ELIGIBILITY

The IFA branch membership is open to all tax professionals, i.e., tax advisors, tax lawyers, in-house tax counsels, academics, government officials and judges, with an interest in international taxation working in or from Curaçao, Aruba, Sint Maarten and or the Caribbean Region.

Members of the IFA branch are automatically also members of the central IFA. The IFA branch membership fee also comprises the central IFA membership fee. The membership fees for individual- and corporate memberships are set forth below.

Private membership

ANG 445 per annum (2024). For members under the age of 30 we have a special membership of ANG 150 per annum (2024) for individual members of participating Branches under the age of 30 on 1 January 2024.

Corporate membership

ANG 1.130 per annum (2024). The corporate membership allows organizations to appoint two employees to become members.

BENEFITS

Members will become a member of the worldwide central IFA network and will be invited to attend IFA meetings, eligible to author IFA branch reports and/or otherwise involved in the scientific work of IFA and receive news from the IFA branch and central IFA.

Members will receive a copy of IFA's cahier de droit fiscal international (either in folio or in ePub format), which contains the general and branch reports on the relevant subjects discussed during the annual IFA Congresses and have have access to the relevant documents of past congresses, which are held on the central IFA website (www.ifa.nl).

Membership benefits may be amended from time to time.

EVENTS

Most events organized by the IFA branch and the YIN and WIN Committees can be attended by members free of charge.

Attendance at bilateral and multilateral meetings and the annual IFA Congress may be subject to separate attendance charges, which are used to cover the costs of the relevant event. As IFA is a non-profit organization, attendance charges are kept as low as possible.

APPLICATION

Your application will be reviewed by the board of the IFA branch. The board will make a recommendation to the general members' meeting and the members will decide on accepting your membership application. Usually, all applications by eligible tax professionals are accepted.

Members are admitted by the general members meeting on a recommendation of the board. The rights and obligations of members of the IFA branch are set forth in our articles of association (only available in Dutch).
