Join us for the

74th Congress of the International
Fiscal Association in Berlin


 4 – 8 September 2022

Berlin, Germany

IFA 2022 provides a unique opportunity to discuss international tax topics of current significant interest and importance.

Welcome to Berlin

Join us for the 74th IFA Congress in 2022 in Berlin. We are very excited to welcome you all in Germany’s vibrant capital for four days of professional exchange, network opportunities and exciting cultural events.

The focus of the IFA Congress in Berlin will be on digitalisation and big data as well as recent developments in international tax law. We expect round about 2,000 participants from all over the world including leading tax experts from the corporate, academic, and political arena. This allows for an amazing professional opportunity to discuss international tax trends and delve into new topics.

Be assured that the scientific program will keep your professional side as entertained as your social side will enjoy the cultural part. Berlin is not only the German capital and therefore important for German tax practitioners, it is as well a very energetic city, full of cultural and social life.

Our conference venue, the former Maritim Hotel and now called Hotel Berlin Central District is located at the heart of the city, next to the Potsdamer Platz and the City Park ‘Tiergarten’, not far from numerous museums and concert halls that guarantee a great cultural entertainment. Explore Berlin’s colourful street life, art and food scene as well as its history. The opportunities are endless and the conference’s cultural and social programme will have a lot to offer.

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin and are sure, that when you will be leaving you, too, will be saying ‘Ich bin ein Berliner!’
