Two German hotels have become the latest to sign up as clients with a Scottish accountancy firm as it looks to expand its specialist team focused on the sector.
French Duncan ’s hotel accounting service has added the sites which are operated by its existing customer, Dutch-based Cycas Hospitality.
The Scottish firm works with a number of leading industry players including Doubletree by Hilton, Residence Inn Marriott, Best Western and Starwood Hotels.
The hotel service offers paperless accounting and enables clients to view real-time information on mobile devices at any time.
Ian Bremner, hotel accounting director with French Duncan, said: “These client gains indicate just how highly regarded and successful our hotel accounting service has become within the sector.
“We will be managing the account from our Glasgow office with input from a partner accountancy practice Treuhand in Germany, who are also part of the HLB global network.”
French Duncan is currently in the process of hiring 15 more staff in the hotel accounting team to cope with increasing demand.
Graeme Finnie, managing partner, said: “This is part of our five-year expansion plan to increase our overall staffing numbers by 40% and to grow the technologically based hotel accounting business alongside our traditional accountancy service offering.
“We also intend to expand the range of services that we offer to clients, building on the model of our hotel accounting service.”
