Independent restaurant owners often make their own bookkeeping. Even if you hire a year-end professional accountant, you can save a lot of money on your weekly tasks.
Generating invoices tailored to restaurant needs generally require customization of the default accounting option for the accounting program. Selection of sales and cost accounts on most systems does not include the separation of the necessary food and beverage categories
Even the smallest bookkeeping program for small businesses, while the default choice for restaurants is not all accounts that most restaurant owners require. In addition, many added cost accounts are seldom used, which leads to confusion during data entry and does not help in reviewing business management.
The National Restaurant Association is a unified bookkeeping system for restaurants. The book provides a detailed description of the application of generally accepted accounting principles for the restaurant industry
This book includes a sample of invoices, but notes that "the codes used here are not the only way to classify the accounts." It emphasizes that most restaurants will not use all the categories listed, and there is in particular a lack of inventory and cost categories beyond "food" and "drink". Many restaurant owners want categories to be further separated into categories such as "meat", "seafood" and "products" and possibly "beer" and "wine" in the beverage categories.
require the use of accounts, the NRA prescribes that a counter system should be used. If the program does not display account numbers, the setup screen must have an option to activate this function.
Whichever billing system is usually grouped, so a particular type of account is in a particular number range. For example, the tools can be in the 1000 domain and the income accounts in the 4000 domain. On systems with many rich systems, 5-digit numbers can be used to enable multiple subcategories, but this is rarely needed for a small restaurant.
Typical number ranges used by many accounting systems are:
Device Accounts: 1000-1999
Responsible Accounts: 2000-2999
Share Accounts: 3000-3999
Revenue Accounts: 4000-4999
Goods price: 5000-5999
"Other" Bills: 8000-9999
The asset accounts include cash, bank accounts, inventory, and all other property.
is the first account number, 1000, in cash, as it usually takes place by group by liquidity (cash conversion).
Every account must use a separate account for each business. If the merchant deposits a few days to reach the bank, then the merchant can use it for a commercial account. In addition, if the checks are accepted and not processed electronically, an account must be created for the purpose of deposit.
New accounts are usually a 10-digit number, so their first two bank accounts can be used as 1010 and 1020 accounts. chart of accounts. To avoid differences between numbers, you can simply add another account later and sort it in any order.

Accountability accounts include things like credit cards and debentures. This also includes the money you received for things like taxes paid to the state, tips for employees, and gift cards sold but not yet redeemed. Property loans and other significant financing are classified as non-current liabilities

The investor's holdings in the company are listed on the equity accounts. For a company this includes share capital. This is really the money that the business will repay to the owners. If the accounting period is completed, the balance of income and cost categories can be transferred to long-term profits, which is also a capital account.
The simplest equity bills can be numbered:
- 3000 Ownership Capital
- 3100 Ordinary Shares
- 3300 Retained Profits
Sales are included in the general category of income accounts. A restaurant obviously wants separate categories for the sale of food and drinks, and wants to further isolate beer, wine and spirits.
Typical income accounts are as follows:
- 4,000 sales
- 4200 food sales
- 4320 beverage sales
- 4330 liqueur sales
- 4340 beer sales
- 4350 wine sales
- 4360 merchandise
- 4500 Hospitality and Contracts  4700 Other operating income
- 4900 Discounts
The difference between NRA recommendations and many other lists means placement of "other income" accounts. This may include revenue from sources such as cover fees, gaming or vending machines, and banquet rooms. Most of these accounts put these accounts in the 8000 range over costs, but the NRA list places them in the 6000 range.
Most small sites require only one category for other earnings. Since the "cost of goods" is a general subgroup of expenditure, it is appropriate to avoid placing the income category in the middle of the province from COGS through spending. Within the 4000 domain, a single account has been added to this list.
Entering discounts into a revenue category means that this is a "counter" account. Where most of the sales categories are a credit line, discounts usually have a debit balance.
Costs of Goods Accounts
Expense Charges Accounted for Sales Costs Goods sold represent food and drink purchases to provide meals. Other costs directly related to sales include, for example, commercial charges or consumables and napkins

The cost of a list of goods may include:
- 5200 Food Cost
- 5210 Meat
- 5220 Poultry

This example lists cost accounts in three main categories: payroll costs and other costs. Payroll costs are grouped in 6000, the other operating costs are in the 7,000 range. Rents, taxes and amortization costs are in the range of 8,000.
Although invoices must be broken down to the minimum to separate tax lines, combining sparse accounts makes it much easier to understand the overview. The following list combines several categories that are often different in other graphs.
Check with your accountant or tax preparer to ensure that anything you combine is actually the same line of tax.
