About Taxing Sport

I am a tax adviser in the Sport & Entertainment team at Saffery Champness LLP.

​There are lots of tax issues prevalent in the world of sport and plenty of headlines in the media, often with a lack of substance or understanding behind them.​

Hopefully this blog will explain a bit more about how it all works.
