Visit to the “Guardia Di Finanza” of Italy


CIAT Tax Administrations representatives met in Rome on October 18 to 21, 2011, to learn about the structure and processes of the Guardia di Finanza, as well as specifics aspects on how the fiscal intelligence tasks are developed.


After the successful event on fiscal intelligence carried out in the city of Brasilia during the month of September 2011 and in accordance with specific requests received by the tax administrations of CIAT member countries, the Guardia di Finanza of Italy in coordination with the CIAT Executive Secretariat has offered the possibility to know “in situ” structural and functional aspects of the Organization, as well as the way the tasks of fiscal intelligence are managed and how international transactions are controlled.


On that occasion, the CIAT Executive Secretary, Mr. Marcio Verdi and the CIAT Director of Cooperation and International Taxation, Mr. Gonzalo Arias were officially welcomed by the Army General, Nino Di Paolo, the General Michele Carbone, Colonel Rosario Massino and Colonel Stefano Gesuelli, who discussed many aspects of mutual interest, tightening the already close institutional relations.


Later, with the words of General Nino Di Paolo, General Michele Carbone and the CIAT Executive Secretary, Sr. Marcio Verdi, the activity was officially opened including not only experts from the Guardia di Finanza, but also from different areas, such as Professor Victor Ukcmar; the Prosecutor of economic and tax crimes of the Milan Prosecutors Office, Mr. Carlo Nocerino, and the Tax Administration Attaché of the French Embassy in Rome, Ms. Altizio who commented and provided different point of views and experiences on the aspects of the visit.


Among the countries present, we can highlight the very active presence and participation of senior officials of the tax administrations of Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Haiti, Kenya, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic and Venezuela was noticeable.


While the Guardia di Finanza is an organization with unique features in the world, we have identified many areas in which it is possible to develop mutual cooperation actions, which range from aspects related to training and technical assistance, to cooperation actions aimed at the containment of harmful international tax planning and international organized crime.


On behalf of its member countries, the CIAT Executive Secretariat wishes to express his high feelings of gratitude to the authorities of the Guardia Di Finanza that enabled this activity and emphasize the excellent service with which to the present delegations were treated.
