I provide some voluntary help at a small professional football club.
They are signing a player from another EC country and have agreed to rent a flat for him whilst he is under contact. The contract runs for 18 months.
Is this a 'benefit in kind' and is there a point where there is no benefit based on the length of the tenancy i.e. short term.
As part of a professional footballers job they sometimes have to move around from club to club (often without their family) to make a living.
If other players were to share the flat how might this impact on the situation?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
