Comprehensive Bookkeeping Solutions for Your Bar, Café or Restaurant

Our qualified accountants and bookkeepers provide tailored solutions that cater for your businesses unique needs. Together, we will make sure you are on track to achieve your financial goals.

Wilson Pateras’ experts help you stay on top of tax requirements, cash flow budgeting, financial planning and accounting for your bar or restaurant.

Simplify Your Payroll

Running a restaurant is a 24-7 job, with much of your work done outside conventional working hours and well into the evening, on weekends and during holiday periods. This intensity is compounded by the hospitality industry’s high staff turnover. This irregularity in hours and staffing impacts on your payroll – making the bookkeeper’s role of paramount importance. Wilson Pateras will provide your hospitality business with easy-to-use accounting software that will simplify the way you manage your payroll.
