COVID-19: Managing the impact 

Helping you and your business through the challenges

Our clients are some of the most successful entertainers and sports people in the UK. We act for athletes, actors, models, all of whom value our hands-on approach to guide them through the tax minefield. We also make sure we collaborate with other advisors to make the process as seamless as possible.

We understand that as a performer or sports person, your income may fluctuate from year to year. We can take you through the whole process to ensuring you are paying the right amount of tax and at the right time in the right jurisdiction while making sure you are claiming the right expenses and there are no surprises.

There are also many tax planning opportunities available, so it is important to take professional advice on your circumstances as early as possible.

We can help you:

  • register yourself as self-employed with HMRC
  • take away the burden and complete your tax return for you
  • advise on National Insurance Contributions, VAT, record-keeping, and what work-related expenses you can claim
  • identify all tax planning opportunities available to you
  • work out if you are UK resident and/or domiciled for tax purposes using the Statutory Residence Test
  • minimise the UK tax liability on worldwide income, collaborating with local specialists within Crowe Global
  • understand the tax implications of prize money, appearance fees, endorsement and sponsorship income
  • resolve enquiries from HMRC as swiftly as possible
  • navigate any unexpected tax and financial implications if you are getting married, divorced or separating.
