PPC’s Guide to Restaurants and Bars helps restaurateurs balance the need for operational controls and timely management reports with the demands of the hospitality industry. It is designed to be used for both CPAs who have restaurant & bar clients and restaurateurs who want to improve their operations.

The PPC’s guide covers various operational areas of restaurants and bars, including the revenue cycle, portion costs and controls, menu pricing and evaluation, purchasing and inventory, and personnel matters. It addresses developing management reports, financial statements, restaurant operations, starting and acquiring restaurants, inventory capitalization, and other important tax considerations. In addition, the Guide provides practical guidance for practitioners who provide accounting and consulting services to their restaurant clients.

The guide contains numerous practice aids, including financial statement disclosure checklists, illustrative financial statements, and management forms and questionnaires, all tailored to meet the needs of restaurant and bar operations.

This guide has been updated to include relevant technical developments as of September 2012 and is current as of Financial Accounting Standard Board Accounting Standards Update No. 2012-03.
