Our Story

The foundation of AOTCA was attributed to the existence of the Confédération Fiscale Européenne (CFE), the international organisation for tax advisors in Europe with a long history since 1959. Over the years tax professionals doing businesses in the Asian and Oceanic regions had been strongly conscious of the necessity that the same international professional body as CFE would exist in the area.

On 6 November 1992 an inauguration meeting took place in Tokyo Japan with the attendance of representatives of founding member organisations from 8 countries and regions. Since then AOTCA has grown to a membership of 19 professional bodies from jurisdictions including Australia, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, and two associate members from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

 

Message from the President

AOTCA was formed in November 1992 as the international organization for tax professionals’ organizations serving Asia and Oceania. From that beginning, it has grown to its current membership of 19 member bodies from 13 countries. Those organizations, in turn, represent 400,000 tax professionals.

With the globalization of the economy and the accelerating number of cross-border transactions through e-commerce, questions of international taxation have become increasingly important. AOTCA recognizes that these changes affect the nature of tax advisory services. We promote research into current tax policy and law, and submit recommendations to international tax authorities. As one of our annual events, we host the International Tax Conference where members can hear from leaders in tax authorities, universities, and industry. The Conference also serves as a forum at which members can exchange information about the latest tax developments within their own jurisdictions.

The AOTCA covers a large and dynamic geographical area. We include professionals from many different races, languages, and cultures. Together, we have created a unique network of people sharing a commitment to a common tax advisory profession. We are proud of our historical development.

As president of the AOTCA, I will make every endeavor to further the goals of AOTCA by promoting mutual understanding and cooperation among member bodies. And on behalf of the thousands of dedicated and public-spirited professionals who together comprise the AOTCA, I promise to redouble my efforts to promote the growth of our association, and its ever- wider recognition.

President of AOTCA
