FINANCE CONSULTING

Finance and Accounting are the backbone of any successful organization. The ability to provide timely and accurate financial information for business decisions to be made by a Hotel’s Leadership Team, Owners, Potential Owners, Development Teams, and Lenders is essential for a business to flourish in today’s environment. SSP’s team of experienced hospitality F&A consultants will work with you to make a fact-based Gap Analysis assessment of your current processes, procedures, people, controls, compliance, systems, internal and external GAAP financial reporting, internal and external audit, treasury, tax, budgeting, forecasting, labor and expense management, cash flow, capital expense planning, and data analytics as compared to the needs of your organization, owners and lenders. SSP can seamlessly transform that Gap Analysis into a detailed, actionable, and timely Transformation Project Plan that would result in a world-class F&A function. The Plan scope will be tailored to your organization’s needs of not just today, but where your Business Plan will lead the organization into its future.
