International Transfer Pricing risk – how to deal with?

The global Transfer Pricing landscape is fraught with uncertainty and complexity. Transfer Pricing has drawn the attention of tax authorities and taxpayers worldwide. New rules, documentation requirements and different interpretation given to the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines by both tax authorities and multinationals have created ground for many disputes.

A significant Transfer Pricing issue multinational enterprises (MNEs) are facing now is Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS). The existing OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines are changing and policies that previously were compliant may need to be reviewed and in some cases, changes to pricing have to be made. It is now time for multinational enterprises to determine what practical implications they face and how they can best operate within this radically changed regulatory environment.

Major issues and concerns

This Transfer Pricing course will focus on major Transfer Pricing issues and concerns that all professionals involved in the complex area of Transfer Pricing will face, such as:

  • Business Restructuring and Valuation
  • Transfer Pricing Legislation and Guidelines
  • Documentation Requirements per region and per country
  • Transfer Pricing Project and Risk management
  • Transfer Pricing (pre-)Controversy Management
  • Design and development of a Transfer Pricing policy
  • Types of Inter-company Transactions
  • Intangibles
  • Customs
  • The implications of BEPS for Transfer Pricing
