GP Practice Accountants
The healthcare sector operates like no other, and so we have recognised the need for its own distinct set of financial and accountancy services. Specialist GP Accountants at RMT offer medical professionals advice and guidance that is tailored to the unique monetary and legislative environment in which healthcare industry workers operate. They can help you make the most professionally, personally and financially of the opportunities and challenges you face.
We act for over 100 GP Practices Accounts and we are founder members of the UK’s Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants (AISMA).
Our specialist dedicated team offers a knowledgeable, responsive and proactive service on a fixed fee basis.
Services we offer include;
GP Practice Accounts – We can prepare your annual accounts in detailed formats incorporating the income streams of the new GP contract for both PMS and GMS practices.
Benchmarking practice performance – We will undertake an analytical review of the practice results in comparison with the national profile of GPs. Benchmarking your accounts against national statistics can help you gauge the financial performance of your practice and identify possible areas where you can move the practice forward.
Annual certificates of pensionable profits – We can offer advice and prepare the General Medical Practitioner’s annual Certificate of Pensionable Profits.
Partnership Agreements – We will provide advice regarding the inclusion of clauses on profit allocation, incoming and outgoing partners, property, taxation (we are the experts in this field) and other medical issues.
Surgery Premises and Partnership Capital – We’re happy to offer advice on property capital and partnership capital charges.
Partnership disputes- We can offer expert, objective help regarding any difficult areas arising in partnership disputes.
Tax Planning – We offer advice on planning to minimise liabilities, early warning of ‘tax time bombs’ and overlap relief issues for new and retiring partners.
Locum cover – We can help you answer questions such as ‘What level of cost is appropriate?’, ‘Are internal locums acceptable?’ and ‘Is PCT Locum reimbursement available?’
Premises – We will work with chartered surveyors to offer advice on the value of buildings. We also have strong links with appropriate bodies where funding may be needed.
Personal Financial Planning – We can assess your needs as a partner in practice and as an individual. Indeed we can offer objective advice on everything from income protection and critical illness cover to investment management and inheritance tax planning.
Education and Information – We can attend practice management meetings able to help you keep your finger on the pulse of what is happening in the Medical world. We publish all AISMA technical publications (including the annual survey into GP’s accounts and local statistics by Strategic Health Authority).
IT Consultancy – We offer access to IT consultants through our sister company, RMT Technology. They will ensure that you receive your accounting and business information in the most efficient way possible. For example, if you’re looking to change your accounting system, we can guide you through this process and train you to use the new system.
