  2. For the Past few years the pub trade has been pushed to the edge trying to make a decent profit.

    You need to know your true Gross Profit, not the figure based on the takings in the till.

    You have to clean the beer lines, you will lose some beer in the drip trays, the odd dropped bottle and maybe your pint at the week ends, there will always be lost stock.

    But how much money are you losing?

    Over pouring a "glass" of wine, or that dash of cola that's nearly a half pint....
    the post mix mixing 2 to 1 instead of 5 to 1 ...
    the member of staff who's mates drink for free.
    this is stock you can't afford to lose !

    You can't put things right untill you know whats wrong....

    A regular stocktake will identify what you're losing and where.

For pubs and hotels stocktaking your drink and stock valuation can now be the difference between success and failure, profit and loss. Indeed, there are many recent cases where it has rescued some very serious situations.
A professional stocktaker can advise you on all aspects of good control measures, including:
Ensuring gross profits are maintained on every single product ­ your surplus and deficit trading positions ­ your total overall profitability ­ eliminating over-stocking by confirming stockholding.
Making marketing and promotions more effective. Build a complete picture of how the business is performing against current trends ­ providing a comparison with similar previous periods to give a historical record of trading figures ­ identifying losses not only through accurate counting but by reporting against actual till sales to highlight discrepancies between consumption and revenue received.
In addition, a professionally trained stocktaker's reports are accepted as valid records for tax, accounting and VAT purposes.
Pub Stocktaking should be viewed as an effective tool to help licensees compete in today's high-pressure trade.
