AISMA Doctor Newsline Spring 2021

I am pleased to introduce you to the Spring 2020/21 edition of AISMA Doctor Newsline, the newsletter for GPs and practice managers published by our membership organisation, the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants. Please click here to view.

AISMA Chairman Deborah Wood kicks off this issue with a commentary about the contract changes for GP practices coming into effect this month, and the impact they are likely to have on practice finances. In her opinion column later in the issue, Deborah touches on some of the other financial matters that practices will need to get to grips with over the coming months.

Specialist medical lawyers Alison Oliver and Ross Clark have written an article exploring the common causes of partnership disputes, and how they can be managed, while an analysis of important pension changes by tax expert David Walker will help explain what the recently published McCloud judgment might mean for GPs.

Practice management expert Fiona Dalziel has some tips for GPs on how they can better support practice managers in the months ahead and our Agony Accountant Abi Newbury answers some questions on the partnership premium, tax on unreceived income and access to unspent Covid-19 funding.

Finally, Kieran Hancock gives a post-Budget round-up and how the Chancellor’s measures could affect GP practices.

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.
