Where our clients have robust internal controls, authorisations etc, we review compliance and tailor audit programmes to reflect their standard requirements. Where controls are lacking we can write Standard Operating Procedures, provide training, and monitor compliance.

A review of accounts payable and accounts receivable departments are standard sections of our audit programme, checking for overpayments, commission claims and inaccurate accruals.

In addition, we can provide Food and Beverage stock check programmes, enabling clients to review cost of sales in real time, and ensure that budgeted gross profits are accurate and achievable.

We can work with an operators current audit program or we can provide our own program tailored to the specific requirements of each company

As an external contractor, we can also provide bespoke investigations where irregularities, potential fraud and erroneous postings are checked. We can also review Head Office functions.

Our reports include summaries of key points, details of items audited, and recommended actions. If required we can also score reports so each hotel can be benchmarked.
