Involvement in International Co-operation & Organisations

UN ECOSOC

In 2007 CFE Tax Advisers Europe obtained consultative status with the ECOSOC (Economic and Social Council of the UN). As such, the CFE is able to attend meetings of the Committee of Experts on International Cooperation in Tax Matters and communicate its views on taxation issues that are raised for discussion.

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

CFE Tax Advisers Europe is involved in the work of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) and regularly attends meetings and workshops organised by the OECD. The CFE also partakes in ongoing consultations by advancing member organisations policy positions on various tax policy topics.

Global Tax Advisers Cooperation Forum (GTACF)

The GTACF (Global Tax Advisers Cooperation Forum) was set up in 2014 to provide a global response for tax advisers to international tax initiatives by organisations such as the OECD and the UN. Given the increasing globalisation of tax policy and adminstration, the organisations of CFE Tax Advisers Europe (CFE), the Asia-Oceania Tax Consultants Association (AOTCA) and the West African Union of Tax Institutes (WAUTI) declared their joint commitment to establish a Global Tax Advisers Cooperation Forum to highlight the role of the tax adviser profession in the development of tax policies and the promotion and enhancement of taxpayer rights and their responsibilities.

Asia-Oceania Tax Consultants Association (AOTCA)

CFE Tax Advisers Europe is also affiliated with and attends regular meetings with AOTCA (Asia-Oceania Tax Consultants Association). AOTCA is a prominent international organisation for tax professionals in the Asia-Oceania region, established in order for nations in that region to exchange information, knowledge and experience in taxation, and to ensure the expansion and development of the tax profession.
