Principles of Transfer Pricing

Overview and learning objectives
It is often said that transfer pricing is not an exact science. Hence, in order to develop an understanding of transfer pricing principles and methodologies, consideration of their practical application is regarded as paramount. This three-day introductory to intermediate-level course acquaints participants with the principles and methodologies of transfer pricing and then explores the application of these principles and methodologies to specific categories of intra-group dealings. The theoretical sessions are complemented by case studies that deal with the use of the principles and methodologies in practice. The focus of this practically orientated course is on the requirements of the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and Tax Administrations and the issues that can arise in the application of these requirements, including the latest developments following the OECD BEPS Action Plan.
This course serves as good preparation for the CIOT’s ADIT Paper III – Option F. For more information about the Advanced Diploma in International Taxation, you can visit the CIOT’s website.

This is an interactive course with a maximum of 40 participants. Participants will receive access to online supplementary materials.
