Food and catering
The food and catering industry covers businesses at every stage of the food chain, from importers and wholesalers to storage and refrigeration specialists and retailers, including greengrocers, butchers, supermarkets, pubs, hotels and restaurants.
The industry is particularly vulnerable to influences outside its control. If one section is affected, others may be too. This makes professional financial and business advice particularly important for businesses in this industry.
Our experience and understanding of the food and catering sector has been developed over many years of hands-on involvement. For example, we were the first accountants to open an office in New Covent Garden fruit and vegetable market in Nine Elms, to be close at hand for clients working unsociable hours.
We offer all the tax and accounting services you would expect, such as developing tax and financial planning strategies tailored to your needs. We also understand a trader’s day-to-day problems. We can advise on specialist matters including bank guarantees, letters of credit and dissection controls.
In the retail sector, whether you are a grocer, pub, club or restaurant, we’ll do more than simply look after issues like bookkeeping, payroll and VAT. We can also offer help in negotiating tenancy agreements and rent reviews, for example.
The level of service we provide is up to you. We can take care of all your accountancy, business and financial needs, or provide just one or two services.
