AISMA Doctor Newsline – Summer 2017

Please click here for the Summer 2017 edition of AISMA Doctor Newsline, the newsletter for GPs and practice managers published by our membership organisation, the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants

GP practices need to start gearing up to new data protection rules coming in next year and this issue of AISMA Doctor Newsline opens with a quick guide from practice management expert Fiona Dalziel. Highlighting the key points practices need to get to grips with, this is essential reading if you want to keep on top of the new rules.

In the AISMA opinion piece, committee member Chris Howe warns higher earning GPs to watch out for a big tax hit coming their way in January 2018.

Another onerous new set of rules, the IR35 employment legislation, will affect many practices and doctors. Deborah Wood, AISMA vice-chairman, explains the implications and recommends turning to an AISMA accountant for specific advice in this area.

There’s a round-up of topical snippets from AISMA accountants to help practices keep on track during these busy times, and, finally, solicitor Rachel Birks has some top tips for preparing and responding to a CQC inspection.

I hope you find this edition of AISMA Doctor Newsline a helpful and practical source of information. If you would like to discuss any of the issues highlighted in the newsletter we would be pleased to talk to you.
