Franchise & Royalty Audits

Verifying relationships

Accurate franchise and royalty payments clearly benefit you and your bottom line. They also benefit all of your individual franchise owners—assuring dollars for marketing and promotional programs are not siphoned away.

At the heart of StoneBridge Business Partners’ franchise and royalty compliance auditing is a thorough search for common under-reporting problems and other issues that can cut your profitability:

  • inefficiencies and mismanagement
  • accounting system weaknesses
  • employee theft
  • insufficient loss prevention programs
  • poor inventory control

We have audited hundreds of franchise owners, including many associated with Fortune 500 firms, over the last decade – from quick service restaurants to professional services, in the U.S. and abroad.

“The success of any franchised business depends largely on the ability of the franchise system and the franchisees to each meet the important responsibilities placed on them.”
