What can Accounting & General do for your restaurant business?

Financial control cannot be an afterthought in a restaurant. With poor control over cash, it will disappear. With poor control of your food margin, drinks margin and wages percentage, a profit simply will not be made.

Running a restaurant is an unforgiving business. With so much competition why should customers beat a path to your door? You need to know why and have confidence you are right and relentlessly deliver the product and communicate the message.

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

  • Quarterly Vat returns.
  • Weekly or monthly payroll, including auto-enrolment pension administration.
  • Annual accounts including Companies House filing.
  • Corporation Tax.
  • Support on specialist issues:

  • Commentary on the commercial performance of your restaurant, with input of advice for improvement.
