Medico Planning

Medico Planning Author: Synthia Sekar At Amega Financial Planning, we understand the importance of managing your finances from the moment you start earning an income. This is especially true if you are in the field of Medicine and Health Services. Most doctors and healthcare professionals, after graduate school, will be developing their skills to specialise or acquiring some years of experience before they think of building their financial assets. At the same time, they may be acquiring significant debt. It the early stages of your career as a medical practitioner, it is advisable to take control of your finances and protect your position. You can:
  • Protect your income and loved ones through appropriate insurance cover. Individuals who are working in healthcare may experience a high level of stress and may get sick more often.
  • Establish the appropriate tax structure to distribute your income perhaps via a company or trust. Seek financial advice either from a tax accountant, financial adviser or both.
  • Build assets by:
  • buying a practice
  • buying equipment for a practice
  • setting up a practice for specialised health services
  • setting up a Self-Managed Super Fund.
