My husband and I opened up our business two years ago. The first year, I took care of our accounting needs. I had always taken care of our personal accounting, and I figured this would be similar. I could not have been more wrong. Taking care of just our accounting is a piece of cake, but that changes when you involve employees, invoices, taxes, and a multitude of other financial things that are involved with running a decent sized business. I knew I was in over my head, so I went online to do a search for hospitality accountants to get some help with this.
I did a search for hospitality accountants, because one of the things that I learned was different types of businesses have different types of accounting needs. I did not want to go to a bookkeeper who might need to learn some new things related to the type of industry we are in. I wanted a company that was already familiar with the accounting practices for our type of business. I also wanted an accounting company that has a stellar reputation because this was a lot of money that we are dealing with on a monthly basis.
It took me just a few minutes to know which company I wanted to use. I was happy with not only the description of what they do but also with the testimonials from some pretty famous companies in the area. Knowing that this accounting firm was helping these well known businesses stay on the up and up was really the deciding point for me. It was easy to become a client, and it is so nice to just have to scan what they need and put it in the cloud. I never knew that this would be this easy!
