GP practices facing payroll tax bills will raise their standard consultation fees by $12 on average, according to a survey by GP booking site HotDoc.

The national survey of GPs from 310 practices found that 95% would hike fees if faced with payroll tax and 16% of these practices could close on the back of a payroll tax bill.
