Accounting Solutions For Locum Optometrists
Many Optometrists work as locums at some stage in their career. This type of work often mixes salaried and self-employed work and therefore those accounts may present their own set of challenges. Our experience allows us to provide locums with a wealth of advice ranging from tax and National Insurance obligations to providing guidance and assisting those looking to form a limited company to offer their services.
Cottons are able to provide guidance for both established Locum Optometrists and those looking to start.
