Strategic accounting for a local clinic

Strategic accounting for a local clinic

We assisted a client in Melbourne's northern suburbs with their newly established osteopathy clinic.

We first advised them on the right business structure to ensure they created the best foundations from the beginning.

We set them up with the correct corporate structure to enable them to grow sustainably, whilst minimising tax and also providing personal asset security.

Our in-house lending team also assisted with obtaining finance for equipment at the best rates.

Finally, we offered tax advice that allowed the owner to access instant asset write-offs on equipment, to help reduce tax.

Frequently asked questions

What items are GST applicable, and which are not?

All services provided directly to a customer by an osteopath are classed as GST-free income.

The majority of expense items incurred by an osteopath will have GST attached, but each should be checked as part of a GST audit when quarterly BAS is completed.

Are my staff classified as contractors or employees?

Staff need to be classified correctly as either a contractor or an employee. Contractors need particular attention, as you need to consider when a contractor can be regarded as a common law employee.

If a contractor is regarded as such, you may be liable for Super, Workers Compensation, Payroll Tax and Leave entitlements.

Generally, if a contractor has their own business entity and works for multiple businesses (not just your practice), they will likely meet the classification as a contractor.

What structure is right for my practice?

This depends on your growth plans and your personal situation. For an owner-run practice that you intend to keep this way, a family trust may be best form of trading entity.

If an osteo practice plans to scale (potentially with multiple owners), a company or unit trust structure could be the best option.
