FOOTBALL

MATCH WINNING ADVICE

We work with some of football's top-flight players and managers, many of whom have achieved the greatest honours the sport has to offer including World Cup, UEFA Champions League and Premier League winners, as well as acting for football clubs and a host of ancillary businesses.

 

For professional footballers we are able to provide everything from basic tax compliance, through to complex image rights structuring where appropriate. We also provide full-service business management, in which we manage all aspects of our client’s financial and business affairs, working closely with our client’s agent, family, club, wealth manager and private banker. Our strong relationships with many Premier League football clubs and commercial understanding of the industry means we can support our clients as they build and grow businesses off the pitch and prepare for a future beyond playing.

With regard to football clubs we provide audit, accounting, taxation and corporate finance services. Our proactive expert advice and knowledge in areas such as the accounting treatment of player transactions and operational systems means that we generate significant value for our clients. From a corporate finance perspective, we have worked with clients on both the acquisition and disposal of football clubs providing lead advisory, due diligence and valuation services.
