Konnov & Sozanovsky partner elected member of the Ukrainian Board of International Fiscal Association (IFA)


In late December 2007, IFA Ukraine announced the results of elections of the Members of the Ukrainian Board of IFA. We are very proud to announce that Yevgeniya Derbal, Partner of Konnov & Sozanovsky, has become a member of the Ukrainian Board of IFA. She became one of six members of the Board along with representatives of other leading law firms and international accounting companies.

Derbal said, “Ukraine currently lacks organizations similar to IFA. The vast majority of large transactions demand high levels of skill and a professional approach to clients. This is especially  important in advising on taxation issues related to multi-jurisdictional international transactions. In this regard, IFA offers major clients – not only from Ukraine, but from all around the world –the assurance they are receiving support from the best practitioners”.

Yevgeniya Derbal is the firm’s leading lawyer in tax law, securities and fiscal entities.

The International Fiscal Association (IFA) was established in 1938 with its headquarters in the Netherlands. It is the only non-governmental and non-sectoral international organisation dealing with fiscal matters. Its objects are the study and advancement of international and comparative law in regard to public finance, specifically international and comparative fiscal law and the financial and economic aspects of taxation. Official registration of IFA Ukraine took place during the IFA Annual Congress in Kyoto, Japan on September 30 - October 4. Additional information about IFA can be found on www.ifa.nl.
