Tax

Professional accountants support organisations and individuals in complying with their tax obligations. They also help tax administrations develop more effective policies, leverage technology, and fight fraud. Today’s complex tax systems would not work without their involvement. Building on our commitment to the public interest, we consider taxation as a matter for society as whole. We recognise there is a need for change in tax policy and the many different players make consensus difficult to achieve.
