Taxation for Athletes & Entertainers

Whether your career takes you to Lords, Augusta, Wimbledon, Old Trafford, or down the red carpet a number of the issues are similar.

Some of these are: how many years can you continue in your profession; how much can you earn, and more importantly – save – before retirement; how much money do you require post retirement to maintain the lifestyle you have become accustomed to; and what will be the tax impact given the location you choose to live past retirement.

When planning for athletes, actors, authors, and models our focus is to ensure a sustainable and long term cash flow management plan is achieved.

Some of the important issue will be where you will be considered resident for tax purposes, how will withholding taxes apply to your earnings, how can you capitalise on your image rights, how can you keep your tax compliance simple, who can you depend on for impartial advice?
