For business owners

Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean to join Vetnovo?

Vetnovo will work with you to support your vision for your business, bringing you the benefits of being part of a larger group whilst retaining your practice’s identity and values.

Will Vetnovo dictate clinical protocols?

Absolutely not - we recognise that you and your team are the experts in how to provide the best clinical care to your patients. We will provide a wealth of resources and templates that have been developed in collaboration with our member practitioners, but at the end of the day you will always have the freedom to adapt and adopt these as and when you see fit. However, we do need to make sure all our practices are legally compliant, and make adjustments where they are not.

What if I made a lot of investments last financial year?

In case you made a lot of investments (e.g., equipment or facility upgrades) in the last financial year, we can consider taking an average of your EBITDA over the last 3 financial years instead of just the last year.

Will there be adjustments to my salary package if I work in my business?

There may be, yes. In particular, the salary you want can be set by you. While we expect you to take at least £75,000 / year in the UK as a salary, you are free to set a higher number. Any salary adjustments will have a corresponding adjustment in the EBIT figures (and hence the valuation of the business).

We take this approach to ensure that business owners are comfortable and financially secure to keep running their business, and if you decide to stop working in the business we can hire a Clinical Director on this salary.
