For over 20 years now we have been servicing professional players and athletes, coaches, clubs and sports agents and we therefore know the ins and outs of the national and international sports business. As a result, we see fiscal and legal possibilities and pitfalls way ahead. Maguire has worked on more than 750 national and international football transfers and is the exclusive tax partner of Pro Agent, the Dutch association of registered football intermediaries. Next to the football branche, we are active for stakeholders in hockey, volleyball, racing, fighting and sailing. Our services benefit both the big stars and the starting professionals. Did you know Maguire annually composes the income tax return of over 100 players and athletes?

We will also help you in your move abroad. In the past 20 years we created an international network of like-minded sports law firms in Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, USA, Germany, Turkey, France and Belgium. Emigrations are complex, and for athletes mostly sudden and hectic. We will ensure that all Dutch affairs are well rounded-up, and that you land safely in the arms of our foreign partner.

For a number of topsportsmen, Maguire is the family office: for a fixed monthly fee, we take care of all possible matters.

And finally, Maguire is the ideal partner for sports clubs and associations, with our expertise in corporate income tax, VAT, wage tax, donations, partnerships and sponsorships.
