This fast paced seminar with Sue Haviland will focus on conducting audits at self storage facilities with an emphasis on theft and embezzlement detection.  The seminar is designed for self storage owners, property managers, accounting staff and CPA's that want to become familiar with the intricacies of storage auditing, cash control strategies and embezzlement detection methods. Lunch will be available so come hungry!

 This all day course will focus on the step-by-step procedures for conducting an in depth, detailed financial and managerial audit of storage facilities. This class will include a manual with all necessary forms.

Here are just a few of the items covered during this fascinating look at self storage auditing:

  • Learn the 20 revealing danger signals that all auditors must know.
  • Discover the embezzlement techniques that will astound you; credit transfers, "The Plastic Bonus", past posting, kiting, lapping, laundering, churning, bartering, reversals, rent shading, concurrent books, cash soliciting, pre-existing tenants, fake receipts and many more.
  • Hear about what every owner must do to prevent spybots, highjackers, key stroke loggers, adware, viruses and other data mining programs from invading your business and creating havoc.
  • Receive sample forms to control write off's discounts, free merchandise, rate changes, free months promotions, fee waivers, and much, much more.
  • Find out why an audit must be conducted in a step-by-step way, lest you overlook key danger signals that will amaze you.
  • Learn about the common rental agreement problems, what they mean and how to document them.
  • "Mystery Tenants" the most common embezzlement technique.  Hear the things almost every auditor overlooks when conducting inventories.
  • Management reports tell the whole story.  Learn how to monitor the management reports and spot problems well before they become theft.
  • Managers delay the close out, what does that mean?  Find out these and many other puzzling behaviors that spell T-R-O-U-B-L-E.
  • Stealing checks and credit card payments are easy, find out why and what you can do to prevent it.
  • Identity theft is better than cash, learn what you must do to prevent credit card fraud.
  • Your biggest threat is not theft, it is poor supervision.  Discover where the problems are by following a simple, step-by-step analysis of your operations.
  • 70% of all lien files have problems so severe that if you were sued, YOU WOULD LOSE!  Hear how to prevent problems before the sale.
  • Think your policies are being followed, think again!  The seminar material provided will give you a comprehensive listing of policies that you must use.
  • Your rental agreement, your software and your procedures are not congruent.  Find out why and what you MUST DO NOW to change it.
  • Discover what you MUST do when you hire new employees.  Negligent supervision lawsuits are on the rise.  Don't become a victim; hear how easy it is to screen your next employee.
  • Some times of year are more vulnerable than others.  Discover when and how most problems start.
  • Learn how to create that all important "atmosphere of deterrence" without spending hours sifting through reports.  It's easier than you think!
