Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

At the heart of northern business since 1882

Healthcare update

Date: 15 March 2018 09:30 to 12:30

Type: Course, Tax

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

The course is aimed at helping accountants to assist their clients in responding to the changes on both strategic and detailed levels.

This session looks at updating the accountants’ knowledge on Doctors and Dentists. People can fall into the trap of thinking that dealing with the above two professions as being the same. Whilst there are similarities, this is fundamentally wrong – there are many differences and these can have considerable effects on the advice required. However, dealing with these professionals can be very rewarding. In this rapidly changing and increasingly competitive niche market, it is essential that accountants are aware of the most recent developments.

Accountants already acting for this type of client, who have at least a basic knowledge of the subject, and are looking for a technical update and refresher. It will also be suitable for those who would like an understanding of the specific problems encountered by this part of the health care sector.


• The course will look at the two niches on a compare and contrast basis and will not be 1 ½ hours on Doctors followed by 1 ½ hours on Dentists.

• A recap on the Health Professional & the NHS. We need to cover the changing relationship between the GP or the dentist and the NHS must be considered. Indeed, as the sector is under immense pressure, it is possible that the Government will bring forward new NHS contracts (pilots for a new dental contracts have gone on for years – these would clearly be analysed. However, the course will cover what is topical including:-

o The economy and the impact on contracts
o What structures can be awarded NHS contracts and which cannot!
o Successions and sales – the rules
o Goodwill implications arising from this
o Superannuation and pensions – including the interaction between superannuation and taxation
o Partnership deeds – the main specialist financial clauses
o Associates/performers/salaried positions
• Where are we with incorporation and other structures?
• Specific operational tax problems – IR35, intermediaries, VAT, mileage, personal expenses & HMRC
