Whatever the size of your business, whether it’s part of a group or independent and family run, PKF Francis Clark has a team of specialist hospitality accountants who can help you.

The hospitality sector is at the heart of the South and West’s economies. In many areas, it accounts for as much as 25% of the jobs and a significant proportion of regional GDP.

This is why we’ve put together a team of leisure and hospitality chartered accountants who work closely with clients to ensure their businesses are as profitable as possible. We have tried to specialise within the sector to ensure expertise is specific to business type and size, with plenty of knowledge and experience to draw upon.

They work alongside our food and drink accounting specialists to provide excellent industry-specific financial supports. Working with clients across the sector including hotels, restaurants, pubs, and bars.

Family Business Advice

We appreciate that many hospitality businesses are family-owned and run.

Working with family members can bring additional challenges to any business owner. Balancing the interests of family and your businesses is not always easy, which is why we offer advice that is tailored to family-run businesses.

Our hospitality accountants offer bespoke business support that takes into account owner aspirations and objectives to cover all areas of your business. This can include succession planning, ownership issues, and tax planning.

Managing your tax bill

Our team of chartered accountants can help you minimise your tax overhead and provide assistance with ensuring you pay the correct levels of tax.

We will work alongside you to create a structured, strategic tax plan that meets your specific needs.

We can identify any tax reliefs, allowances or exemptions you can take advantage of on your corporation or income tax returns.

Tackling VAT

Staying on top of VAT is essential for any business. Our hospitality tax specialists can guide you through every step of the VAT process to help you file on time and avoid any penalties for
non-compliance.

Payroll and Auto-enrolment

Our team of expert hospitality accountants can assist with all the issues around paying your employees, including payroll enrolment.

Increasingly the sector is looking for ways to incentivise staff and ensure retention rates are improved. We can assist with ideas around bonus and share incentive plans.
