Dental practices

When we say we’re experts in tax for dentists, we mean it – we’re committed members of the National Association of Dental Accountants and Lawyers (NASDAL).

Dentistry has been going through turbulent times in the past few decades with ever-more complex regulations, tax law and pensions obligations.

Through years of working with dentists – a special area of expertise for Tom Briant – we’ve gained a wealth of practical experience. We’ve been at our clients’ sides as one change after another has hit them, finding ways to mitigate the impact and prevent tax being a distraction.

Competent advice is given on tax efficient trading structures and can help you decide whether, and when, to incorporate your sole trader or partnership dentistry business.

We will work with you to complete a satisfactory agreement on the purchase or sale of a practice.

If you operate within a partnership, we can support you with financial arrangements such as income sharing, and with optimising the relationship between partners and associates.

Pensions for dentists are a particularly complex area, especially for self-employed dentists contracting with the NHS. We can advise on contributions to the NHS pension scheme and superannuation.

When it comes to the tax implications of services provided to the public, we offer support with both Dental Practice Board (DPB) payments for NHS work and income from private dental plans.

In line with our general business advisory and accountancy services, we can also support your dental practice practically (payroll, bookkeeping, accounts production) or strategically. Our advisors understand industry best practice and can help you increase profit and plan for growth.

Our NASDAL membership gives us access to benchmarking information so we can compare your practice’s performance against national and regional averages.

We offer a free initial consultation for dentists – get in touch now to arrange a conversation.
