Restaurant owners rarely know how much accounting is required to run their restaurant.  Naturally, they just assume that the accountant “just handles it.”

But does the accountant really handle it?

Many restaurant owners come to us with the full accounting functions being split between an in-house person, an outside payroll company, the owner and an outside CPA or accounting firm.

Splitting the various accounting functions can lead to very bad consequences – missed tax deadlines, non-payment of taxes, undetected theft, and major problems as a result of unclear differentiation of duties.  When a bad error occurs, each party points the finger at the other party and many times they are justified because there are holes in the process.

Kallas has built its practice around the efficient performance of the full accounting cycle just for restaurants.   Accounting Cycle For Restaurants

This helps us to know precisely what you need, helps you simplify your life, and make sure all areas of need are covered.

In the next few issues of the newsletter, I will publish our copyrighted Accounting Cycle Worksheet which identifies what needs to be accounted for in your restaurant.  Each restaurant is different so some items may not be applicable to you.

The Worksheet is divided into five cycles:

  1. Sales Cycle
  2. Purchasing Cycle
  3. Accounts Payable/Disbursements Cycle
  4. Payroll Cycle
  5. Financial Statements/Tax cycle.
