    Thrive as a Self-Employed Locum

    Self-employment for locums offers flexibility and potential tax benefits. We provide expert advice on managing your financial responsibilities and maximising deductions.

    Self-Employment Tax Management

    Our services streamline the self-employment process for locums, from registering with HMRC to efficiently handling tax returns and national insurance obligations.

    Advantages of Self-Employment

    Self-employment allows locums to claim a wider range of business expenses, potentially reducing tax and national insurance payments compared to PAYE salary arrangements.

    • Comprehensive expense claim guidance.
    • Streamlined self-assessment tax return process.
    • Assistance with NHS Pension Forms A & B.
    • Tailored advice for tax and national insurance planning.
    • Support for transitioning to self-employed status.
    • Insights on working with agencies as a self-employed locum.

    Personalised Self-Employment Strategy

    For locums embarking on or navigating self-employment, we provide personalised support, ensuring you are well-informed about your tax obligations, superannuation contributions, and optimal financial practices. We guide you in setting aside the right amounts for tax and national insurance, ensuring a smooth financial journey.

    We have received an excellent service since we moved to Nichols & Co. The transition has been the most hassle-free and transparent. They are always very helpful with any queries you might have and have a very good working knowledge of General Practice and are keenly aware of the challenges Practices face within the changing environment of the NHS.
    We have been very impressed by the way Nichols & Co continue to deliver the range of services they provide from Accounts to Tax and NHS Pension advice.

    At the year-end meetings, the accounts are presented in an understandable format without any unnecessary jargons. We have found Practice consultation and advice on Practice as well as personal tax matters from Nichols & Co specifically helpful.
    We would not hesitate to recommend them to other GP Practices.

    Dr William Jasper, GP Partner

    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 C DeSouza, Salaried GP

    I’ve been with Nichols and Co for nearly 10 years with Debra being my accountant. I first contacted them when I received letters for tax arrears due to the wrong tax codes being applied during my hospital jobs.

    Debra sorted this matter out and has always provided helpful and honest advice regarding tax matters. She has also helped my wife with her tax returns. I would definitely recommend their services for accounting matters with a special interest in helping doctors with their tax affairs. They are approachable, helpful and efficient.
