Welcome to What I Wish I Knew by Dental Head Start. This is a podcast where we learn from people that have been there, made the mistakes, learnt the lessons and have developed into the accomplished dental professionals they are today.

It’s your weekly mentoring session.

Hosted by Erica Hwin

We learn a lot of things throughout our extensive education, but the one thing we don’t really cover before we graduate is what to do when we suddenly have a taxable income.

Thankfully, even though I have no idea, we have people like Bhupesh Kaphle – an accountant and tax & business advisory specialist – where this is his area of expertise. In this episode, we cover all the tax basics from the different types of taxes, your assessable income, allowable deductions, choosing a good accountant and the importance of recording your expenses. 

For those in a similar boat to me, who also get overwhelmed by this topic, I hope this is a beneficial episode for you to tune into!
