The Branch Network was established in 2003 and is unique to the Institute. It provides a forum for Institute members to interact with their local Revenue counterparts to discuss and resolve any issues arising in their day-to day interactions with Revenue and to hear about the latest developments in Revenue’s activities.
The Institute’s Branch Network mirrors Revenue’s operational structure, and engages with Revenue’s six operational divisions; Personal Division, Business Division, Medium Enterprises Division, Large Corporates Division, Large Cases – High Wealth Individuals Division and the Collector-General’s Division. The aim of the Branch Network is to ensure Institute members are kept informed on important tax administration issues, are made aware of pressure points that may arise in Revenue service delivery and have a channel of communication with Revenue on tax administration issues. It also enables members to network with other Chartered Tax Advisers (CTA).
Each Branch is chaired by an experienced Institute member. Institute Branch representatives meet with senior personnel in Revenue on behalf of the members to discuss common issues. In addition, meetings with senior Revenue officials are held annually to discuss tax administration issues and developments.
