A little bit about me, my skills, experience & knowledge and what I have to offer to you and your business
I've spent over 30 years working in the hospitality trade, working for the former Bass Taverns, starting as a part time bar person, then progressing to assistant manager, relief manager and finally to Licensed House Manager which included conducting in-house stocktakes, product Line checks & Stock Control, as well as working for several Clubs as a Club Steward, again liaising with designated Stock Auditors and as a Stock Audit supervisor and analyst for several well known, large, Stock Auditing companies conducting and supervising counts for many well known, national, large retailers, during this time I've gained valuable skills, experience and knowledge in all aspects of stock control, auditing, & management which has stood me in good stead to operate my own Stock Auditing Services business providing both WET & DRY Stock Audits to various, Independent or Branch Chain clients in the Stoke on Trent, Newcastle under Lyme, Leek, Cheadle & Stone areas in Staffordshire or any place where Food & Drink is sold in these areas.
I am also certified by CPL Training & Venners (See the Certificate below)
I am Methodical and I don't rush a Stock Count as accuracy is more Important than speed, counts will take as long as it takes as it's very Important to get it right.
Here's what I can offer to you and your business to help you to:
1. Increase your profit margins
2. Reduce waste & shrinkage
3. Highlight any problem areas with your stock which could have a severe Impact on the business and it's profits and
4. After each stock audit, I will go through the report with you and make any recommendations required or needed with your Stock or Cash at the time.
I'm able to offer a professional, accurate & reliable WET or DRY Stock Taking service as my previous skills, knowledge & experience enable me to do this, to all of the following:
Pubs, Clubs, Gyms, Hotels, combined Pub/Restaurants, Cafe's, Restaurants and Takeaway's, in fact, anywhere selling food or drink in the Stoke on Trent, Newcastle under Lyme, Leek, Cheadle & Stone areas, 7 days a week, all year round.
WET & DRY reports will include a full analysis of your stock movements, purchases, sales, profit margins, days stock, credits, and closing stock and will come with recommendations to further increase your profit margin and to reduce stock losses through waste or pilfering as stock is one of your biggest assets and any problems you may unknowingly have may have an adverse effect on the stability of your business and it's profits.
Both the WET & DRY reports in use have VAT Rates that can be adjusted at anytime, and to any amount and Current & Year to date totals.
To successfully complete your WET or DRY Stock Take, all of the following Information is needed.
1. All of your delivery/credit/ transfer notes & Invoices for the period in question
2. Your Takings & any Waste allowances
3. Details on any promotions or discounts you run
4. Line cleaning, waste & other allowances (These will be verified by myself)
5. A Till or EPOS "Z" Reading, with this I can check Cash Receipts and check for any problems regarding your Stock.
(I strongly recommend taking copy's of ALL of your Delivery/Credit/ Transfer notes & Invoices for me before you send them to your Accountant - this is MOST Important, I can't verify your Stock Audit without these documents)
With this Information I can also conduct an Audit Compliance check, checking Cash Receipts, Petty Cash & Banking reconciliations which will highlight any discrepancies with you Cash, Tills & Floats or onsite cash flow problems for you to Investigate.
A Food safety & Compliance check - Labelling, Temperatures, Displaying of, Dates & Rotation etc.
Spirit checking using a hydrometer will also be undertaken to check for watered or contaminated spirits etc.
(Contaminated Items will be removed from your Stock and show as a DEFICIT and will require Investigations by you to establish what has happened - NOTE: Audit Compliance, Spirit Hydrometer checking & Food safety & compliance Audits are checked 3 or 4 time a year and are carried out randomly by myself and will Include a full report for you to consider)
As a standard recommendation to everyone dealing in Food or Drink, all stock close to it's Sell by or Use by Date should be reduced, you should get an allowance for these reductions, please keep a note in your waste book etc. If I conduct your Stock Audit's, I won't give you an allowance for Items Passed the Use or Sell by date if you don't reduce them prior to these dates and they will show as a DEFICIT in your stock report
At the end of every Audit, an "Audit Satisfaction" report will be signed by both myself and company representative to ensure everyone is satisfied with the Audit outcome and what steps, if any, or Investigations need to be taken before your next Audit.
A FREE Bar Price Tariff and measure dispensed by ml size will be issued with all WET Stock Audits. (Legally required as per the Weights & Measures act)
(I can't stress the Importance of providing me with all the correct and up to date Information regarding your Stock as you won't get an accurate result without it, you'll also be wasting your money and my time too and it may also have an Impact on your Stock Audit results and Tax liability as well)
Individual WET or DRY counts should take up to 4 hours if completed onsite, you'll get your result the next working day if not.
Combined WET & DRY Audits will be a full day onsite.
Our WET & DRY reports are graded by the results achieved (RED, AMBER or GREEN)
RED - Both Current and Year to Date Results - DEFICIT
AMBER - 1 DEFICIT and 1 SURPLUS Result
GREEN - Both Current & Year to Date Results SURPLUS
(See all of the Example Reports in the ZIP file below, there's also a free Calendar to download Included)

NOTE: Payment is required in full, with CASH for your FIRST stock audit, then by a 30 day Invoice in CASH or by Cheque or BACS.
(With WET & DRY Audits, I don't recommend going over 56 days as a lot can happen during this time, Audits are recommended every 28 or Monthly - I STRONGLY RECOMMEND EVERY 28 DAYS)
WET & DRY Stock Audits can be conducted anytime and to suit your business requirements and all come complete with a Year-End Stock Valuation certificate for your Accountant, along with any recommendations needed to help you improve the profitability of your business and on how to better control your stock, Profit margins, waste and levels after every Audit.

(Result is dependent on the accuracy of your previous Auditors closing count/figures etc.)
