The hospitality sector in puerto rico
University of Puerto Rico Rio Piedras Campus
The proposed research is to gather the financial information from the Hospitality Sector in Puerto Rico. The data is gathered from public records available from the Department of Revenue (Hacienda), Department of State, Department of Tourism and the Institute of Statistics of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The tax fillings will also be requested of large, medium and small Hostelries in Puerto Rico through investor relations and/or accessed from their existing corporate sites. The CoPI will be assisted by students recruited as research assistants to collect copies of their tax filings. 5 years of tax filling will be collected for each hotelier on Island. This data will be collected, organized and analyzed in compliance with the guidelines established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and industry standards before it is transferred to a data base for statistical analysis and production of financial ratios.
