Roy is the Scottish Chairman of NASDAL (National Association of Specialist Dental Accountants and Lawyers), working closely with the organisation to promote excellence within the dental sector and provide specialist professional services to help practice owners to thrive.

He brings over 30 years’ experience of advising firms in the sector on compliance and transactional work and this week, hosted an event at Johnston Carmichael’s Edinburgh office to launch the first Scottish version of NASDAL’s annual benchmarking report reflecting the finances of dental practices and dentists for the most recent tax year.

Roy said: “I feel very fortunate to join, Johnston Carmichael, a firm that aligns with both my personal and professional values.

“It is also a source of great pride that I will be working with local businesses to help them flourish. By providing both compliance and advisory services, Johnston Carmichael is well placed to act as a one-stop shop helping trading businesses meet their regulatory requirements while also being proactive in their business and tax affairs.

“As Head of Dental, my goal is to ensure dental professionals have access to trustworthy and accurate advice to support their businesses and to understand how changes in the industry will affect them.”

John Gold joins the firm as Business Advisory Director, bringing over 25 years of experience as a Chartered Accountant and chartered tax advisor. John holds a wide variety of specialisms, with a direct interest in agriculture, professional services and owner managed businesses, providing first rate business commercial advice inclusive of tax planning and compliance.

He will also have a role in delivering the firm’s specialist Rural offering, working with businesses operating in the sector across Scotland.

John said: “I am looking forward to collaborating with the wider, highly regarded Stirling team and the rest of my new network of colleagues at Johnston Carmichael. Stirling has a vibrant and expanding community of family and owner managed businesses, which will benefit from both the extensive experience that Roy and I bring to Craig and the team, along with the comprehensive set of services already offered by Johnston Carmichael.”
