Abstract

In this first chapter we will introduce the concept of ‘control’ and hospitality in general. We’ll also look at the function of the financial control office where some of the control processes take place. As you’ll see as we work through further chapters, much of control happens in the operating departments – so control is a business-wide function, not just an accounting one.
By the end of this chapter you should be able to:
- Understand the basic approach of this book
- Define what a business is and the main reason for control
- Describe the main features of the different sectors of the industry
- Describe the various activities of the financial control office.
