A Rugby Players Income

Similar to a professional footballer, a professional Rugby player will have a contract with a Club that employs them. The contract length can vary but will have a commencement and termination date. The Rugby Football Union (RFU) approved contract will stipulate the basic income. The contract will also state the basic salary and any individual and team bonuses a player may receive.


How Do Lenders Treat Rugby Contract Income?

Not all lenders are happy to lend where the contract is not permanent. This excludes many sports professionals on fixed term contracts, such as professional Rugby players. As a whole of market broker we work with lenders that will use 100% of the basic salary plus any bonuses received. In addition, many of the players we work with have income from advertising and sponsorship. This income can be ran through a UK or offshore Ltd company and we can then use this income to compliment the main contract income.


Income Protection

A major consideration for any amateur or professional sports player is injury. In the event of an injury you may lose a portion of your income and in the case of long term injury may find yourself out of work. At Fox Davidson we secure mortgage protection such as sports injury cover and life insurance to ensure that your mortgage can continue to be repaid in the event of an injury, illness or in the event of death.
