Transfer pricing is a key component of International Tax. It is estimated that over 60 percent of all world trade takes place between members of multinational groups. Transfer pricing rules address the prices charged on transactions undertaken within a multinational group. The transfer prices charged should be representative of arm’s length prices. Tax administrations are concerned that transfer pricing rules can be misapplied so that the result is an allocation of profits within the Group that is not aligned with economic activities that produced the profits, thus potentially minimizing income taxes payable in certain countries.
Most tax authorities have laws, penalties and audit practices that aim to give them their fair share of tax, and taxpayers have noticed increased activity by the tax authorities. A recent survey of multinationals showed that they not only viewed transfer pricing as the most important international tax issue for them, they considered it more important than all other tax issues combined. With market globalization, ongoing expansion of companies worldwide and the tax authorities’ growing knowledge and aggressiveness in these matters, we consider transfer pricing to be the most significant and difficult tax issue for our clients.
Specifically, you will work with and under the guidance of our talented Transfer Pricing team to assist our clients in addressing the various complexities, issues, challenges and opportunities that arise from the transfer pricing laws, and conducting business in multiple jurisdictions. The assistance to our clients includes various forms of analysis, planning, verbal and written communication of findings and recommendations, drafting of reports, as well as defense against tax administration challenges to our clients’ pricing.

Assisting our clients to undertake and document tax-compliant pricing for intercompany transactions.
Writing reports and other related deliverables that involve documenting and analyzing clients' transfer pricing policies.
Helping our clients currently undergoing transfer pricing audits by tax administrations.
Assisting with negotiating agreements with multiple tax authorities on behalf of our clients that reduce or even eliminate the risk of audit for past and future tax periods.
Developing and evaluating transfer pricing policies for our clients in respect of their international product sales, services, and intangible property.
Performing risk analysis of companies by reviewing their operations and identifying potential transfer pricing issues.
Developing strategies to assist clients in managing exposure to the constantly changing and evolving transfer pricing issues.
