The landscape has changed significantly for practitioners contemplating an appropriate structure for their professional practice. This paper reviews the questions which you should consider, including:
- CGT changes announced in the budget: what impact will these have?
- service trusts: how have they survived their broadside?
- PSI regime: what are the implications?
- professional liability exposure: what is the real position?
- goodwill: what are the issues?
- part time or more flexible arrangements: can these be catered for?
- departure and arrival of ‘partners’: how do you cater for these?
