The Asia Oceania Tax Consultants' Association (AOTCA) was founded in 1992 in Tokyo. The AOTCA is an umbrella organisation that embraces 21 national organisations from 17 Asia-Oceanic states and within them over 400,000 tax advisers.
The purpose of the AOTCA is to bring together all tax advisers' organisations of all Asia and Oceanic states and to safeguard the professional interests of tax advisers and to assure the quality of tax services provided to the public. The AOTCA aims to promote the further development of the national laws governing the profession, to exchange information about national tax and professional laws and the development of the tax and professional law in Asia and Oceania, to maintain relations with the authorities at national and international levels, and most of all to bring to those authorities the experience of practitioners of all areas of taxation and of professional law. The AOTCA also aims to inform the public about the services that tax advisers provide, to facilitate co-operation in all areas which are of common interest to tax advisers of the Asia-Oceania region, and to seek to provide the best possible conditions for the tax advisers to carry out their profession.
The General Meeting is the governing body of the AOTCA and the General Council is the highest-ranking administrative body. It is in charge of the day-to-day running of the AOTCA.
AOTCA convenes a general council meeting annually and a general meeting bi-annually in collaboration with a host organization. At the time of convening meetings, it holds technical sessions and discussions on local and international tax matters, investment, etc.
