Taxation of artists and sportsmen

AlterTax Avocats has significant experience in the field of taxation of sportsmen and women and artists through its mastery of the problems, particularly international ones, imposed by the very nature of their activity.

AlterTax Avocats, a firm of tax lawyers working with professional athletes and artists

Sport is an economic activity in its own right. However, professional sportsmen and women constitute a very specific population imposing a "tailor-made" tax management subject to several hazards.

Tax rules do not spare artistic creation. Whether they are intermittent entertainers, authors, performers but not composers, singing teachers, artist-authors of photographic or plastic works, software authors... artists benefit from a special tax regime due to the atypical nature of their profession.

Depending on the nature of the commitments made and the activity carried out by professional athletes and performers, specific tax rules will be applicable both to qualify the nature of the income and to determine the portion of this income that can be allocated to France.

The team of tax lawyers at AlterTax Avocats assists artists and sports professionals in order to ensure the compliance of their situation in France and to alert them to the risks inherent to the rules of French tax law.

We accompany our professional sports and artistic clients in order to :


  • Determine and qualify precisely the nature of the remuneration they receive in connection with France (directly or indirectly: copyright, image rights, sports performance, etc.)
  • Arrival in France: impatriate regime, forms of remuneration...
  • Departure from France: tax residence, Exit-Tax...
  • Annual income tax and real estate wealth tax returns: application of tax treaties, management of withholding taxes levied...
  • Relations with the tax authorities.
The complex paths of taxation are no problem for us.
