Sports - personalities, professionals and business

Expert knowledge that stands out from the crowd.

In our experience, many sporting clients find it difficult to spare the time to manage their affairs effectively and make themselves aware of all the changing tax and accountancy rules.

Their time and energy is usually focussed and better spent if devoted to their individual sports.

We are able to assist in all areas of structuring both pre- and post-UK residency which is essential for image rights structuring. We also provide ongoing tax advice and management and administration services to our sporting clients.

Sportspeople are often targeted by HMRC on enquiries and we can handle all aspects of this.

Our sports team has a clear objective - to stand out amongst a sea of grey advisers - with experience in many sports but particularly through representing many first class premier league footballers and working exclusively for one of the best football agents in Europe.

An in-depth knowledge of these sectors built up over many years means that our clients can place absolute trust in our ability to handle their affairs and be up to date in relation to the tax laws, HMRC’s latest guidelines and market practice.

You can rely on Brebners to take a proactive approach, leaving you free to do what you do best. We are always here to listen, and, as your circumstances change, we will provide the most appropriate advice in plain English.
