Services for Members of the Rugby Players Association
We are very pleased to have recently been appointed to the specialist panel of tax advisers to the RPA. The RPA represents the interests of all the top professional and semi-professional Rugby players in England; both active and retired.
As part of our commitment to the RPA we will provide the following services to RPA members at specially discounted rates: Tax Returns If H M Revenue & Customs have issued you with a notice to complete a tax return then it must be filed on time to avoid penalties and any other difficulties with the tax authority. We will assist members compile and file their tax returns. For simple returns this will be for a set fee. For more complex returns we will agree a fee with you but, as an RPA member, you will receive the special discount on all our fees. Accounts and Accountancy Services we can produce accounts for your non-playing income as part of our work on your annual tax returns. Agent fees we can provide you with advice on the tax treatment of any agent fees you may incur. Image Rights we can help you get the tax treatment right. General Tax advice we can deal with all general tax issues to leave you free to concentrate on your game and career. This can include residence and domicile issues for those players coming to England to play, advice of the treatment of re-location costs and expenses and the correct treatment of benefits and expenses. Investigations and enquiries you dont necessarily have to have done anything wrong for the tax authorities to open an enquiry. That said, any investigation is both stressful and time consuming and will be a big distraction. H M Revenue & Customs will carefully look through your financial affairs and challenge you if they think there is tax to pay. We can deal with any investigation, keep the tax man onside and keep the impact on you to a minimum. Have a look at the rest of our website to see the extent of our experience and knowledge in this area. Testimonial or benefit- more and more players appear to be fortunate enough to have a number of keen supporters who are prepared to form a committee. H M Revenue & Customs are taking a hard line in this area and many committees are finding out far too late what is acceptable and what is not to the tax man. This can have a massive impact on the funds raised. We have considerable expertise and experience in this area and can offer our services to fundraising committees to help them get it right. If any RPA member has an issue that they want to discuss with us please get in touch on a completely confidential basis by telephoning 01283 761 777 or email us using our Email Enquiry Form
