The Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants (AISMA) is a national network of over 75 accountancy firms providing expert advice to medical practices, sessional GPs and hospital doctors.

AISMA accountants currently advise more than 12,000 GPs in over 3,000 practices, as well as salaried GPs, locums, specialists and consultants.

To qualify as an AISMA accountant, members must meet demanding requirements set by the Association. These include regular peer reviews to ensure standards continue to be upheld. As a result, AISMA accountants are amongst the best advisers on the accounting, finance, taxation, practice management and pension issues affecting doctors today.

AISMA accountants are attuned to the constant changes faced by the medical profession and are a reliable source of information and advice on the impact of government legislation and policy decisions on primary care at practice, commissioning and individual GP level.

For doctors seeking to grasp the opportunities arising from the new era of healthcare commissioning, AISMA accountants provide expert advice on funding, financial modelling, contract documentation and negotiations with the PCT.

By pooling statistical data from medical practices across the UK and continually sharing and exchanging expertise and knowledge, AISMA accountants have unrivalled financial intelligence on what makes the most profitable, well-managed medical practice and how individual doctors can structure their business interests effectively to maximise pension benefits while minimising tax liabilities.

The following services are typically provided by AISMA accountants.
