- Principles of Transfer Pricing
Overview and learning objectivesOn 5 October 2015, the OECD published its reports addressing base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS). This new guidance can be considered a game changer and is expected to alter the transfer pricing outcomes in many situations. This requires a different approach from both tax authorities and multinational enterprises. A significantly more granular risk and functional analysis should be performed. Companies as well as tax authorities need to have a better understanding of how value is created with respect to the development and exploitation of their intangibles. A further point of focus is the way in which companies and tax authorities should deal with the three-tiered OECD approach related to transfer pricing documentation.
In order to deal with all developments in the field of transfer pricing properly, it is essential to fully understand the transfer pricing principles and methodologies and their practical application. This five-day intermediate-level course introduces participants to such principles and methodologies and then covers their application to specific categories of intra-group dealings. The theoretical sessions are complemented by case studies.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.
