The forward-looking approach to accounting and finance for your hospitality business
When it comes to accounting services, the traditional approach is to report retrospectively on what has happened before - with little focus on improving the pain points within your business. Gild takes a very different approach.
Gild’s Business Management and Virtual CFO offerings take a tailored approach. Based on our hospitality industry-experience and industry-connections, we’re able to provide specific business insights from the inside out. The results are reflected in the financial position of our clients.
If sales are down … why are they down? If COGS are too high … what are your options? If staff training is a challenge… what is that costing the business? And, how have leading hospitality businesses addressed these challenges in the past?
This specific industry expertise applied to managing your financial requirements will create an unfair advantage for your business.
What is Gild Business Management?
Accounting should be so much more than just reporting on the financials. Over and above traditional accounting, Gild’s Business Management team provide deep, industry-specific, financial expertise that results in tangible business outcomes.
Our financial advisors understand the operational and logistical sides of a hospitality business, so they can help you make optimal decisions from a holistic, business-wide and industry-wide perspective.
What is a Gild Virtual CFO?
A Gild Virtual CFO is an experienced Gild CFO who comes into your business virtually to provide strategic financial advice that will plan your business forward.
Hiring a traditional CFO is an incredibly expensive commitment. The value of a Gild Virtual CFO is not having someone occupy your office, and your payroll, 40hrs a week. Instead, you get 20+ years of financial strategy experience – as well as ongoing experience with the leading peers in your industry – at a fraction of the cost.
