Learning outcomes

Webinar 1 One of the key financial aspects of commencing in business as a dentist is what entity or entities should be used when starting your financial journey. In this session we will elaborate on the typical structures that can be utilised as a dentist now and into the future. The complex world of taxation will (unfortunately!) be present throughout your working career and beyond. We will work through all the relevant taxes that you need to be made aware of, the many different tax rates across various structures and what tax minimisation strategies can be employed throughout your career as a dentist, whether in someone else’s practice or your own. Webinar 2 A necessary yet important part of your financial future will be DEBT! This session will explain the different types of debt you will come across in your career as well as how to structure your loans for maximum flexibility. The session will also cover strategies on tax-deductible debt and how to purchase your first home. The power of compounding is a must to understand when thinking about investing and creating wealth. This session will cover basic investment fundamentals and the various types of investments, the risk/return trade off and touch on some key investment thematics in the current global environment. Webinar 3 This detailed session will cover off on the key differences and financial considerations for dentists when negotiating contracts with their first 'employer'. Importantly, it will cover the grey area of employees vs contractors but also consider the dentist under a Services and Facilities Agreement. There is a difference and that has recently been tested by the courts and all dentists should be aware of outcomes. The ever-changing rules to Superannuation have made some members complacent as to the benefits of utilising Superannuation for wealth creation. This session will unpack the basics of Superannuation as a wealth-creation vehicle, advantages of Superannuation, what is an SMSF, and when can you have one and what are the differences between the various Superannuation choices.
