Rogers Capital sets up the Tax Africa Network


Rogers Capital introduces the Tax Africa Network (TAN). This new African organisation is expected to be the springboard for investment on the African continent, through a network of trusted members from different African countries, with a specific mandate: to provide customised solutions to businesses worldwide. “We are privileged to witness the rise of the first network of tax professionals born and bred in Africa,” said Cathie Hannelas, managing director of Rogers Capital Tax, founding member of TAN.


The network is conceived and built to be an integral part of the shift in the economic landscape of Africa. It was created by tax professionals from Africa, who are equipped with experience outside the African continent, many with decades of experience in leading tax firms, sharing a vast knowledge of complex projects and investments on the continent.


TAN has the support of its new member countries in Central, East and West Africa and the Indian Ocean. Member countries include Gabon, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, and Senegal.


The new entity is strategically positioned to advise industrial groups, investment funds, commercial banks, development financial institutions, African states, communities, start-ups, and young companies with high innovation impact potential. Some regions of the African business community are already operating under the common OHADA law (Organisation for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa), while the fiscal regime of countries of the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (6 countries) and West African Economic and Monetary Union (8 countries) regions are very similar.


With the convergence of African nations as one, TAN is the ultimate partner tasked to be the robust bridge between the African continent and the rest of the world. A member-based organisation, TAN is open to Tax & Legal professionals.
