SIAL Healthcare Accountants are renowned specialists in advising dispensing opticians, optometrists and eye care professionals on all aspects of finance, taxation and especially VAT related matters.
Based in London and covering the whole of the UK, we offer a unique package of services to opticians and practice owners, delivered with a personal service.
Specialist VAT advice for Opticians
Our in-depth knowledge and understanding of the complex and ever-changing VAT rules for optical products mean you’ll never miss a deadline, and never miss a trick.
Knowing what is exempt, and what attracts standard rate VAT is complicated, but our in-house VAT consultant is a former HMRC inspector and has over twenty years’ experience in dealing with opticians’ VAT, during which time he has helped hundreds – if not thousands – of practices to claim millions of pounds in VAT refunds.
We Wrote the Book for Opticians
The founder of SIAL Healthcare Accountants, and still our Managing Director, Usman Sial, recently published a definitive guidebook for opticians, entitled, “How to start and run a successful Optical Practice”.
This book is now available for opticians, and has been critically acclaimed by many optometrists, opticians and industrial specialists as an excellent guide for new and existing optical practices.
“This book will give you a comprehensive overview of the accounting system for a successful optical practice.”
Services for Locum Opticians
SIAL Healthcare Accountants also provides tailored accounting services to locum opticians and optometrists, whether newly qualified or experienced. As employed or independent contractors, we provide them with accounts and taxation advice and support; if and when they decide to start their own practice in the future, we help them to make their dream reality.
Furthermore, we are members of the ICAEW Healthcare Group to stay ahead of the latest changes in the optical and healthcare sectors.
