What can Accounting & General do for your hotel business?

A hotel is at the heart of the hospitality industry. Like a pub or restaurant there is provision of food and drink. Then add in accommodation, which has different dynamics – a timeline that looks out further to the future in terms of forward marketing and booking. And a property which probably has a higher capital value and different taxation issues.

We support clients in running all aspects of their hotel – with as little or much involvement as requested.

  • Tailored spreadsheets for either annual, quarterly or monthly accounts, Vat or not Vat registered. These give detailed operating statistics for your business. (Manual records still catered for.)
  • Quarterly Vat returns.
  • Weekly or monthly payroll, including auto-enrolment pension administration.
  • Annual accounts including Companies House filing.
  • Income Tax or Corporation Tax.
  • Support on specialist issues:
    – Administering employee tips – the tronc.
    – Calculation of holiday pay for casual seasonal employees.
    – Advice on taxation opportunities with fixed plant and integral features – Capital Allowances.
  • Commentary on the commercial performance of your hotel, with input of advice for improvement.
  • Advice with a financial angle on all aspects of your hotel. This includes your reservations system, running your forward bookings and the statistics that help you do so.
