What is Hotel financial accounting?
Hotel financial accounting is part of the financial practices of the hospitality industry. Unlike traditional corporate accounting, where one compilation of financial records is used, hotel accounting financial reports are made by separate entities before 'consolidated reports’ are made by the hotel.
The key annual reports are not distinct from most accounting reports: I balance sheet, (ii) benefit and loss, and (iii) capital investment reports. These 3 statements are produced for the different departments and assessed by the department. In general, a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Accountant or Manager is responsible for managing accounting operations and produces financial reports such as Balance Sheet, Benefit & Loss (Income) and Cash Flow, etc.
Irrespective of the scale of the company, Accounting from the point of view of the hospitality industry is all about tracking and recovering cash flow in and out. Hotel Accounting is considered a perk for improved decision management that gives good fortune to hoteliers if it is managed effectively.
