Nationally, our sports accountants advise a broad range of clients in the sports sector, from providing individual players and athletes with personal tax and financial planning advice to auditing and advising clubs, government bodies, coaches and agents.

Our experience extends across many professional sports including, football, rugby, golf, cycling, cricket and motor racing. We also act for a number of health and leisure clubs across the UK.

We recognise the challenges that sporting professionals and businesses face and, whilst we appreciate that each client’s sporting circumstances are unique, there are a number of financial and business issues common to most professional athletes of which we have a deep understanding.

From tax investigations and contract reviews to image rights and supporting overseas sports professionals, we have a wealth of experience in minimising tax liabilities and meeting our sporting clients’ financial and accounting requirements.

We are proud to be a partner of Professional Player, an exclusive publication for footballers and their families. Through our partnership, we are a key port of call for tax and accounting advice for the UK’s leading football clubs’ academy and grass-roots level players.

A national team of sports specialists

As our experience in this sector has grown, so has the interest and dedication of our people. As such, we maintain a national sports sector working group which comprises our sports accountants from across our UK offices who meet on a regular basis to discuss changes in the financial and regulatory areas affecting the sector, ensuring that these changes are communicated to our clients. We can call upon this national expertise and knowledge for support, so you can rest assured that you will receive advice based upon real understanding and experience.
