Nine tasks for sessional GPs to prioritise before the end of the tax year 2020/21

How can it be the end of another tax year? The pandemic seems to have sucked us all into some sort of time, space anomaly where 12 months seem to drag and flash by at the same time. But the end of the tax year it is, and we must check we are in a good state to wave goodbye to 2020/21 and hello to 2021/22. We know you are all short on time so here is a quick guide to the things to tick off before it’s too late.

1 Use your ISA allowance

Everybody has an ISA allowance of £20,000 for the 2020/21 tax year. Your children have their own allowance of £9,000 each p.a. too. If you aren’t aware of the different types and want to get up to speed quickly why not take a look at our recent ISA article: Are you up to speed with ISA’s >

Of course, you do have another ISA waiting for you in the next tax year but if you don’t use this one you WILL lose it.

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
