The International Fiscal Association is the only non-governmental and non-sectoral international organization dealing with fiscal matters. IFA is a neutral, independent, non-lobby organisation and as such the only global network of its kind. As a non-profit organisation, IFA provides a neutral and independent platform where representatives of all professions and interests can meet and discuss international tax issues at the highest level.
Its objects are the study and advancement of international and comparative law in regard to public finance, specifically international and comparative fiscal law and the financial and economic aspects of taxation.
IFA seeks to achieve these objects through its Annual Congresses and the scientific publications relating thereto as well as through scientific research.
Although the operations of IFA are essentially scientific in character, the subjects selected take account of current fiscal developments and changes in local legislation.
