The ATAF Secretariat was established shortly after the Forum’s launch in 2009. ATAF was inspired by the deliberations at the international conference on “Taxation, State Building and Capacity Development in Africa”, held in Pretoria, South Africa in August 2008. Commissioners, Senior Tax Administrators and Policy Makers from 39 African countries agreed to work towards the establishment of the Forum as a platform for sharing best practices on taxation matters in the region.
The Forum aims to become a platform to allow African administrators to articulate African tax priorities, anchor good practices, and build capacity in African tax policy and administration through peer learning and knowledge development.
