Bar stocktaking and auditing activities are crucial to running a profitable drinks business. Many wet-led and liquor focused businesses in the licensed trade, deal with unnecessary daily losses from their bars because their margins, pouring practices, stock controls and financial controls are not optimised.
Whether you run one bar or multiple bars, serve alcoholic beverages or not, a strong stocktaking and auditing programme can make all the difference in the profit you return from your drinks stock. Venners stocktakers and profit consultants have worked with some of the UK’s top bar operators, from sports bars to concept bars, and cocktail bars to wine bars, helping them effectively control stock and finances. Stocktaking and financial auditing will help you:
“Venners were brought on board to help management get a better understanding on GP% and most importantly, to help with the analysis of stock shortages and to identify where there were issues. The detail on the stock reports is very good and they have helped the venue to improve and maintain targets.”
