Real-Time- Your Bookkeeper maintains Accounts on a Real-Time basis so that you can extract information that is up to date any time anywhere.

Your Goals and Dreams- The Bookkeeper understands what your goals and dreams are about your business and is in complete sync with it.

Current Financial Health Status- The Bookkeeper understands the current Financial Health of Business including key ratios such as the Current Ratio, Asset Turnover Ratio, etc. If the ratios are weak, the bookkeeper also understands what the best approach is to make them strong

KPIs- The restaurant business is heavy investment business and key to success how fixed costs are covered. Key to profitability is measuring and monitoring Key Performance Indicators on Daily/ Weekly and Monthly basis. Make sure your bookkeeper understands them and knows how to measure and monitor it.
