The venue is inclusive of a Night Club, Pub, & food service.
Established by the owner 16 years ago, in a suburb just outside of the CBD. It has an existing steady patronage, while identifying & promoting alternative venue usage opportunities to other/new potential clients.
The venue opens around 60 nights of a year, allowing for minimal owner involvement, yet high annual turnover & profits. The owner plans in advance, advertising/co-ordinating the function nights, & ensuring stock & staff are in place.
On an open night, the owner will open & close the venue, while staff will manage the clients & systems/processes; with an emphasis on entrance fees, music, drinks & food.
On a day preceding & post the event preparations, cleaning & re-stocking will be managed by the owner.
On the other days of the year, the owner unfortunately has to play golf & enjoy his time off !
The business controls all monies coming in through a computerised system & camera's, which reduces any chance of pilfering by staff. This system is then fed into a management control system tracking income & expenses on a night/event & monthly basis.
These management accounts are available monthly in arrears & have been utilised within this Report.
The gross income to Feb 2024 amounted to R9.3m excl VAT, with the Net Profit including the owners benefits totaling some R2.78m.
Feb 2024 results were similar to those of 2023.
A full list is available which includes every conceivable item required for such a business, with all paid-off, which were acquired at some R5m & presently insured at some R2.3m.
