Here you find press articles on issues, being of interest for European Club sports – with an emphasis on handball:


Key message: ‘The sums paid (to the agent) had to be attributed to the income of the … players’ …. ‘these were freed from paying VAT (which is taxwise incorrect, of course)’

The article explains that clubs AND players act incorrectly, if the clubs pay the agents (and they are representing the player).

FCH member clubs should try to understand these sentences/the article and act correctly according to the new regulations of IHF: The players have to pay the agent, if the agent represents the player.
