Taxation

The commercialisation of sport has significantly increased the industry's need for advice on tax legislation. The taxation of the income of professional sportsmen and women who from time to time end their career without having any particular domicile poses problems in itself. Associations and clubs are also increasingly faced with tax issues (e.g. in relation to their charitable status and legislation on donations) that can often only be solved with specialist help.
Martens Rechtsanwälte maintains excellent contacts to tax experts with experience in the sports inducstry, who are at your service for proficient guidance.
