Top experts specializing in hospitality management have contributed articles to this new collection which explains recent developments in accounting and finance. The material is drawn from a combination of fieldwork and practical experience. The managerial emphasis means that the content is fully relevant internationally and not constrained by the legal framework of different countries. Accounting and Finance for the International Hospitality Industry provides an overview of analysis and evaluation of performance, planning methods and techniques, financial information and control, and financial management. It also shows how operational analysis can be used as a management tool to improve performance. Techniques for predicting the financial success or failure of hotels are suggested. Research into hotel companies in the US and Europe demonstrates key performance indicators used by hotel managers and financial executives. Accounting and Finance for the International Hospitality Industry will be an invaluable resource for final year undergraduate and postgraduate students of hospitality management. Practising accountants, managers and consultants who need to keep up to date with new developments in the industry, particularly those who are members of the British Association of Hotel Accountants, will also find it useful. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
