Purchasing a medical practice premises is a big investment into your financial future.

Do you have the right team in place? Don't build your business on the wrong foundations.

The big question – who do you need?

In addition to a good project manager and a builder who specialises in medical fit-outs, the following professionals will provide you with a great head start to ensure your practice's success from the very start.


Your accountant should be your first point of contact. They will have the best understanding of your financial position and will be able to help you understand what is possible for your unique circumstances. A good accountant can provide advice on appropriate business structuring and can analyse the taxation and cashflow impacts when transitioning to premises ownership

The entity you establish to purchase your premises is important and can sometimes be overlooked by medical professionals. This is why seeking advice from your accountant is critical, and why an accountant with specialisation in the medical industry is a great advantage.

Having an expert on your side to help you understand the complexities of your business structure, service agreements and contracts, how income is received, asset protection and tax minimisation strategies, and the potential liabilities you need to service will save you time and money in the future.

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to purchasing your practice premises, there are many factors to consider. Medical professionals understand the importance of consulting the right specialist, so make sure you do the same when it comes to your advisor.
