This is NOT intended to be yet another post for moaning about the (im)practicalities of MTD, but is posted because I've been surprised by the frequency with which Aweb members are threatening to avoid involvement with MTD by the simple expediency of some combination of ... selling their practice / ceasing to trade or retiring / 'sacking' current clients / or more extreme measures (like emigrating).
The surprise lies not in the angst and stress of those contemplating an uncertain future, but in the apparent belief that this is an affordable personal solution (rather than just a cri de coeur before knuckling down, as so often before, to dealing with the mess imposed by the political classes on your clients - the taxpayer).
So I thought I'd post the same thing 3 times ... with 3 different options:
* Option 1: Accelerate your intention to retire (or wind-down provision of services)
* Option 2: Reduce your practice to size your resources can service (despite impact on profits)
* Option 3: Keep going and seek growth opportunities (even if how isn't immediately obvious)
I'm hoping you can 'register a vote' for one of those 3 options ... either by posting in the usual way but only under the appropriate Option thread, or (if you prefer to preserve anonymity even of your avatar) by selecting 'Like' for the appropriate Option.
It's not a Referendum let alone an Election, but the voting pattern may help to clarify the plans of the majority - not just those of us who are already retired or were planning it shortly irrespective of MTD!
