Claiming Expenses against Tax as a Doctor

Expense claims which reduce your tax bill

Unfortunately, the tax rules on expense claims for salaried GPs are nowhere near as generous as the expense claim rules enjoyed by self-employed GP principals.

The Revenue interprets the rules strictly. It is important that your accountant has a very good understanding of these rules.

Claiming for Motor expenses

As an employee, you can claim motor expenses using the fixed profit car scheme which allows a claim of 45p per business mile for the first 10,000 miles then 25p for each additional mile. You must be able to support the number of business miles claimed.

Claiming for Medical equipment

Any medical equipment purchased is deductible if it is intended to be used ‘wholly, necessarily and exclusively’ in the performance of the duties of your employment. However, there are exceptions and we can advise you accordingly.

Other expenses you can claim for

Traditionally HMRC has restricted the types of expenses that a salaried GP can claim to subscriptions and business mileage. However, a recent tax case, HMRC v Banerjee, has opened up the possibility to be able to also claim for course and training costs in certain circumstances.

How we can help you reduce your tax bill

We provide all our salaried GPs with a detailed checklist and give ongoing advice to ensure that the maximum allowable expenses are claimed each year.

What our clients say…

Dr C DeSouza, Salaried GP

I am a GP who works both in salaried and sessional roles. I have been with Nichols & Co for nearly three years. They have helped with my tax returns and can help with the range of different forms required in GP work. Danny and Shadmir have been accurate and efficient in their advice and guidance throughout. They have also been helpful and responsive when I have needed advice on the purchase of a car and also when looking to prove my income in order to get a mortgage. The system for providing income details and expenses is very easy to use and the summary they provide of how and when to pay your tax could not be clearer. I would recommend Nichols & Co to any colleague looking for an accountant with a good knowledge of GP work. 

Dr PS, Salaried GP

I have employed the services of Nichols and Co accountants since 2016 and I have found their services to be second-to-none.

Mr Shadmir Baig has been my accountant since 2016 and his expertise and timely assessments have really helped in tackling tax matters and my anxieties around them. The advice I have received is always accurate, simple to follow and the response time is simply excellent!

I have always been able to access services rapidly. The firm has an extremely organised reminder system so that deadlines are not breached and for someone juggling a busy job and parenthood this is a huge help. The firm exceeds itself when it comes to friendly and accurate advice. The staff are always extremely helpful.

I am absolutely thrilled with their services and would not hesitate at all to recommend this firm to friends and colleagues.

Dr Helen Butler, Salaried GP

As a newly-qualified, portfolio GP with lots of different workstreams, the prospect of a self-assessment tax return was rather overwhelming! Debra immediately put me at ease at our initial meeting. 5 years on, Debra and the team continue to make the whole process so simple and are always friendly and approachable. I have recommended Debra to many colleagues over the years. A fantastic service. Thanks Debra!

Dr Emma Agyekum, Salaried GP

I am a salaried GP who owns a rental property and locums and Nichols have looked after all aspects of my taxation for several years. They have provided me with valuable advice for which I am extremely grateful and respond to queries competently, thoroughly and efficiently. They have taken the time to educate me on various financial matters which makes filing my self assessment tax return almost effortless. I am always impressed by how speedily they respond to my emails and submit tax returns which enables me to better plan for the financial year ahead. I would confidently recommend their professional, efficient, friendly and reliable service to anyone.
