There are a lot of misconceptions about what you can expect from your Body Corporate Manager (also known as a Strata Manager) and what duties and decisions fall under the responsibility of the Body Corporate versus the Body Corporate Manager.


A body corporate manager for a scheme is a person or business who provides administrative services to a Body Corporate as per the Administration Agreement that is entered into with the Body Corporate.

If a body corporate has elected a committee, the body corporate manager is engaged to help them. The manager can only act under the instructions of the Body Corporate.

A manager includes their personal representatives, successors and assignees.

A Body Corporate Manager assists the owners with secretarial, financial and administrative duties including:

  • Convening and attending an Annual General Meeting
  • Calling nominations for the position of executive and ordinary members of the Committee
  • Preparing and distributing meeting notices
  • Recording and distributing minutes
  • Answering communications and correspondence
  • Operating the Body Corporate’s bank account
  • Preparing financial statements and budgets
  • Issuing and Receipting Owner Contributions
  • Payment of accounts
  • Maintaining the roll
  • Implementing decisions of the Body Corporate
  • Making available records for inspection
