8 P&L Account - Detailed Pages 8-13 What does it tell you? Main income streams Main costs Detailed comparison with previous year Movements should mirror changes to GMS/PMS contract Ability to benchmark individual lines to improve practice performance

9 Standard GMC Contract Global sum payments are a contribution towards the contractor’s costs in delivering essential & additional services including staff. Essential services in core hours 8am – 6.30pm “registered patients and temporary who are, or believe themselves to be ill ……….” Additional Services: “registered patients and temporary provided with cervical screening, contraceptive services, vaccinations and immunisations, childhood vaccinations, child health surveillance, maternity medical services & minor surgery”

GMS - £73.56pp (2014 £66.25) MPIG – removal over 7 years PMS – contracts under review Enhanced services – most renewed for 1 year QOF – reduction in points 900 to 559 Seniority – withdrawal by 2020

12 Balance Sheet Page 7 What does it tell you? Assets of the practice – do they own a property? Liabilities of the practice – who do they owe money to? How the practice is financed – does this fit comfortably with you? How much you will need to pay in ASSETS – LIABILITIES = NET WORTH OF PARTNERSHIP Split between the partners

13 Property Ownership Page 14 – capital account BUY IN = % based on VALUE OF PROPERTY less LOAN Buying 50% share £32,500 =(£100,000 - £35,000)x50% Buying 1/3 share £21,666 =(£100,000 -£35,000) x1/3 Investment in the bricks and mortar Get the property valued Who pays for the valuation? How will you finance the buy in – savings? Loan? Timing of buy in

14 Current Account Page 15 Working capital – day to day funds Practice needs cash to pay bills before it gets paid for work done All partners must therefore contribute to working capital / leave money in their current accounts Available to draw when practice cash flow allows Closing balance is undrawn profits Can increase or decrease depending upon proportion of profit drawn in the year, also with tax and SA paid/due. Already taxed earnings Will be paid out if leave

15 Loans To Buy In Property and /or working capital loans Banks still keen to lend to GPs Historically viewed GPs as relatively low risk Preferential interest rates Secured or unsecured lending Use healthcare specialists at the banks Increase in form filling - affordability Can take time to arrange Tax relief on interest

16 Key Questions To Ask Copy of the most recent accounts Copy of the partnership agreement Practice list size - benchmarking Which partner are you replacing? –How many sessions did they work? - Did they have any specialisms? How much could I earn? –How are profits split between partners? Who pays the tax? –When will the first bill be? –How much will it be?

17 Key Questions To Ask (2) Which expenses does the practice meet? - National insurance - Subscriptions - Insurances, prof indemnity Drawings –How much? –Paid monthly in advance or arrears? Practice buy in –How much? –How is it calculated – property valued? –When will I be expected to buy in – 6 mths?

30 Tax Gets Complicated

31 Tax Example 2014/15 payment profile is as follows: 31/01/151 st POA 14/15£8,613 31/07/152 nd POA 14/15£8,613 Tax due 31 January 2015 Bal 13/14£17,226 1 st POA 14/15 £8,613 Total Due£25,839

39 Earnings From Companies Salary –Basic salary Dividends –Taxed on recipient –Must go into their bank account Tax savings if dividends are paid to a BR tax payer, spouse or child over 18 yrs

40 Mileage And Expenses Cars generally run privately due to BIK rules Reclaim business mileage at fixed rates 45p/25p Other expenses o Subs o Medical indemnity – personal or Co. name o Locum insurance – Co. name o Telephone – contract in Co. name o Broadband – business proportion

41 Statutory Accounts Filed within 10 months of year end Corporation tax due 9mths and 1 day after year end Corporation tax return due 12 months after accounting year end File annual return File forms for changes to directors and shareholders etc Additional costs associated with statutory requirements.
