For example, you will be able to calculate your most significant expenses or identify the best-selling menu items.
Profit and loss statements and balance sheets are particularly crucial for restaurant owners to gauge their business’s financial status. The profit and loss statement shows your restaurant’s profitability while the balance sheet shows your restaurant’s worth at a specific time.
As is the case with any business, constant improvement is critical to ensure sustainable growth. With our accounting services, you’ll know exactly where to make these improvements.
As a restaurant owner in Ontario, you have to be compliant with all relevant tax regulations and policies. Our tax planning solutions ensure that you pay your liabilities on time, reducing your risk for a CRA audit, penalties, and fines.
We stay up to date on the latest Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations and policies, including those pertaining to tax-deductible expenses. With our tax planning solutions, we aim to minimize your tax liability and maximize your profits.
These services include advising you on the correct tax forms to use for your sole proprietorship or corporation. We can take care of all your tax accounting, from identifying tax-deductible expenses to filing your return and assisting you in dealing with the CRA.
Your restaurant’s prime cost is a critical key performance indicator. This cost refers to the sum of your inventory, or cost of goods sold, and labor cost. In essence, these are the costs of the products and services you need for your restaurant to serve customers.
Controlling prime cost is a prerequisite to keeping your restaurant profitable. Using prime cost as a guide, you can manage your restaurant’s daily revenue to ensure that you meet your profit margin objective.
If you don’t know your prime cost or don’t know what your prime cost is supposed to be, it becomes challenging to set revenue targets. By using our accounting services, you can analyze your prime cost and adjust your prices accordingly.
