Accountancy for the Hospitality Sector

The hospitality industry is one of the most diverse, creative business sectors in the UK with many opportunities for growth. It also is one of the most challenging, with tightening consumer spending and rising costs, impacting on many businesses, notably the casual dining sector. 

The sector also faces competition for disruptors, with many businesses increasingly looking to re-evaluate their business models. For example, the hotel sector has changed dramatically with the rise of virtual communities, Airbnb and online travel agents.
