"I have been with SportsTax for many years, first while riding as a Professional National Hunt Jockey and now as a Racehorse Trainer. Michael and his team ensured my Sportsperson’s Tax Relief Claim was submitted and filed appropriately at the right time to guarantee maximum effect. This allowed my transition from Jockey to Trainer to be both financially viable and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend SportsTax to any sporting individual."
John Cullen, Professional Trainer and former National Hunt Jockey
"SportsTax have been a rock of support and guidance with all my financial concerns. As a young man applying for a mortgage post economic crash I was struggling to gain the support of banking institutions. Variable income, risk of injury and short career duration were all cited as obstacles to my approval. SportsTax removed all the hassle and advised on how best to liaise with the institutions to help and speed up the approval process. This meant I could get on with focusing on my riding with peace of mind knowing I was in good hands, needless to say the approval was effortless and swift once SportsTax support kicked in."
Leigh Roche, Professional Flat Jockey
"I changed to SportsTax 5 years ago and cannot praise the service they offer highly enough. As a self-employed Jockey it is very important to know my accounts and tax affairs are in order and SportsTax ensure I am compliant at all times. They also inform me of my current year liability well in advance of the tax deadline, this way I can plan and save for it in good time and they have definitely helped me to become more efficient in all areas. JP and the team at SportsTax are only ever a call away which gives me great confidence when I have any queries, particularly mid-season when I do not have the time to get in for a meeting but need something dealt with on my behalf. I would highly recommend SportsTax especially to any young riders who want to get set up right from the very beginning of their careers."
Wayne Lordan, Professional Flat Jockey
"At all times in your career it is essential you have good financial advisors around you. We are all faced with the potential of early retirement at any time, good financial planning and straight talking advisors have allowed me to keep my tax affairs in order but plan for life after riding. I take great comfort in knowing that should my riding career ever suddenly come to an end that I have financial security and a plan in place for the next stage in my working life."
Davy Russell, Professional National Hunt Jockey
"Buying and selling horses is a tough game, there are good years and bad years too. SportsTax understand my business, they ensure my affairs are in order and compliant at all times. Tax efficiency is a vital part of my business and SportsTax have shown me how to manage this effectively. Michael is very approachable and is always willing to chat through the various financial options available at any given time, which gives me the confidence to make well considered and sound decisions for my business."
Aidan O'Ryan (Mouse), Bloodstock Agent
"A career as a jockey is relatively short time in your working life. As a husband and father, financial management both during my career and planning for the future after my career as a jockey ends has become a priority for me. SportsTax has been a massive help to me in trying to achieve this. The professionalism, personal care and advice provided is second to none and I would highly recommend their services to any fellow sportsman looking to achieve these goals."
Fran Berry, Professional Flat Jockey
