The Dutch Association for International Tax Law (de Nederlandse Vereniging voor Internationaal Belastingrecht) is a non-profit organization existing in its current form since 3 February 1968 (previously known as the Dutch Group of the International Fiscal Association (de Nederlandse Groep der International Fiscal Association)) and operates as the Dutch branch of the International Fiscal Association (IFA), which was established in 1938 with its headquarters in the Netherlands (the "Dutch IFA branch").
IFA is the only non-governmental and non-sectoral international organization dealing with fiscal matters. For general information on central IFA, we refer to the central IFA website.
The Dutch IFA branch has approximately 500 individual and 85 corporate members. Members of the Dutch IFA branch are tax professionals, i.e., tax advisors, tax lawyers, in-house tax counsels, academics, government officials and judges, with an interest in international taxation working in or from The Netherlands. Members of the Dutch IFA branch are automatically also members of central IFA. The membership fee payable to the Dutch IFA branch comprises the membership fee for central IFA.
For more information on our membership, we refer to the Membership section on this website.
The main activities of the Dutch IFA branch are the preparation and submission of Dutch branch reports to central IFA for purposes of the annual international IFA congress and the organization of seminars and bilateral or multilateral meetings with other IFA branches, all on subjects of international taxation.
Each year there are two general members' meetings, one in the Spring and one in the Autumn. During the Spring meeting an outline of the Dutch IFA branch report for next year's annual IFA Congress is discussed. A first draft of this report is discussed by our members during the Autumn meeting. The Dutch IFA branch hosted the annual international IFA congress in 1939, 1947, 1955, 1969, 1988 and 2006.
For more information on upcoming events, we refer to the Agenda section on this website.
