SGATAR Taskforce

The SGATAR Taskforce fulfills the role of a secretariat, along with a mandate to seek continuous improvements in the way that the association is administered and run.

  •  

The SGATAR Taskforce was formed to review the operation of SGATAR so that it might be more effective in enhancing tax collaboration within the Asia-Pacific region.

It was first established in 2013 and consisted of representatives from Australia, China, Korea, Japan and Singapore.

The value of the Taskforce was quickly recognised – it conveniently filled the administrative void by functioning as a virtual secretariat – and it was established as a permanent feature of the association in 2014.

Taskforce membership follows the hosting cycle – the current members are: Singapore (2016 Chair), New Zealand (2017 Chair) and Philippines (2018 Chair).
