Specialist accountants, tax & business advisors to the sports sector.
Set up out of one of the leading independent firms in the region – Charnwood Accountants & Business Advisors LLP (CABA) – we are able to offer the exceptional quality of service provided to all clients of CABA, utilising the vast technical expertise available within that team & complementing that with a sports-specific advisory team headed up by an elite athlete.
This enables us to provide proactive, tailored service plans that fit the needs of sports professionals & related businesses with a focus on their unique priorities.
With a particularly close working relationship with our large sports portfolio, the value added across the range of businesses includes far more than the standard compliance services & we pride ourselves on being seen to be part of the ‘team’ rather than an outsourced service provider.
