Tracking business expenses and loans is more important than what most franchise restaurant owners think. Having to track your business expenses and loans is not an exciting activity. After all, it takes your focus away from your main role—looking after the restaurant operations. However, you also don’t want to run around in panic, trying to gather and organize all that you need, during tax season or when it’s time to close your loan account. This is where expense and loan accounting validation for franchise restaurants plays a key role.
Expense and loan accounting validation ensures that you are tracking your expenditures and loans and are awareness about your business’s finance. Additionally, you are able to identify issues in spending, stick to your budget, and avoid going into ‘too much’ debt. Starting with expense validation, following is a brief introduction to expense and loan accounting validation for franchise restaurants.
What Is Expense Validation?
Tracking expenses may feel like a mundane task but performing it is extremely important. Keeping track of where you are spending your business money is critical. This is first step in knowing how you are taking control of your business finances and managing your money. At first, tracking expenses may seem like a lot of work but it is up to you to make it as easy or difficult as you want to. By tracking and validating your expenses, you will no longer feel like you have little to show for your hard work.
When expense validation is performed for franchise restaurants without reliable, audited statements, it gives outcomes that are jumbled within the parent company. Even audited statements are unable to provide a reliable measure for them. Professionally performed expense validation can verify the historic results of your franchise restaurant faster and in a more cost-effective way than a full-fledged audit. Following are some of the things you get with expense validation:
- Ascertainment of one-time expenses vs. recurring expenses
- Review of third-party transactions, and compensation programs
- Analysis of expenses due to changes in management and/or personnel
Keep in mind that the above list is not exhaustive and there are many more things included in expense validation.

What Is Loan Accounting Validation?
Financing is required by all businesses at some point. Often, the financing is acquired in the form of a commercial bank loan. This loan needs to be repaid within a specified period and with interest. The transactions made in the repayment of the loan can be tracked and recorded using bookkeeping. This would typically involve recording the loan’s receipt, the interest payment over time, and the loan principal’s return at maturity. In case of amortization of the loan, the recording of the loan expense must reflect changes in outstanding loan balance over the term of the loan. This can be ensured with loan accounting validation for franchise restaurants.
