John knew he needed an accountant who could offer specialist business support, as he wanted to buy the practice where he was working. He met Linda to see if they were compatible and quickly knew that they would work well together.
“Linda looked at my tax return figures and could see that the business was a good one with potential for expansion.” Linda and her team, now including specialist dental accountant Nathan Poole, have guided John since then.
Dental practice loans
They advise him on any major financial decisions. He has taken out several loans, the most significant being to extend the practice onto the top floor. “Once again, Linda could produce figures and projections and she advised on the tax implications. She also handled the landlady to avoid any risk that she might put up the rent!”
Having recently sold his practice, John Miller Dental Care in the Headington area of Oxford, he looks back on his years as a practice-owner. “The thing that I appreciated most is that every year we would have a meeting, usually for about four hours. Linda, now joined by Nathan, understand the business intimately and have all the figures at their fingertips and help me make my business plan for the following year. It’s much more than just going to see your accountant. They provide a very personal touch.”
Responsive dental team
“I have now sold the practice, with Ross Brooke Dental support, obviously. The sale was complex and protracted but Linda was there to guide me throughout, always responsive. I have never contacted Linda or her team without getting a reply within 24 hours, sometimes immediately.”
