The UK branch is one of the oldest and largest branches. It has an excellent programme of branch activities and also plays an active role in the international organisation.

The British Branch of the International Fiscal Association

The British Branch of IFA puts on an excellent programme of meetings each year on tax topics of current interest, the primary focus being on international taxation. We are fortunate to be able to attract leading speakers from all parts of the tax community including the government, industry, advisors and academics.  As a result, we are able to provide leading edge technical content at our meetings and a clear focus on the practical aspects of the selected topics.

We are particularly grateful for the strong support which we receive from HM Treasury and HMRC ensures that our meetings are better informed and more balanced.

In addition to our regular meetings we hold a joint flagship conference with HM Treasury and HM Revenue and Customs in the summer.  We also hold 2 join meetings with the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
