Notes from the Chair

“Welcome to the IFA UK website!

I am immensely proud to Chair the UK Branch of the International Fiscal Association, one of the most active national branches of the global IFA organisation headquartered in The Netherlands.

We currently have over 300 members and I am really keen that we continue to grow that number further. I firmly believe that membership of IFA offers tremendous value for money. Not only do we offer regular unparalleled access to top quality speakers that allows members to keep up to date with the most topical domestic and international tax issues; it is also a truly excellent way to build networks with fellow tax professionals.

I am particularly proud of the inclusiveness of the IFA approach which is unique in the global tax environment: our members come from many backgrounds and cover all constituencies of the tax profession in the UK, including government, advisers, academia, in-house and professional institutes. Through our monthly events we are therefore able to debate topical tax matters from many perspectives in a fully inclusive manner, ultimately fulfilling the overall IFA objective of advancement of understanding of tax policy and law.

If you are already a member I look forward to seeing you at our next event; if you are not yet a member please do take a look at the member benefits and see for yourself the benefits being a member could bring to your tax career!
