Accounting For The Hospitality & Leisure Sector

The hospitality & leisure sector, though retail-focused, is incredibly diverse. It focuses on providing consumers with food, drink, accommodation and recreation.

Despite the political and economic uncertainty currently surrounding this industry, it still remains as one of the biggest employment sectors in the UK. Due to the sheer size of the workforce, it’s essential that everyone – from small, family-run businesses to global chains – get the appropriate financial help they need to succeed.

As the worth of the British pound falls, the growth in tourism (and Brits taking up ‘staycations’) rises.

We Have Open Minds

Hotel prices, for example, are cheaper than ever thanks to the devaluation of the pound and introduction of ‘budget hotel’ services like Airbnb. As a whole, this is a brilliant outcome for the British tourism industry. International visitors are more likely to holiday here, and Brits themselves are more likely to opt to holiday locally due to the significant difference in price.

However, individual business – due to the recent competitive increase between brands – are more likely to suffer financially. Price is one of the biggest factors people consider in the hospitality & leisure sector – so how can companies beat their competitor’s prices without harming their own business? That’s where Nordens comes in. We can show you how to set yourself apart from your competition, without lowering your prices to a potentially detrimental state.
