Valuation Strategies for More Tax-Effective Physician/Dentist Practice Transactions

When it comes to physician and dentist practice transactions, the classification of goodwill can have serious tax implications for the parties involved. Anticipated post-acquisition tax outcomes may dictate whether a transaction even occurs. Structuring a transaction successfully requires consideration of relevant law and the unique facts and circumstances surrounding the transaction, proper documentation, proper valuation support, and an understanding of the financial impact to all parties.

PYA Principal Jim Lloyd addressed this topic at the 2013 AICPA Healthcare Industry Conference in New Orleans, where he co-presented a session on “Valuation Strategies for More Tax-Effective Physician/Dentist Practice Transactions.”  The presentation emphasized the pros and cons of various deal structures and the potential tax savings available from allocating a portion of the purchase price to the physician’s professional goodwill and/or other intangible assets.   View the presentation below.
