Accountancy and tax

7th July 2020 by NASGP

If you need help with bookkeeping or anything to do with tax, it’s best to choose a specialist medical accountant who understands the specific concerns of GP locums. Liz Densley is a partner with Honey Barrett Medical Accountants and secretary of AISMA (the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants).

Here Liz answers some common tax-related questions. You can contact her for more information at liz.densley@honeybarrett.co.uk.

How can I claim my locum chambers fee for tax purposes?

Fees paid to your chamber are tax deductible. Your accountant will be able to give you personalised advice. Generally, the suggestion would be to show the fee on your tax return as either ‘other office costs’ or ‘admin support’ rather than ‘professional subs’ (which normally relates to membership of a professional body, rather than buying a specific service). So long as it is analysed consistently, it doesn’t really matter how it’s classified on your tax return.
