More Take Home Pay For Locum Vets & Veterinary Nurses

As well as offering unlimited accounting support, as part of our service your expert veterinary accountant will provide you with tax planning advice to help maximise your take home pay by improving tax efficiency.

As a Locum Vet, you can work as a sole trader or contract through your own limited company. There are fewer obligations and responsibilities when you work as a sole trader. This is because there are less monitoring and regulatory requirements for personal ownership than with limited company ownership. There are many advantages, however, of working through your own limited company.

Limited companies can have a significant advantage in terms of remuneration and tax efficiency. As a Locum Vet working through your own limited company, you can pay yourself through a combination of salary and dividends. Tax rates on dividends are lower than income tax paid through salary or as a Sole-trader and as Limited Company Accountants, we provide tax advice on how to structure your remuneration so tax savings can be made. Gorilla Accounting are experts in advising on these tax-efficiencies to increase take home pay for Locum veterinary professionals.

Use our Salary & Dividend Calculator for an indication of how much you could increase your take home pay by paying yourself through a combination of salary and dividends.

As a limited company you will also benefit from limited liability. This means that your personal assets such as your house, car and investments should be protected from creditors if your business encounters financial difficulties and incurs debt. The limited company is treated as a separate legal entity so your personal assets are secure.

Every locum’s circumstances are unique and we can advise you on whether incorporating is right for you based on your situation. If you go limited, we can incorporate your business for £100 +VAT and we can usually have your limited company set up the very same day.
