professional football players

Tax advice

Professional footballers are often subject to sudden changes of residence from one country to another due to international transfers between clubs. As a result, they face different tax systems as well as specific international tax issues. Compared to the past, the risk of (often involuntary) tax violations has significantly increased in connection with the growing international cooperation to fight tax base erosion, which has seen rapid development in recent years, in particular through the implementation of international agreements on the exchange of information for tax purposes.

Thanks also to its consolidated relationships with foreign tax and law firms, Plusoccer®️ assists professional players in tax compliance and guarantees integrated tax advice in an international context.
