Since its creation in 2002 the FTA has become a unique forum on tax administration for Commissioners from 45 OECD and non-OECD countries, including every member of the G20. Our vision is to create a forum through which Commissioners can identify, discuss and influence relevant global trends and develop new ideas to enhance tax administration around the world. Our key aim is to improve taxpayer services and tax compliance by helping tax administrations increase the efficiency, effectiveness and fairness of tax administration and reduce the costs of compliance. To ensure that the results of our work are available to as many tax administrations as possible, we publish the results of our key studies in the form of reports and information or guidance notes in the tax administration guidance series.

 

Message from the FTA Chair, Commissioner Josephine Feehily, Chairman of Irish Revenue

 

“It is a great honour for Ireland, in these challenging economic times, that the head of the Irish Tax and Customs Administration is invited to lead the work of the FTA.  The effective administration of tax has become an important economic influencer both within countries and globally.  Against this background, there is enormous value to be gleaned from Tax Commissioners sharing experiences, insights and best practice.  I will work with my Commissioner colleagues to exploit that value and to support the ongoing modernisation of tax administration programmes to support voluntary compliance and challenge non compliance."
