Corporate tax

Deloitte provides direct tax advice to a wide range of clients within the sports sector.

Direct tax can represent a significant cash burden for organisations and projects if the exposures are not considered carefully in advance. Our experience in the sports industry can assist in identifying these potential risks and facilitate planning in order to mitigate liabilities.

In recent years, tax law has increased in both volume and complexity, thereby increasing the burden on companies. To help our clients navigate this path, we offer a full range of direct tax solutions, assisting at every step in the cycle from planning and forecasting through to compliance and negotiations with HM Revenue & Customs.

The key aspects of this process are:

  • Advice regarding the corporation tax implications of specific projects, including acquisitions and significant capital expenditure (eg, stadium development);
  • Preparation and submission of corporation tax computations and returns, using ONESOURCE Corporate Tax software;
  • Management of claims and elections to ensure maximisation of available reliefs;
  • Management of relationship with HM Revenue & Customs, including correspondence in respect of enquiries and liaison with Customer Relationship Managers.

Our wealth of experience in this industry has shown that all of these items generate specific challenges for sports teams or bodies and our co-ordinated approach enables us to anticipate and meet these challenges in the most appropriate manner.

In addition, Deloitte also offers advice in respect of specialist areas such as transfer pricing, withholding tax and the tax implications for charitable bodies and unincorporated associations. Our network of international practitioners ensures that we are well placed to advise on overseas as well as domestic implications.
