Having the right strategy to reach your company goals is the key to any successful organization. However, companies often overlook how an effective internal audit / internal control program can contribute to this strategy.
Each of our internal audits incorporates 4 major
1. The client's needs. What are the goals of the audit/ internal control review?
2. Compliance. - Ensuring the location is compliant with current policies and procedures.
3. Risk based methodology. - This methodology includes:
- Identifying the risk.
- Assessing the risk.
- Monitoring the risk.
4. Solutions. Provide recommendations to our clients that are cost effective and
reduce their risk. These recommendations include but are not limited to revisions to
current policies/procedures and to be more effecient based on the clients current labor model
The audits cover all aspects of the daily hotel operation including but not limited
- Cash Handling

All of our audits are conducted by professionals who have held General Manager, Controllers or Staff Accountant positions within the hospitality industry. Currently our staff has over 70 years of hotel accounting experience. In many cases these audits can be designed to be completed remotely thereby saving our clients money and still being able to improve their bottom line.
In 2009 we created an internal audit program designed specifically for limited/select service hotels. This audit takes approximately 24 hours and focuses on the high risk areas.
All full service hotels are “mystery shopped” during the audit at no additional charge. The results of these visits are conveyed to the hotel while on property and are included in the report.
David has been at the hotel on several occasions through-out the years as an independent
auditor to insure that the hotel had the proper financial checks and balances in place. David’s vast knowledge of accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, etc. made him and his company the
ideal choice. David is very detail oriented and thorough and when compared to other firms, offers a good value. He has always been extremely consistent and reliable.”
