Question about organization
Hi all
I'm the vendor, and I have a builder that builds all my homes. He takes his percentage and we're both happy.

He pays all the vendors and then bills me, plus his rate. Problem is that he doesn't have a bookkeeper of his own so he's extremely disorganized, he sometimes double bills me, and I'm worried because we are going from building one house at a time, to building 3 or 4 at a time. My own bookkeeper has been working extra hours (that i pay her for) to help as well as making sure to catch any potential mistakes. I can't force him to hire someone.

Is there a better way to manage my scenario? Do I insist he uses my credit cards and my cheques to pay the vendors? help

If this guy has a problem doing 1 home at a time then yes I can only assume that it will be much worse with multiple homes.

Is he a builder? A consultant?
Who holds the Tarion registration?
Why is he paying the trades?
It would make more sense for all bills to go to you and then you pay him based on that.
Otherwise force POs on him to keep track of everything. No approved purchase order, no payment.

You're absolutely right. I appreciate it.
