Maidstone Therapist's Network November 2019

This meeting and the below blog were written back in the pre-covid days, Nov 2019, when we could still meet in person!  Now that we are finally getting back to some form of normality and in person meetings are resuming – have a read below so you know what to expect.

Nov 2019

Today we all gathered together to collaborate with each other in some of the common things that frustrate us in running a therapy business.  It was our business surgery day.

The main topic for the conversation this month was the dreaded Tax Returns and being financially responsible. There were two student/newly launching therapists in the room who were looking for information for things to do when you start out.  Happily we happened to have 3 ex book-keeper/accountant therapists In the room on-hand to advise!

We discussed setting up, what an accountant is NOT responsible for.  Whether you should be sole trade or a company and if you can do your own returns.  As well as how these can affect benefits and tax credits.  We also answered questions about time-keeping, organising your day and setting expectations and boundaries with clients.

Our business surgeries are held quarterly and are a brilliant way to connect with a colleague for some tailored group mentoring.
