Dental Accountants in Norwich

At Eastfield Accountants, we understand the unique challenges and opportunities within the dental industry. Especially of the growing specialisation and emphasis on cosmetic dentistry.

The importance of a skilled accountant cannot be overstated when it comes to the success of your dental practice. By entrusting us with your bookkeeping and annual accounting needs, you can take confident strides towards shaping the future you envision, including the realisation of your dreams of establishing or managing a thriving private practice.

One common query from dentists is, "How can I build a successful practice?" Our advice remains consistent: treat your practice as you would any other business, built upon a solid foundation of operational excellence.

Dental Accountants in Norwich

What dental accountancy services do we offer?

Accounts for dental associates

We conduct thorough assessments to identify tax-saving opportunities, ensuring you benefit from all available reliefs and exemptions relating to your circumstances.

Dental practice accounts

Plan ahead with our proactive tax planning strategies that consider the timing of asset sales and the reinvestment of proceeds, avoiding unnecessary financial pitfalls and optimising your tax position.

Payroll for dentists

Managing your payroll in-house is demanding and complex, with changing factors like overtime, sickness, and unpaid leave. Timely incorporation of these elements is vital for employee satisfaction and cash flow stability.

Outsourcing payroll to us is cost-effective and frees up your management time. Trust Eastfield Accountants to stay ahead of changes, ensuring accurate and well-planned wage bills.

In every case, our advisors are equipped to provide bespoke tax planning that aligns with your property portfolio and financial goals.

Dentist and dental associate expenses

Tax relief is crucial for dental business owners as it refunds money spent on essential business expenses, such as equipment purchases, professional services, and staff training. By claiming these deductions, you can lower your taxable income, reduce your tax payments, and enhance profitability.

Furthermore, tax relief can unlock opportunities for dental practice growth and investment. Expenses like upgrading equipment or expanding your clinic may qualify for tax relief, allowing you to recoup a part of your expenditure through deductions. This enables you to reinvest in your business without bearing the full financial load.

Buying a dental practice

Owning a dental practice, whether through acquisition or starting anew, can be a profitable path to secure your financial future. Private practices yield higher profits than NHS ones, providing a stable platform to leverage your expertise into long-term ownership and investment.

Dental accountancy FAQs

Can dentists claim back VAT?

Most dental services are VAT-exempt, meaning you can't reclaim VAT on related expenses. But, for non-health-related items subject to standard VAT rates, you might be eligible for partial refunds if your practice provides both exempt and taxable services.

Are dental treatments tax deductible?

In the UK, if the medical or dental treatment or insurance you provide is not exempt, you must report it to HMRC and may need to deduct and pay tax and National Insurance. For further details, please refer to the HMRC website.

My practice is not located in Norwich. Does this pose an issue?

Not in the slightest! The majority of our clients are not Norwich residents, and we cater to clients from across the UK. Email and phone communication work the same and will not lower the quality of service you can expect from us.
