The more accurate the data a Franchisor receives from its Franchisees, the faster and better they can evaluate issues and develop solutions. Owning a franchise requires budget planning, day-to-day responsibilities, and proper personal and customer management skills.

Franchises can’t be treated like other businesses. They often have special accounting needs. For example, franchises have revenue reporting requirements for royalty calculation purposes, as well as other key performance metrics that must be tracked and reported back to the franchisor.


Owning and operating a franchise has a substantial number of built-in advantages, but as with all good things, there can be extra risks.


In order to own a franchise, the franchisee must pay the franchisor certain fees. The fees often include the rights to use the business’s brand, services, and products. The franchisee must pay an initial fee, like an entry fee, and then pay an ongoing royalty or other additional fees.

A franchisor sets guidelines for a franchisee, which can include special assessments or discounts granted. These can add or subtract from top-line sales, and affect Gross Sales on the Profit and Loss Statement. All of these details and numbers need to be reported properly—not just for franchise compliance reasons, but also IRS compliance.

A simple mistake in transaction records could result in the franchisor or franchisee being paid incorrectly.
