The IMCA is pleased to announce the establishment of an alliance with the Irish Tax Institute (ITI). As Management Consultants and Advisers, IMCA members are exposed to the full spectrum of businesses operating in Ireland and to the issues that they face. Much like Chartered Tax Advisers (CTA), IMCA members are at the boardroom table when key strategic decisions are being made. Many of these decisions involve tax considerations for which an appropriate level of awareness and understanding is essential.

The new IMCA – ITI alliance has a number of dimensions. Firstly, it incorporates a series of joint IMCA – ITI member events designed to deliver briefings for IMCA members on topical tax developments. Details of the inaugural joint member event are outlined below.

The second dimension of the alliance caters for those IMCA members who have an ongoing need to remain informed on tax developments that could impact on their clients’ business activities.   Under the IMCA – ITI alliance, any IMCA member with such a business need is now eligible to become an Affiliate of the ITI and so avail of ITI’s quality tax information service, as follows:

  • TaxFax – the essential tax technical update, dispatched every Friday
  • Technical bulletins on topical tax developments
  • Details of upcoming tax events and networking opportunities

If you are interested in applying to become an Affiliate of the ITI and availing of the tax information service please see details of the offer and the application process AffiliateITI

There is much to be gained from IMCA members and CTAs attaining better insights into each other’s work.  We look forward to working with the ITI to develop this alliance further in the future and to strengthening our ties with the ITI and its members.
