    Frequently Asked Questions

    We understand that you might have lots of questions when looking for an accountant. For this reason, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions for you, which we hope will be helpful. However, if you have any further questions, please contact us.

    What exactly is a Type 2 Form?

    The Type 2 Form is utilised by NHS Pensions to verify that locum GPs have made the proper pension contributions for all their salaried roles. It’s a statutory requirement for maintaining accurate NHS Pension Scheme records.

    Who needs to complete a Type 2 Form?

    If you’re a salaried GP in a surgery, a long-term fee-based or self-employed GP working for a GP surgery, or a GP who solely works for an out-of-hours provider, you’ll need to complete a Type 2 Form.

    What are the consequences of not completing a Type 2 Form annually?

    Failing to complete the form can lead to your pension records being out of date, which could affect your pension entitlements upon retirement.

    I’ve never completed a Type 2 Form; should I be concerned?

    Many GPs are not aware of the form. However, there’s been an amnesty allowing you to submit retrospective Type 2 Forms back to 2009/10. It’s important to take action to ensure your pension contributions are accurate and complete.

    Can locums working through an umbrella or personal service company use the Type 2 Form?

    No, locums in this situation cannot contribute to the NHS pension scheme via the Type 2 Form but may contribute to private pension schemes.

    How can Nichols Medical Accountants assist with the Type 2 Form?

    Our experienced medical accounting team can guide you through the relevant regulations and ensure your NHS pension record is correctly updated, which is crucial for receiving your full pension benefits.

    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.
