Paperchase Accountancy is the world’s leading hospitality bookkeeping specialists and UK Business Development Manager, Marc Bertorelli, is here to explain what makes Paperchase so special.
“You may think that Accountancy, Bookkeeping and Financial Management are not the sexiest elements of running a successful hospitality business, but they are an integral part of the overall recipe. For over 30 years, Paperchase has provided bookkeeping and financial management services to the hospitality industry, however, we do so much more than just bookkeeping and consider ourselves to be partners to each of our clients, offering insights, problem solving, supporting business growth and training” comments Marc Bertorelli.
Fast-moving hospitality businesses need tight financial controls to manage and understand the day-to-day running of their business. To gain that day-to-day or week-to-week financial insight, your business may have a full-time financial controller, or in a smaller business an office administrator who may be looking after the daily finances in addition to other responsibilities. Then you may be working with an organisation like Paperchase.
Paperchase is an outsourced specialist that becomes your finance department and on a daily, weekly, monthly basis, will manage your finances, reconcile your accounts, and create weekly or monthly reports to give you a precise insight to where your business is financially. With a greater understanding of the hospitality industry, Paperchase provides a far more tailored bookkeeping service that will give your business an accurate position of exactly where you are on a weekly basis.
Paperchase delves deep
Paperchase really understands your business. Being totally immersed in hospitality, we understand the sector and we miss nothing! Our teams are there to make your life better by making sure your invoices are organized, your payment schedule supports your cashflow, your credit notes are received, your tax returns are completed, and your sales platforms are reconciling with your bank.
Then there is the ‘tech’ that drives every hospitality business, with vital data coming from every system, such as: sales, reservations, payment platforms, team scheduling and stock management, however, this data has no value unless it can be put to good use. This is where Paperchase can deliver. Paperchase can produce a single weekly document that you can use to create meaningful reports and action plans. The granularity of analytics that Paperchase can provide its clients from this data is inciteful, delivering vital information on how a business is currently operating, as well as showing how they can improve and do better.
Paperchase builds weekly reports that bring together all your data from across your platforms into one central space for you to analyse. We have created our own online tools to help jobs get done away from the office, allowing your team to be on the floor and focusing on guest experience. Your Paperchase team will be built up of specialists in each area, so you have someone dedicated just to your supplier relations, to your reconciliations, to your procurement, recruitment, staff training, and so on, meaning you are ready to grow, and we have the resources to support that ambition.
The whole service delivery from Paperchase focuses on providing hospitality businesses with unique regular insights into their business and planning for growth through:
Tailored Bookkeeping – Delivering a level of bookkeeping aligned with your needs, removing unnecessary complications for smaller businesses whilst capturing the complexities of larger businesses. Paperchase delivers a tailored service via a team of experts in their field.
Supplier Liaison – Paperchase will take on the financial responsibility of managing your supply chain, managing invoices, the issuing of credit notes and create a timely payment schedule for you to approve, allowing you to focus on your business.
Reconciliations – Providing weekly account reconciliations meaning there are no surprises when reviewing your management accounts. Any discrepancies are caught early and cleared by your account dedicated team. A traditional accountancy practice may not offer this service and the longer a business is without a reconciliation, the longer that business is in the dark.
Robust Weekly Reports – With access to all your operational integrations we pull together a weekly ‘Mini P&L’, which enables you to manage your business more proactively by seeing everything in one space.
Cashflow Management – Paperchase clients have access to bespoke tools designed exclusively for the hospitality industry to help you understand and take advantage of opportunities in your business.
Scalability – Paperchase is a global business with extensive resource ready to support your business as it grows, fortifying your team without any impact on timelines or internal structure.
Timelines – A dedicated team is allocated to each client account and will ensure all deadlines are met, as Paperchase understand the pace of hospitality and the need to deliver reports in a timely and organised manner.
Marc Bertorelli comments “At Paperchase we want to help educate our clients to the value of precise, timely and insightful bookkeeping. Anyone who works with us knows that we are invested in their success. However, all too often, during handover to Paperchase, it is evident just how much is missed when it comes to truly understanding the needs of a hospitality business. As Paperchase are totally immersed in the hospitality business, we understand the industry and we miss nothing”.
