Supporting your Club Secretary or Treasurer

For many Club Secretaries or Treasurers stock control and audit can be a little daunting or an area where they have limited expertise.

As your independent auditor I am able to help your Secretary or Treasurer get to grips with this profitable area from pricing advice to keeping bar returns at the target level and letting you know what is really going on behind the bar.

Your sports club or social club bar audit

Club Secretary, Treasurer and Bar Sub committee chair’s duties may include reporting to club management committees.

For this reason special attention is paid to advising on price changes and profitability, and providing technical advice. Written reports are provided if required.

A typical Sports Club and Social Clubs stocktaking and audit visit includes:

  • • Full, accurate stock count carried out and an inventory prepared
  • • Out of date or short dated stock identified
  • • Paperwork sorted and collated onto a dedicated stock control system
  • • Bar price and invoice cost update

All of the auditing takes place on site and so none of your important business documents are taken off site.

Club discount systems

Do you have a Steward running a Club Bar on your behalf?

If you employ a steward to run your Club bar then you should also retain a stock auditor to monitor the stock. This protects not only the Club’s officers, but the steward as well.

Club food and catering audits

Most clubs offer food, from bar snacks to restaurant meals, and we are able to provide stocktaking services for your catering facilities covering everything from tracking your gross profit to menu costing and kitchen control.

New owner or selling up?

If you are in the process of buying or selling a sports or social club then an independent valuation of the stock in hand is essential. We will provide new owner, previous owner or both a report and year-end valuation certificates that your accountant will normally require.
