Fees and Levies

Is the financial year of my Owners Corporation the same as the Australian financial year?

The financial year of your Owners Corporation is a function of when the original Plan of Subdivision was registered and therefore may or may not align with the Australian financial year. If in doubt, please contact us on (03) 9534 4614

What is the difference between an admin and maintenance fund?

Admin Fund – covers day to day expenses associated with the property (e.g. insurance, electricity, caretaker, water etc).
Maintenance Fund – covers planned or unplanned capital improvements and big-ticket maintenance items (e.g. repainting the building or replacing a lift). The Maintenance Fund of an owners corporation must be used in conjunction with an agreed Maintenance Plan.

How do I find out my account balance?

For most buildings, we have an online portal where you can log on to check the balance of your account. You should have received login details for the portal following settlement.

If you have misplaced or did not receive a login please contact us at ownerdetails@tideways.com.au and we will resend your login details.
