The authorities and the IVA : working for you

 

One of the core objectives of the IVA is :

  • “To make representations to governmental authorities, paying agencies or the Commission or other appropriate person or body, on the operation of VAT Law and practice”
  • “To handle issues with VAT Authorities which are of interest/concern of the wider membership”
  • “To represent all the membership and not one section of the membership

Extract from IVA Articles of association.

The IVA has been nominated as business member of the EU VAT Forum for the period 2015-2018, represented by Mr. Emmanuel Cotessat and Mr. Mike Molony. A Scientific Committee was formed in March 2015 in order to support the work of the IVA in the EU VAT Forum 2015 – 2018. The group would meet 'virtually'. Emmanuel Cotessat and Mike Molony would coordinate this group so that at the Forum meetings they represents the views of all of the Association’s members.
