Young IFA Network

The Young IFA Network was established in 2005 to attract more members in the early stages of their careers. The YIN Committee was set up by the Executive Committee with the aim of developing, proposing and implementing programmes at IFA branch and global levels to make the IFA appealing to young members. The YIN was officially launched at the Amsterdam Congress in 2006 and, since then, many IFA branches have implemented YIN activities.

This IFA Congress will also host the special YIN events listed below. While these events are primarily intended to attract members aged 40 and under, all IFA members are more than welcome to attend. Join these events by filling in the relevant section of the registration form.

Young IFA members will have the opportunity to meet and mingle at an informal reception at the Congress venue, prior to the Opening Ceremony and Welcome Reception. The purpose of the meet-and-greet reception is to give young IFA members and individuals attending their first IFA Congress a chance to meet informally at the beginning of the Congress. It will help them to make the most out of attending the Congress by building up their own personal networks.

The YIN Seminar will be divided in two segments. In the first segment, the winner of the Mitchell B. Carroll Prize will present his/her winning thesis. Then the winner of the Maurice Lauré Prize will then present his/her winning thesis. Finally the winner of the IFA President YIN Scientífic Award will present his/her article. Each presenter will answer questions from the audience.

The second segment will be a moot court session. The speaker (name to be announced) will preside over a hypothetical tax case to be argued by young tax academics or professionals, with one side representing the tax authorities and the other side representing the taxpayer.

After the arguments have been put forward, the acting tax judge will render his or her verdict on the tax case. The fact pattern for the case, the legal issues involved and the summary of the parties’ arguments will be made available to the delegates before the start of the seminar.
