Email tax service for dentists takes bite out of niche market

A firm of chartered accountants in Newcastle has found a novel way of getting its teeth into a particular niche market - by providing accountancy services to dentists.

Forrestals has launched ‘e-counting’, a scheme where dentists can chew over their tax affairs on-line from their own offices by logging on to the firm’s website.

For a fixed annual fee, self-employed dental associates can receive a comprehensive package which includes a completed tax return and expenditure account together with unlimited advice from the firm via email.

Forrestals already acts for more than 120 dental clients and the firm has a long association with the field – founder partner Suggett handled the financial affairs of more than 100 dentists during his time with Binder Hamlyn, now part of Arthur Andersen.

‘The beauty of the service is that it is geared to the clients’ needs – they can organise their financial affairs at a time to suit them, without disrupting their work and at a fixed fee. Clients also benefit from our benchmarking service, enabling them to judge their performance against industry standards,’ Suggett said.
