Our client is a professional sports league and a business we have advised since the game moved into the professional era. We were initially appointed as their auditors and tax advisers (a role we still hold today) after a number of key stakeholders developed a strong relationship with us through our deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges that exist in the game.

Through the ongoing audit and tax compliance engagement, we have assisted our client with its commercial and strategic development. As a result, we have advised on a number of value adding projects, including:

A full financial systems and controls review to support the development of the business/finance team as the broadcast and sponsorship income of the league grew.
Review of the corporate structure of the league given the growth in the game, profit generation and corporate status of the shareholders.

The League’s Finance Director commented:

“Saffery have responded when required, and they have provided advice and dealt with matters quickly and effectively. I can always get hold of them and they always give us a fairly comprehensive answer when I speak with them.”
