The Latvian profession classification recognizes sports agents as a job. In real life it is very rare to be employed as sports agents. The State Revenue Service – the tax authority, as we call it here – has excluded this profession from average earnings reports due to there being less than 10 representatives.
In this article we look at the theoretical and practical aspects in sports agent’s life.
We spoke with basketball (and football) agent Raivis Ušackis, who shared his vision on how he sees the job and its duties.
We recognize that FIBA has amended its agent regulations not so long ago. FIFA has more recently followed the basketball governor’s example with a new and very aggressive order to replace (or supplement?) the previous one.
