If your business needs access to the services related on this website, but you cannot justify, or want the commitment of taking on an employee, then Accounting & General has the ideal solution.

We offer  a tailor made support service to your  business as and when required on a contract basis.

Managerial Support

Finance Executive Butlins Minehead:

450,000 guests each year. Chalets, caravans, extensive retail.

General manager Tresco Estate

 Isles of Scilly:

A diverse business including the AA red star Island Hotel, 50 timeshare and rental holiday cottages, three AA rosetted restaurants, the world-famous Tresco Abbey Garden, and an extensive convenience and fresh food store.

Plus recent responsibility for a gastro pub collection, major day visitor attraction and Richardson Hotels, a large south west hotel group.

I have the benefit of many years of experience in managing leisure businesses from -

Hotels, to pubs and inns, holiday parks, holiday cottages, timeshare, day visitor attractions, gift shops and food retail.

As you approach each new situation with your business, would you benefit from the advice that could come from that experience?

My service is flexible but committed.

You can contract me for the number of days each month that your business needs. Then if at any time you want more or less, it is agreed, at your option.

Your business may grow, so that it becomes cost effective to employ someone on a permanent basis, or you wish to engage a family member to take a more active role, or you are winding down. There is no redundancy to pay or contracts to compensate. We professionally move on.

The role I can undertake is flexible. A finance manager, completing the accounts or overseeing the function. An operations manager  structuring and reviewing your staffing. A  marketing manager devising your new season campaign of direct mail, Internet advertising, or loyal guest offers. And so on ......

Please call me to discuss your requirements.

Do you sometimes feel that your business is pedaling hard, but you are not sure where it is going?

Would you benefit from  the discipline of a monthly review, refocus and move forward with defined goals?

Do you worry that you are not aware of industry trends or new legislation?

This is what a professional mentor can achieve for you.

Cost effectively.
