Tax Essentials for Sports Professionals (Paperback)
Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
The way that personal tax applies to professional sports people is incredibly nuanced and there is currently no book that brings together all of the idiosyncrasies that apply specifically to sports people.Agents, sports lawyers and sports professionals themselves are acutely aware of the implications of entering into improper tax schemes or even just failing to be compliant. There is a tangible shift in how professionals who support athletes approach their taxes. The industry is more alive now to improper tax investments and the devastating impact that this can and does have on their clients. With this book, professionals will be able to dip into the sections they require and use the content to support their work and ensure they are providing holistic advice to their clients. The book will include real life overviews, case studies and flow charts and tables to make the information as digestible as possible. It is broken down into sections, focusing on all major sports.
