Expert Restaurant Group CPAs

Restaurants are highly competitive and cyclical in nature; they are significantly affected by tourism trends, the economy, and even the weather, all factors beyond anyone’s control.  Because of this, many restaurants operate on a slim margin and don’t have a lot of room for inefficiency. Having a trusted and experienced restaurant CPA on your side can make all of the difference.

For assistance with projecting revenues, maintaining inventory, purchasing restaurant equipment, and tax planning, it’s vital to use a CPA firm that understands the financial and tax challenges faced by businesses in the restaurant industry.

Bucknam & Conley CPAs have been serving restaurant and restaurant group clients for decades. We can assist you with general accounting needs, such as maintaining accounting records, generating internal financial statements, and more. We can also help you with industry-specific matters such as employing tipped employees, selling gift certificates, government tax incentives, and utilizing tax credits, such as the R&D and employer FICA credits. We have an in-depth knowledge of the repair regulations, deductibility of expenses, and Qualified Improvement Property. We can also help you with payroll tax, sales tax compliance, and serve as a partner to your CFO.

“As a technology company, we work hard to keep current with changing cyber security regulations and we were looking for an Accounting firm that did the same in their field. We found that with Bucknam and Conley.  They proactively research, are always on top of new regulations and keep us informed of anything that might affect our business. Of course they handle all of the traditional CPA functions like our taxes, but we were looking for more and we found our partner with Bucknam and Conley! We are customers for life and highly recommend them to anyone, especially those that value staying current with a growing business.”
