The resource was created with the intention that it would be continuously developed to follow the ever-changing hospitality industry. The new partnership will facilitate this aim with access to up-to-date financial data from HotStats, a profit and loss benchmarking service.
"GHACP database is a global effort to provide an accessible online source of resources and guidance for hospitality industry accounting practices," said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe, CAE. "Together with HotStats we can ensure that this powerful and invaluable tool continues to be useful to hospitality accounting and financial professionals at all levels."
"Hospitality is a nuanced industry and this is even more pronounced on the finance side," said Pablo Alonso, CEO of HotStats. "The GHACP is one way stakeholders can stay abreast of the intricacies that go into financial reporting and other key matters. HotStats is delighted to partner with HFTP on this important initiative."
The GHACP allows users to learn and compare their financial reporting practices to current hospitality industry standards for both the lodging and club segments of the industry. Detailed operating financial reporting practices included are from the United States, Netherlands, United Kingdom, France, Hong Kong and Shanghai, China; as well as from the USALI, 10th and 11th editions and the USFRC, 7th edition. In particular the resource features example operating schedules for the various systems in addition to a searchable database of items (nominals) and accounts.
HotStats provides a unique profit and loss benchmarking service to hoteliers from across the globe, which enables monthly comparison of hotels' performance against their competitors. It is distinguished by the fact that it provides in excess of 100 performance metric comparisons covering 70 areas of hotel revenue, cost, profit and statistics providing far deeper insight into the hotel operation than any other tool. The HotStats database currently totals over a million hotel rooms worldwide.
