Changing the CQC Registration over is a crucial part of any transaction both to ensure that you are legally registered correctly and to ensure that the timings of these new registrations do-not hold back the transaction because you do-not have the appropriate documentation at the right time, particularly where NHS England are concerned;

  • Did You Know the CQC Registration Process can now take up to Eleven Weeks in some areas before a fit person interview is even arranged?
  • The CQC Form Validation process is incredibly tight and you have to explain N/A answers like why Food Safety isn’t relevant to dental practices.
  • A kin to a game of Snakes & Ladders if you make one error on the form you have to re-submit the entire application.
  • You need your CQC Counter-signed DBS Checks returned before you can submit an application and this too can take a number of weeks.
  • The CQC Forms have recently changed and now require even more information.
  • A typical CQC application requires at least seven different forms to be completed

To counter this we have been offering all of our clients support with their CQC Applications for the last year and have now teamed up with the BDA Benevolent Fund and Bridge2Aid to offer this as a not-for-profit service for those who are buying or selling a dental practice but not using Dental Elite or DE Finance

The fee for this process is £395 incl VAT of which Dental Elite take an Admin Fee of just £100 with the remaining proportion paid to the VAT Office and your chosen charity. This means for every application (which includes the Core Application, Registered Manager Application, Statement of Purposes and De-Registration Form) your chosen charity will benefit from a donation of £229.16.

This service is still free for all clients either buying, selling or financing through Dental Elite.

When it comes to selling your dental practice, utilising the advice and guidance from experienced professionals can make all the difference. With an honest and friendly team, Dental Elite have been making a name for themselves by offering helpful and astute advice to dental professionals who are looking to move on. “We have found Dental Elite to be a very efficient, caring and friendly organisation,” says a happily retired dentist from Ashurst, Southampton. “They were always there, if and when we needed them. "They were always a pleasure to deal with – in fact, we are missing the rapport with them now the practice has been sold! “Our slogan for Dental Elite would be: ‘They are definitely the best, ahead of the rest’.” If you are also thinking about selling your practice and want pragmatic and practical advice from a team with over a century of hands-on experience in the dental sector, get in contact with Dental Elite today.
