We act for many GP practices, GP locums and Hospital Consultants across Scotland providing a partner-led service that is proactive and specifically tailored to the needs of our medical clients.
As well as dealing with the compliance based services such as preparation of accounts, tax returns and superannuation certificates in a timely and efficient manner, we also provide additional services and information to help Doctors better understand their financial figures and minimise potential tax liabilities. This is done by providing regular bulletins aimed specifically at topical issues for Doctors and providing annual benchmark reports on how the finances of the Practice compare with the averages of other practices.
The specialist areas that we have advised on include the following:
• Surgery developments and refinancing of practice premises
• Advice on partnership agreements, (in particular financial clauses)
• Comparative benchmarking
We agree a fixed fee with all our medical practice clients in advance of the work being performed and many choose to spread the cost over a year by monthly direct debit payment. The team operate in all our offices allowing us to provide local support for our medical practice clients.
Our services are built around our four main commitments to our medical practice clients. These are to:
• Provide the Practice with meaningful financial statements
• Review the financial statements to ensure maximum profitability
• Provide proactive advice to the partners and the Practice manager on financial taxation and consultancy matters
• Develop a close working relationship with the Practice
