Business Structuring & Setup
Choosing the correct business form is extremely important as it has many financial and legal implications. Medical professionals may operate as a sole trader, medical company, discretionary trust, or service business.
dnm group can advise what’s best for you based on your needs. Each structure attracts different associated risks and tax consequences. We’ll help you choose a structure for optimal tax efficiency, asset and estate protection, and succession. We can also facilitate business establishment, sometimes with our partner legal firms.
Periodic Management Accounts
Accurate records show you what is happening in your business. Preparing and analysing management accounts provides you with vital information such as budgeting and cash flow forecasts. They also identify and measure key performance indicators to warn of any anomalies.
Periodic management accounts can help you improve performance, identify trends, and compare projections with actual outcomes. They highlight changes in spending and income and also indicate how you may improve resource usage. Most importantly, they give you the information you need to move confidently forward towards greater success.
Annual Financial Statements
Financial statements need to follow accounting standards for transparency and accurate financial information. Owners and managers use financial statements to make important long-term business decisions. Prospective investors use financial statements for financial analysis, and lenders use financial statement to judge business health and risk.
We are chartered accountants with years of practical experience. We adhere to strict ethical standards and the Australian Accounting Standards.
GST, PAYG, payroll tax, superannuation contributions, client billings, expense claims and controls, and recordkeeping are complex. It can be difficult for medical professionals to comply with regulations if they don’t understand their intricacies.
dnm group takes care of your compliance obligations, so you can concentrate on your practice. We offer basic bookkeeping, tax returns, and tax accounting services to address all, or any of your needs.
You may want to handle all or part of your bookkeeping in-house, but you don’t know where to start or which business accounting software to use. We offer advice, software installation, support, and staff training as well as bookkeeping, including accounts payable and accounts receivable.

Estate & Succession Planning
Many times a doctor is the business, so it is very important you plan your estate, what happens to your assets, and who succeeds you if you want the business to carry on following your vision. You’ll want a smooth transition if you can no longer run your business or you want to do something else.
