BDO’s Sports & Leisure team advises clients across most major professional sports including rugby league, AFL, rugby union, golf, cricket, basketball, tennis and health and fitness businesses. We have worked with an array of high profile sports organisations and clubs within these areas, which include a number of player representative associations.

Our team of partners and staff are passionate about the sports sector and providing specialist services ranging from accounting advice, annual audit and compliance services, and salary cap reviews through to tax advice on employment tax, image rights and agents' fees.

In a highly competitive market in Australia, it is crucial that organisations in this sector receive timely and pragmatic advice to stay on top of issues and manage financial, business and reputational risks associated with non-compliance.

Our international expertise in this sector is extensive and broad ranging and best places us to provide our clients with expert advice around how organisations in other jurisdictions manage emerging issues facing their business and their professional sportspeople.
