TEI

Tax Executive Institute’s Global Tax Advocacy Taskforce won a place in the Global Tax 50 in 2012 for its comprehensive work to determine how it should represent the views of tax officers on the development of tax policy around the world. The organisation from which it sprang earns its own place in this year’s list for the sheer breadth of its impact at every level of national tax systems worldwide. From its annual congress in the autumn, where members debate and formalise their positions on a range of tax matters, to representation at meetings of state, national and international tax officials and the numerous educational opportunities it puts on during the year, TEI is the only organisation that purports to have a global reach for tax executives.

You only have to look at its schedule of meetings and list of representations to realise the impact it has. It has a solid rota of seven meetings on its continuing education calendar every year, including the annual congress, that cover issues such as international tax, audits and appeals, and financial reporting. That is not to mention the special chapter and regional meetings.

And in the three months between September and November 2013, it produced comments on topics such as the OECD’s BEPS action plan, the EU’s VAT place of supply rules and the information reporting required of large employers and insurers under the Affordable Care Act in the US.

Its influence is perhaps at its strongest in North America, where it has chapters in 49 locations in the US as well as four Canadian cities. But its EMEA and Asia groups are going strong and some intrepid tax directors are believed to be on the verge of inaugurating a chapter in South America. Africa apart, the world will then be covered by TEI and its impact is only likely to become greater.
