About Tax Refunds for Professional Footballers

Professional athletes and sports players may be
eligible to claim tax refunds on their expenses.

In many cases this can include travel costs,
subsistence, accommodation, and laundry costs.

At KPP Accountants we specialise in advising
professionals across many different sports and levels
of professionalism on their eligibility to claim.

Once a claim has been identified we deal with everything on the players behalf, from negotiations with HMRC through to a successful refund of the tax owed.

What can I claim for?

Any professional or semi-professional sports player can claim a tax rebate if using their own vehicle or incur expenditure on any of the following:

Travel expenses to:
- Away games
- Reserve games
- Training grounds
- Home games (if on loan from another club)
- Medical centres for injury treatment

Expense claims can also be made on any of the following:
- Kit and laundry costs
- Subsistence
- Accommodation

How do you know if you can make a claim?

There is no cost from KPP to find out if you are eligible to make a claim.

If there is no claim to be made then you have at least tried.

If there is a claim to be made, then KPP will deal with everything on your behalf until the tax refund has been made.
