WELCOME TO THE HOMEPAGE OF THE INTERNATIONAL VAT ASSOCIATION, THE PLACE TO JOIN YOUR FELLOW INTERNATIONAL VAT PROFESSIONALS

 

The International VAT Association (IVA), formed in 1994, is the world’s leading independent body on international VAT issues, representing the interests of businesses and advisers involved in VAT or equivalent turnover taxes around the globe. In Europe, the IVA’s membership is represented in almost all 28 EU Member States.  Globally, the Association covers all major international markets.

The members of the Association are of varying sizes from major international law and accounting firms to smaller businesses, but all being highly specialised in their chosen field of indirect taxation.

The Association is unique in that it provides to its members a forum for exchanges, through its website, LinkedIn Group and via regular conferences held in different locations around the world.

The forums for exchange enable members to share ideas, develop their businesses and determine common courses of action to work with National Tax Administrations and the European Commission to propose simplifications and procedures allowing members, their clients and business in general, to become more competitive and less constrained by administrative burdens.

The Association has over 100 members covering the EC and non EC countries (Australia, Brazil, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Israel, Switzerland, South Korea, USA, Norway, Russia, Japan) representing many thousands of clients, each of whom has a very direct interest in the development of value added and turnover taxes.

For any business working within the field of VAT and turnover taxes, this is the only multi-national Association which exists to represent their business interests.
