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 observers 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 Executive Board is in charge of the day to day work of CFE Tax Advisers Europe and reports to the General Assembly. The Board monitors developments in taxation law and the profession within Europe, and devises and manages CFE’s work streams arising from these issues. Work is managed through four committees: the Fiscal Committee, the Professional Affairs Committee, the Tax Technology Committee and the New Tax Professionals Ad Hoc Committee. Each committee is chaired by a member of the Board. Delegates from each committee also form various working groups and subcommittees focussed on specific or time-sensitive issues that necessitate specialist input.
