Locum work – setting yourself up

audio available
Written by bongiorno group

Many doctors at some stage in their career take up the opportunity to do locum work. It involves working at different hospitals for short periods of time, and can provide flexibility and higher hourly rates. There are different ways to get paid as a locum doctor, including working as a visiting medical officer or going through a locum agency.
However, taxation and GST are important considerations for locum work, as doctors may need to register for GST and manage their own tax obligations. The Bongiorno Group’s Associate Director Mitch McKeown and Consultant Matt Homewood discuss those issues and what expenses can and can’t be deductible.
