Hospitality Accounting

Running a restaurant, café, bar or hotel is demanding. Working in the hospitality industry often means long hours, low margins, high competition, regulatory compliance and a large volume of sales transactions. Wilson Pateras’ specialist hospitality accountants will help you to manage your cash flow, minimise tax and streamline your finances – leaving you to focus on serving your customers.

Accountants and Bookkeepers Specialising in the Hospitality Industry

Wilson Pateras are a Melbourne-based, full-service accounting firm offering specialised accounting and bookkeeping for hotels, cafes and restaurants. Our award-winning approach isn’t merely about compliance and getting your books right. We help you to have a more successful business and to make better financial decisions by providing you with proactive financial advice and tax minimisation ideas.

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 import. Wilson Pateras will provide your hospitality business with easy-to-use accounting software that will simplify the way you manage your payroll.
