1. CFE Tax Advisers Europe
CFE Tax Advisers Europe (formerly Confédération Fiscale Européenne) is a Brussels-based association representing European tax advisers. Founded in 1959, it brings together 30 national organisations from 24 European countries, representing more than 200,000 tax advisers. There are two UK member organisations – the Chartered Institute of Taxation and the ICAEW Tax Faculty.
Most but not all of the CFE’s representations are to EU institutions. Not all CFE member organisations are from within the EU. For example, there are member organisations from Russia, Ukraine and Switzerland.
At its meetings CFE discusses international tax developments which are of interest to its member institutes.
The General Assembly is the governing body of CFE Tax Advisers Europe, in which each member state is able to be represented by up to six delegates, and observer countries by up to two delegates. The primary responsibilities of the General Assembly are to decide on the acceptance of members and observers, to approve amendments to the governing statutes, to adopt the business report of the Executive Board and to approve the accounts and budget for the CFE.
The General Assembly meets annually. As well as the General Assembly there will be meetings of CFE’s Fiscal Committee and Professional Affairs Committee.
