Hospitality & Tourism

Accounting is crucial in tourism and hospitality for tracking finances, managing costs, and ensuring profitability. It helps businesses make informed decisions, comply with tax regulations, and maintain financial stability.

Financial accounting provides insights into a hospitality business’s financial health, allowing effective cost management, budgeting, pricing decisions, and strategic planning.

The Uniform System of Accounts for the Lodging Industry (USALI) is a widely used standard accounting system in the hospitality industry, providing guidelines for financial reporting and analysis.

The responsibility of an accountant includes:

  1. Bookkeeping and record keeping
  2. Budgeting and forecasting
  3. Financial reporting
  4. Taxation
  5. Audit
  6. Cost analysis
  7. Financial planning and analysis

 In the UK, hospitality businesses need to manage various taxes including Value Added Tax (VAT), Corporation Tax, and National Insurance contributions. Proper accounting ensures compliance with tax regulations, accurate reporting, and timely payments.


When tourists visit places, they need boarding, lodging, and shopping. This contributes to a significant amount of income generation. The biggest contribution of this industry to the economy of our country is creating a host of new jobs. 


All touring expenditure incurred by foreign tourists is a source of foreign exchange earnings which increases the foreign currency reserves of a country. As Hospitality and Tourism are strengthened by the government, investments in the sector also rise. 


Another advantage that the Hospitality and Tourism industry confers on an economy is the preservation of traditional industries and handicrafts. Tourists worldwide take great interest in the indigenous products of places they visit. 


Good infrastructural facilities attract more and more tourists. This derives the need to develop infrastructures like roads, buildings, and power plants. Tourism aids and encourages infrastructure development by making way for dams, roads, connectivity, airports, etc., and any other activity that helps a tourist visit places in much more comfort.

I like their flexible approach. I had a bunch of small problems what was too little to big firms but too big for me. They explained the process, fees etc and solved my troubles. Price wise also been on the better side. Personally I recommend Rehmat. He is super responsive.

I have been using Lanop Accountants for more than 3 years, and could not recommend them more highly to any one starting out in business or established business practice. Their professionalism, promptness and excellent customer service makes them in my opinion second to none.
I used Lanop accountants to file some paperwork with HMRC as a non-dom resident. I’ve been very happy and impressed with their work so far. Zaib has been very knowledgeable and helpful. I recommend them and plan to use them again.
