Our experienced specialist dental experts have a deep knowledge of the needs of dental professionals.

There are many accountants out there so you might think why use a specialist in your sector? There are a number of good reasons why you should:

  • We understand the business, know what UDAs are, how you pay associates and the issues surrounding self-employment
  • In dentistry there are many laws and regulations that can restrict what you can do with your business. It’s important to have advisers that are aware of these so that you do not fall foul of them
  • We understand the NHS pension system and how it should be allocated between the principal and associates
  • Incorporation – aside from tax, there are a lot of issues to consider before incorporating and it’s important that you understand these before you go into it
  • Understanding practice values. If you are buying then we can look at the numbers and see if the target works for you then connect you with specialist solicitors and bankers in the dental sector. If selling then we can advise on preparing the business for sale and minimising the tax on the disposal.

"Dave McIver at UHY Hacker Young has been my accountant for several years, looking after the accounts for Bass Orthodontics and also my personal accounts and financial affairs.

Dave is one of the best professionals that I have encountered in a long business life. He is outstanding in respect of ability, efficiency, responsiveness and general helpfulness and in addition is able to call on his many contacts for related advice and assistance.

Without doubt, Dave is a most valuable ally in an increasingly complex and difficult business world. I could not recommend him more highly."

Dave is very talented in his field. His ability to see the bigger picture has meant his input into my business has been far greater than just accounting.

With his proactive approach, financial acumen and depth of dental knowledge, he enables me to see my practices 'real time' financial heartbeat. So when we need to adjust our path, I can do it quickly, smoothly and with confidence. I believe this is a key strength to developing a healthy business.

With Dave as part of our team I look forward to future opportunity rather than uncertainty."
