From the expertise and experience of the corporate and regional level, the properties are given oversight and direction in all accounting disciplines.
TPG uses the Uniform System of Accounts for the Lodging Industry 10th edition to establish standardized reporting formats and account classifications in the preparation and presentation of their financial statements.
TPG properties follow established company polices and reporting requirements. The policies and procedures ensure all revenues are captured and reported properly, payroll and expenses are kept within budget and forecast, and property assets are protected. Time and attendance is monitored daily to the established schedules. The Time and Attendance system limit punches to the associates' schedule.
The system is enhanced with Biometric detection to limit only the employee to punch in or out. Labor schedules are based on forecasted revenues each week and are adjusted during the week if forecasted demand changes. Declining balance expense checkbooks are used to keep expenses from exceeded budget and forecast. An on-line purchasing program has been instituted which requires on-line approval by the Director of Finance and General Manager prior to the order being placed and the hotel has established purchase order limits. If these limits are exceeded, Regional and or Corporate approval is needed. TPG uses an extensive internal audit program provided by a third party to ensure TPG Policies and Procedures are adhered to.
