On 18 August 2020, the heads and focal points of eight member organisations of the Network of Tax Organisations (NTO) - ATAF, ATAIC, CATA, CIAT, COTA, IOTA, PITAA, WATAF - as well as the International Tax Compact (ITC) and the Italian Guardia di Finanza participated in the 2nd NTO General Assembly. Held online, the meeting was chaired by Marcio Verdi, Head of the NTO Council, and hosted by the ITC, which facilitates the NTO Secretariat.
The NTO members reviewed the work plan of 2019/2020 and discussed the new work plan for 2020/2021. They approved the amended governance document describing membership policies, roles and responsibilities, governance structure and procedures, and guiding principles of cooperation. In addition, they voted on the new NTO Council (ATAF, CIAT, CATA, IOTA, PITAA) as well as the Head of Council (Marcio Verdi). Among other topics, the NTO members decided to hold a minimum of four NTO Council meetings a year and to create a subcommittee to work closely on the NTO Technical Conference taking place in October 2021. The representatives of NTO members will meet next on 24 November 2020 for the 8th NTO Council Meeting.
