Whether you practise as a sole trader, within a ‘true’ partnership, or as part of an expense sharing partnership, our comprehensive support will help you to enjoy the best return from your investment in the business.

Annual compliance work

When we prepare your annual practice accounts and tax return we will ensure that you have plenty of time to plan for your tax liabilities. As specialist dental accountants we will also ensure that all relevant business expenses are claimed against your income. Our aim is always to help keep your tax bills as low as possible.


Hazlewoods is a member of the National Association of Specialist Dental Accountants and Lawyers (NASDAL). Our participation gives us access to a range of national dental practice statistics which can be used to benchmark your practice’s performance and identify areas for improvement.

Tax planning

We can review the tax structure of your practice, take your specific circumstances into account and provide appropriate tax planning advice.

Incorporation is one option. We have achieved five-figure reductions in the tax bills of some of our clients by reorganising their practices as limited companies. Depending on your circumstances this may be an option that is open to you.
