Occasionally certain jobs will require a contractor to request a deposit before the work starts, or progress payments (or both). A contractor can request these conditions through their quotes on SMATA.
A Strata Manager's role in approving quotes and invoices are the same as usual:
- Strata Manager can send a quote for committee approval, or approve themselves
- Strata Manager can either accept or reject an invoice that has come to them for approval
To see the history of quotes and invoices (submitted, approved, rejected, paid)
1. Log in to SMATA
2. Go to the Jobs page (Wrench Icon)
3. Click on the relevant job
4. Click on 'History'
In cases like this that will need more than one invoice to be paid, Strata Managers will be prompted as usual when a quote or invoice has been sent to them to approve. The only main difference in this process is that a job doesn't close until the final payment to the contractor is made.
Every time the accounts team pays the contractor, they will be sent an email and the Strata Manager will be notified about the payment on SMATA.
