Accounting for General Practitioners is totally different and you need someone who has experience in that field to make sure that your accounts are presented properly, grossing up all reimbursements. Your accounts should give you the detailed analysis of income and expenses you need to make good decisions for your practice. If not give us a call and see if we can help.
We act for a large number of general practitioners, hospital consultants and locums. While our services to our consultant clients involve in the main the preparation of their income tax returns including their self employed consulting income, the services to GP's are varied. We can tailor a package to suit your own needs. We can handle everything from the bookkeeping and payroll upwards to the completion of your accounts or you can opt to carry out various of the functions in house leaving us to deal with the annual accounts and tax returns.
Every GP has to submit an annual pensionable earnings statements and we help with this. We review what is being deducted now to ensure that, if there is an under or over payment, that you are aware of it and can take steps to sort it out.
