About Us

Trusted tax advisers who specialise in servicing the small to medium-sized industry.

The Federation of Tax Advisers is the modern membership body for tax focused professionals who provide compliance and planning expertise to SMEs and entrepreneurs. We support our members, who work in both business and practice, with information, professional qualifications, training opportunities and dedicated forums. We also provide platforms to exchange leads and network staged events and local meetings throughout the UK.

Founded in 1997, our aim is to provide taxpayers a high standard of security when dealing with a tax agent. In 2009 the FTA formed part of the Institute of Financial Accountants (IFA), the internationally recognised leading body for finance specialists working within the SME sector. The FTA now serves as the dedicated tax faculty for the IFA.

Our members are bound to uphold the highest standards of conduct and confidentiality, and undertake continuing professional development (CPD) activities to stay up-to-date with tax law and with best practice in advisory services. When you engage one of our members, be reassured that your tax affairs will be dealt with competently.

We publish a wealth of tax-related material for SMEs, their heads of finance and their owners. We keep pace with rule changes, developments in reporting frameworks and implementation deadlines with our regular technical updates.
