Calculating the Data Required by the General Lease Report

The Victorian General Lease report recently changed from a monthly report to a 6 monthly report. As a result, you will need to ensure that you calculate the entire period you want to report on from 1 single Occupancy Calculation, so that you can select the entire period when you are ready to create the report.  

To do this, open the Reports and Exports menu, click Occupancy Calculation, and enter the calculation start date as the first date of the reporting period (EG 01/01/2022) and the Calculation End Date as the last date of the reporting period (EG 30/06/2022).

Click Calculate. 

The calculation is will run and when it's completed, you can use the calculation to populate the report. 

Running the General Lease Financial Report

To access the General Lease Financial Report, from the Home Screen, click Reports and Exports, then Vic Reports, and General Lease Financial Report Reporting.


On the left hand side of the screen you will see the previous calculations of Room Status's completed in Chintaro.  This is important - you cannot complete the General Lease report without having previously run the occupancy calculation for the period you wish to report on. 

On the right hand side of the screen you will see the report criteria.

To create a report, you must select the reporting period you wish to report on from the calculations in the table on the left hand side of the screen. Select the 6 monthly calculation from the list of existing available calculations on the left-hand side of the screen so that the dates are populated correctly on the right-hand side of the screen:
