Take Advantage of Year-End Offers

November 28, 2022

A new year is the perfect time to evaluate your goals, review your practice-building strategies, and find options for growth. Better still, it’s a great opportunity to look at your operations and review how taking advantage of savings through Section 179 and other year-end opportunities can help set the stage for success next year.

What is Section 179?
As business owners, it's important to take advantage of financial incentives that will benefit your clinic. For tax savings, timing is critical. Your clinic could be eligible for the Section 179 tax deduction for purchases made on capital equipment in 20221.

In short, Section 179 is a tax provision that allows write-offs for business items purchased throughout, which is why year-end is a crucial time to assess and purchase capital equipment or other large items your clinic will need to reach its goals in 2023.

With Section 179, you can spend up to $2,500,000 on capital equipment or technologies before the deduction is reduced on a dollar-by-dollar basis. Applied properly, it can lead to significant savings.

Speak to your accountant for more information on Section 179 opportunities for your practice and ask your Covetrus® account manager about year-end equipment specials and promotions.

Drive efficiency with software upgrades
Driving business growth is a balance between investing and managing costs. While a software upgrade might not be as visible as a new piece of equipment, innovative technology can speed up processes at your clinic, improving efficiency, client experience, and profitability.

Ensuring your clients attend their appointments and re-book regularly can be a core pillar to cash-flow management. A software upgrade to Covetrus Rapport can help automate your client communications across email, text, and phone.

Reducing the time staff require for administrative tasks can help to improve operational and financial efficiency.
