Please visit the Congress website www.ifa2017rio.com.br to find out all about the scientific programme and the social and cultural entertainment in Rio.



Past and future Regional IFA Conferences

The past months several very successful IFA Regional conferences took place. The USA Branch had their annual meeting with success and the following regional conferences will take place in the near future:


The Launch of the IFA App

April will see the launch of the official IFA App. The IFA App contains two parts: The Congress of that specific year and an all year-round IFA part. The IFA part of the App gives access to IFA News, messages for IFA members, information on Branch activities and the like. The second part is the Congress App and this will be the same as it has been for the past years but with a few added items such as online voting, better downloadable slides and chatting with other Congress participants who have downloaded the App; Members who have not registered for the Congress that year, will not be able to download the Congress part of the App.


The Traveling Lectureship Program

June 2017 will see the start of the first IFA Traveling Lectureship Program. Four well known IFA members, Robert Danon (Switzerland), Guglielmo Maisto (Italy), David Duff (Canada) and Philip Baker (UK), will visit ten cities in the Central part of Europe to give a comprehensive seminar on the Implementation of the Multilateral Convention (MLI) and other BEPS related issues.


Young IFA Network (YIN)

YIN at the Asia Pacific IFA Conference in New Delhi (India), 28-29 April 2017
A YIN Moot Court will be held during the Asia Pacific IFA Conference 2017. Peter Barnes (USA) will preside over a debate to be argued by young tax academics or professionals, one side representing the Proposition and the other side representing the Opposition. The fact pattern for the debate, the legal issues involved, and the summary of the arguments of the parties will be made available to the delegates before the start of the Seminar.


The Women IFA Network (WIN) at the Annual IFA Congress in Rio

On the Wednesday of the Rio Congress, the Networking Tea for the IFA women is one of its social highlights. The Tea will start at 14:30 and end at 16:00 hours. Please note it in your dairies but the details will be sent to all female participants a month before the Congress.
