Veterinary business advice, Veterinary benchmarks and KPI’s


Specialist Veterinary Accountants, Veterinary Business advisors, Benchmarks and KPi’s

Why do we do what we do?

At APL Accountants, we are passionate about the veterinary business and veterinary benchmarks. We have worked as clinicians, owned our own veterinary practices and realise the unique challenges faced by the profession. So we are not an accounting firm that is simply interested in your tax compliance – WE WANT TO SEE YOUR VETERINARY BUSINESS DO BETTER! So if your only interest is tax compliance, we are not the firm for you.
However if your interest is in getting the best team to help you run your veterinary business more efficiently and profitably then you have come to the right place. We want to be involved in your business processes. We want to help you establish clinical protocols that ethically help your business do better AND service your clients and patients better – and we love doing this.

How do we do it

Our unique point of difference to any other accounting firm is that we really understand your veterinary business, right down to the diagnostic, clinical and surgical work. We only work with veterinary businesses, we do not take on non-veterinary clients. We visit and analyse veterinary practices every single day. As a result we KNOW what makes a practice profitable and what does not.

We have KPI’s and benchmarks for almost anything you do in your veterinary business and therefore can assess your performance and the performance of your team with clarity and accuracy.

Essentially we are your market researchers, looking at business processes in practices, analysing practice financials on a daily basis and attending veterinary CPD meetings on a regular basis. This has allowed us to gather invaluable intellectual property from many sources – intellectual property that we share with YOU.

What do we do?

We are primarily veterinary surgeons just like you. This is what we did before we became accountants. This allows us to help with a lot of your problems, leaving you to do what you love – running your business in an ethical manner and servicing your clients and patients to the best of your ability. The best part of it is that by concentrating on best practice and client service, your business becomes more profitable – it’s a win-win situation.
Working with us you will find yourself in a situation where:

  •  you are on top of your finances on a monthly basis,
  •  you have someone to turn to if you need some business or clinical advice,
  •  you will have regular meetings and strategic planning,
  •  you will be in control of your cash flows,
  • you will be dealing with your staffing and staff training more efficiently and getting team members to ‘buy in’ to your vision,
  • your tax affairs will be in order

and so much more.

Benchmarking and KPi’s

We have one of the most comprehensive and accurate KPI and benchmarking processes for veterinary businesses in Australia. And better yet, we can supply you your performance KPI’s and Benchmarks on a WEEKLY basis using our specialised software, Profitdiagnostix, that automatically connects to your practice management system.
