the Template hard coded it ensures that every Levy Notice issued from Strata Master will have a minimum of information in a standard format and therefore be clear, familiar and well known by Strata Managers, Lot Owners and Strata Master Support staff and other stakeholders such as debt recovery agents.
Hard coding also ensures that any Legislation regarding invoices or levy notices is complied.
