Optician practices have been a stable presence on the UK high street for decades. Eye care has been always being a high priority for individuals.
It’s even more so now that on average we are living longer. In a recent survey, The College of Optometrists found that individuals rank vision as their most important sense.
Around ¾ of the UK’s population have had some form of eye treatment, either through the wearing of glasses, or contact lenses or through corrective laser eye surgery.
The high demand for professional eye care creates a bright future for opticians throughout the UK.
As a specialist firm of accountants for opticians, for the last 15 plus years, we’ve been helping opticians with their accountants and tax affairs. As an ICAEW member, the opticians we work with know they are guaranteed an outstanding service that is delivered by our highly qualified team of Chartered Accountants and Tax Advisors.
Accountants for Locum Opticians:
The value that is placed on receiving expert eye care, has created a big demand for qualified opticians. This demand opens up differing options on how you can operate as an optician. If you want greater flexibility over the hours that you work, then working as a locum optician may be something for you to consider.
If you’re newly qualified or have been working for a practice for a while, locum work can offer you the chance to set your own rates of pay, choose the location where you work, and it can also present you with the opportunity to advance your skill set as you’ll be exposed to people with differing clinical needs in a shorter space of time.
“The greatest thing in the world is not where you stand but where you’ll end up.”
Arun Mehra, CEO, Samera Accountants.
Our experience has shown that one of the most tax efficient ways to work as a locum optician is by working through a limited company. If this is something you are interested in, our team of accountants who solely work with opticians can help you can handle this process for you, so you can focus on finding a placement and start earning money.
