GP Vacancies in Australia are for private contractors, so there are a number of differences for GPs who have come from health services such as the NHS.
Here is a quick summary incase you are considering a GP vacancy in Australia:
- You are only paid for the time you work, so you don’t receive paid sick or holiday leave. You are allocated a number of weeks you can take off each year. But you are not paid for this time.
- You are paid a percentage of billings. This is a percentage of the total income you generate for the practice. This will often be a mix of money from Medicare, and from the patient.
- You will need a good accountant. You are required to register as a company and for GST (Goods and services tax). The accountant will look after your reporting requirements, but you will need to set aside money for tax, as your employer will NOT take tax out of your wages
- Some GPs choose to take out income protection insurance to cover them incase of any major incident. The costs vary depending on your situation.
- Your employer won’t cover any of your education (continuing professional development) costs, you will need to cover them yourself. Your accountant will advise if these are tax deductible.
