UHY Hacker Young | Chartered Accountants


Over recent years we have become heavily involved in the sporting sector dealing with players, athletes, coaches and agents from a wide variety of sports including rugby, football, athletics and cycling.

We have been at the forefront in helping agents on the tax efficiency of contracts and setting up image right companies for endorsements and image rights payments from club and country.

We understand the pressures of being a professional sportsperson and we aim to provide a friendly, relaxed and ‘plain English’ approach to any advice that is given. Elliott Buss, senior tax manager, runs our sports division and can assist in any matters you have, whether at the start of your career or at the end.

Our services include:

  • Accounts for companies or sole trade
  • Corporate tax advice and compliance
  • Personal tax advice and compliance
  • VAT returns
  • Payroll
  • Tax planning

Our careful and efficient approach allows you to concentrate on what you do best. We are able to respond quickly and provide a fast turnaround of work. We agree timings and fees with you up-front, so that you are in control. We also have the benefit of being able to draw technical support from our other specialist departments within the firm.
