Understanding Business Operating Performance the Correct Way...

Onyx work with a range of accountancy services to the Dental Practices and Associates.

The team understands the different aspects of income derived in the dental sector with particular attention on accounting for NHS and Private income.  We also provide guidance in how to account for and lay out Dental Associate Schedules.

We support and advise in producing consistent and robust financial reports that not only provide you with performance updates but also with controls that help to support you and your business.  These include NHS control recs, associate balance recs, superannuation being the main areas.

Understanding and measuring Gross Profit, Net Profit and associated margins, getting clarity on breakeven points required to hit profit targets are common in successful and growing businesses in this sector.  Is your practice earning good profits, but should it be earning more..?

We enable Dentists and their management teams to make considered decisions with clarity that is gained through easily understood and explained management accounts and financial reporting.

For those considering dental acquisitions, we have experience in both the sales and purchases of practices and the work required for the due diligence ensure that financial performance is correctly benchmarked against similar practices, and that the correct amount of capital is in place to fund growth aspirations.

For practices operating Primary Care Trust contracts, we will advise on the correct technical accounting and process balancing required to identify and optimise areas of profitability, while also identifying those hidden “pockets of costs” that may lie masked by the false overall impression of financial well-being.
