Not many people in the hospitality trade love bookkeeping – but someone’s got to do it! It’s a legal requirement. Reliable accounts and records don’t just keep you square with the tax man and help you sleep soundly at night – they’re also the key to running a prosperous business.

Without a clear picture of your business’s income and expenditure, you have no idea whether you’re doing well, or just scraping along the bottom. And without that insight, you can’t correct course and improve your margins.

Many small businesses try to save money by doing their own books, but it’s usually a false economy. A job that takes you all day (plus grief and guesswork) might take us a couple of hours. All our clients find our services cost-effective and efficient, and appreciate having peace of mind.

At Hayhoe Webb, we don’t just love bookkeeping, we also love the hospitality sector. Paul has years of hands-on experience in the trade, and has developed a straightforward bookkeeping service specially geared to hospitality and tourism businesses, saving you hours of time and stress.

Every pub, restaurant, B&B and hotel is different. Some businesses want to be closely involved in their bookkeeping, others prefer a hands-off approach so they can concentrate on day-to-day operations. We’ll do whatever you need to keep your books shipshape, ready for efficient processing at the end of the tax year.

We provide bookkeeping and accounting services to numerous hospitality businesses around the country, flexibly tailored to their needs.

Advantages include:

  • Simple online accounting or paper-based – up to you!
  • Simple time-saving system
  • Training and induction
  • Our own Excel spreadsheets
  • Clear reporting
  • On-the-phone support from the wonderful Betty
  • Tips and advice specific to hospitality businesses

What Our Clients Say

Paul’s very approachable and understanding. If you’ve got the world on your shoulders, give him a call. He does exactly what it says on the tin, and I’d highly recommend him to anybody. If it wasn’t for Paul, I wouldn’t be in the pub now. It’s the best money anyone could spend on an accountant.
