Footballers and sports professionals

Football and other professional sports offer the potential for exciting, international careers for those with the talent and skill to play at the highest levels.

Premiership footballers and other sports professionals can enjoy substantial financial rewards during their playing careers.

But those careers can be short – and be cut even shorter by injury – which makes it crucial for footballers and other professional sports people to start the process of protecting and growing their personal finances at an early stage, so that they can look forward to the future with confidence.

At Moore Thompson, we are experienced in working with professional footballers and other sports people and understand their need for specialist wealth management advice that reflects their financial circumstances.

With number of high profile tax cases involving UK and international sports professionals hitting the headlines, we can also provide expert advice in structuring tax affairs to maximise tax efficiency while delivering full compliance.

We understand that sports professionals are busy people, who may be travelling on a regular basis and have limited spare time for wealth or tax planning, so we are happy to work with their representatives, such as agents or other professional advisers, to assist in the effective management of their tax and broader financial affairs.

Our services for sports professionals include:

  • tax compliance
  • personalised tax strategies
  • residence and domicile issues
  • UK and international tax advice
  • tax-efficient remuneration
  • image rights
  • agents’ fees
  • investments, including:
    • Venture Capital Trusts
    • Enterprise Investment Schemes
    • buy-to-let residential property
    • business ventures
    • racehorses
  • pension planning
  • HM Revenue & Customs investigations and inquiries.
