Branch Development Fund

Following IFA’s motto “growing local, becoming global”, the IFA Branch Development Fund (BDF) has been established by the General Council/General Assembly during its meeting at the Seoul Congress. The establishment of this Fund was proposed by Honorary President Porus Kaka. 

The overall objective of the Branch Development Fund is to promote and enhance IFA and its objectives worldwide, via a continuing development of its Branches:

  • Supporting and encouraging activities and the development of especially smaller and underdeveloped Branches by organising Branch activities and visibility and by increasing membership;
  • Enhancing the cooperation between Branches to develop the regions;
  • Creating more awareness and connection between the whole IFA community.

In 2019 the IFA Branch Development Fund supported the two following IFA conferences:

International TAX Conference in Sarajevo, 30-31 October 2019, organised by the IFA Branch Bosnia-Herzegovina. More information can be found here.
Tax transparency and digitalization era: Ukrainian view on global tax challenges, 15 November 2019, organised by the IFA Ukranian Branch.
