Our dynamic Tax practice in Calgary is growing and we are seeking an Analyst/Specialist to join the Transfer Pricing team. If you enjoy working on diverse, interesting assignments for global companies, and working in a rapid-paced dynamic environment, transfer pricing may be the career for you.
Transfer pricing applies to international intercompany transactions on goods, services and intangibles. Transfer pricing is a tax practice intended to show that intercompany pricing by a business is fair to all parties to a transaction. This is an important consideration because tax authorities are concerned that inaccurate transfer pricing will reduce profits, and thus income taxes payable, in the respective countries.
In a survey of multinationals, not only were transfer pricing considered the most important international tax issue facing those companies, but it was deemed more important than all other international tax issues combined. As markets become more global, as companies continue to expand throughout the world, and as tax authorities become increasingly knowledgeable and aggressive with regard to transfer pricing, we expect transfer pricing to continue to be the most important and challenging international tax issue facing our clients.
Start date is expected in January 2021.

Providing compliance-related tax services, such as documentation or informational reporting
