Partner Administration

Your country has the tax audit capacity needed by others - share it !

Tax Inspectors Without Borders (TIWB) is looking for Partner Administrations who are:

  • Capable of sending tax audit experts
  • Interested in funding a TIWB Programme
  • Desiring to participate in development programmes


A Partner Administration can be any tax administration (OECD or non-OECD member) that is able to second a tax audit official with expertise in a particular area. When requests for assistance are received, the TIWB Secretariat notifies international points of contact within potential Partner Administrations. A Partner Administration can then propose a currently serving tax official from within its administration for the TIWB Programme who will become a seconded TIWB Expert.

When a currently serving official is seconded to a Host Administration of a TIWB Programme, the Partner Administration continues to pay the Expert’s usual salary. The Partner Administration may also agree to pay the travel and daily expenses of the Expert’s participation in the TIWB Programme, although a number of funding options exist. These details should be fully defined in the TIWB Programme Terms of Reference drafted by the Partner Administration and the Host Administration, with the assistance of the TIWB Secretariat.

TIWB Partner Administrations:

  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Kenya
  • The Netherlands
  • Nigeria
  • Spain
  • United Kingdom

Partners Globally

In some cases, a Partner Administration may choose not to second a currently serving official, but may agree to allow a currently serving official to take a period of leave without pay in order to participate in a TIWB Programme. In these instances, the Expert’s participation is a hybrid between TIWB Programmes involving currently serving and recently retired officials. This raises issues pertinent to both categories in respect to funding, conflict of interest and confidentiality. In these cases, the Experts should nonetheless continue to liaise with their home tax administration to ensure that the latter remain fully informed of the scope of the Expert’s involvement in the TIWB Programme.

Regarding the Expert’s participation in the TIWB Programme, the Partner Administration may request feedback from the Host Administration or the TIWB Secretariat.
