Gaël Perraud

05/01/2023 – The OECD's Committee on Fiscal Affairs (CFA) has elected Mr. Gaël Perraud, Director of European and International Taxation at the Tax Policy Department of the French Ministry of Economy, Finance, and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty, as the Chair of the Committee beginning on 1 January 2023. He replaces Ms. Fabrizia Lapecorella, who resigned in December 2022 following her departure from the Italian Ministry of Finance.


As Chair of the CFA, he will serve as Co-Chair of the OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework on BEPS, alongside Marlene Nembhard-Parker of Jamaica, who became Co-Chair in March 2022.


Mr. Perraud has served as France’s Director of European and International Taxation since 2018. He is responsible for international taxation matters for France, including bilateral issues such as treaty negotiations, as well as representing France in multilateral organisations (European Union, OECD). Prior to his designation as Chair of the CFA, he has served in a number of leadership roles in the OECD including as Deputy Chair of the CFA, Co-Chair of the Task Force on the Digital Economy, and Co-Chair of the Forum on Harmful Tax Practices. He was also recently elected as Chair of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes.


Mr. Perraud joined the French Ministry of Finance in 2010 and has held several different positions within the Tax Policy Department. He served as Head of the European unit and multilateral affairs (2011-2013), Head of the unit dealing with domestic legislation on personal income tax (2016-2017), and as Counsellor for tax policy to the Cabinet of the Minister of Economy (2014-2015).


The Committee on Fiscal Affairs is the main forum for the OECD's discussions on taxation, covering both international and domestic tax issues and tax policy and administration. As the key global body for setting international tax standards, the CFA builds on strong relationships with OECD members and the engagement of a large number of non-OECD, G20 and developing countries on an equal footing. Importantly, much of the CFA's work is carried out through the Inclusive Framework on BEPS, which currently has more than 140 members.
