Finance

Our finance team provides accounting services and financial support to the company as well as each of the Medivet practices. The Finance Department records payroll, inventory, accounts payable, receivable, fixed assets and all other financial elements. Our finance accountant reviews the records of each branch and department to determine the company’s financial position and establish if any changes are required to run cost-effectively. The department also develops financial reports and budgets as required. If you would like to reach our Finance Department, please contact our reception on 01923 470 000.

In May 1986 Asher Teper approached David Fluss to merge with the Hendon practice.
