We’re Hospitality accounting experts

Static or declining sales? We can apply sales growth strategies and implement a plan to help you improve.

Tight cashflow? We’ll review your cashflow patterns regularly, develop sales, pricing and direct cost strategies and check the adequacy of your sources of working capital.

Young & Associates can help you improve your gross profit margins with direct cost reviews and pricing systems. We can also help with staffing costs, overhead expenditure management by conducting an effective expenditure review so you know where you can save money cost-effectively.

We understand hospitality businesses

The team at Young & Associates understands that running a hospitality business is no easy feat. The industry is fast-paced, operates long hours, has rostered staff and requires a lot of patience! We take the stress out of managing your business financial matters so you can get back to what you enjoy most. We have a detailed understanding of the way your business operates, as well as the challenges, barriers and obstacles you face on a daily basis from fast food outlets to licenced premises. Not only will we do the standard number-crunching and offer regular business performance reporting, we’ll actually help you overcome issues you’re facing. Our focus on the hospitality industry means we’re particularly good at identifying business issues and implementing a plan to solve them. Young & Associates will guide your business to success with relevant business advice, accounting and tax services.

We understand many business owners have trouble growing their business, and often don’t know what to do when their business stagnates or drifts. To combat this, we’ll sit down with you to develop a clear business plan which includes relevant strategies and tactics to help boost business performance. We will help you build value in your business asset.

Young & Associates also knows hospitality businesses rely on frequent performance reporting from accurate business systems. So we’ll review your current processes, prepare a technology plan and assist you in the implementation. Static or declining business value and volume can be overcome by implementing profit and equity growth strategies, business rebranding, refreshing or re-engineering.

And if, like many other business owners, tax time is the stuff of nightmares or you’re not being remunerated adequately, we’ll work with you to develop a proactive “no surprise” tax strategy and tax minimisation plan to improve after-tax profits.

Working long hours can cause you to lose the fun, enjoyment or passion you had for your business when it first started. To overcome this, Young & Associates will implement “working on the business” techniques.

Our pricing

At Young & Associates, we offer fixed and transparent pricing options. Our fixed fees are agreed upfront and are available on most services. This enables you to avoid surprise bills and allows you to budget effectively. You can spread the fixed fees over small monthly instalments as you trade making it easy on your cashflow. Our valuable ad hoc advice is free of charge. If, however, an assignment arises out of the ad hoc advice or discussions then we will agree an upfront fixed fee with you before proceeding with the work.
