NHS Dental Services review claims for business rate reimbursement for NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSEI).

We carry out the review as a 3-year rolling programme. This means all providers who claim will have their claims reviewed at least once every 3 years.

Providers need to submit evidence of their income for the year before the period reviewed, such as:

  • practice accounts
  • a letter from a certified accountant. This must include the proportion of NHS and private income for the financial year.

If the provider has taken over the practice and the contract number has not changed, they must still give evidence of previous claims.

If inaccurate claiming is found, we will work with providers to resolve this. This may result in money being paid back to either the provider or NHSEI.
