This three-day masterclass explores the transfer pricing issues confronting a multinational group that operates in a number of jurisdictions around the globe.
- Transfer Pricing Masterclass
Overview and learning objectives
In 2019, as in 2017 and 2018, transfer pricing (TP) remains a leading and challenging issue for tax and financial specialists of international companies and tax authorities. TP remains in an era of heightened tax risk and controversy, driven by an exponential increase in the demand for tax-related transparency. In addition, TP is the number one topic in tax audits around the world. More TP disputes in more jurisdictions take place than in the past. And, perhaps more significantly for the months and years to come, an expanding swathe of conflict spanning a wider range of geographies across a broader range of issues is expected. For this, both companies and tax authorities need to be prepared.
This three-day masterclass explores the TP issues confronting a multinational group that operates in a number of jurisdictions. Due to the OECD BEPS reports in the field of TP, which catalysed country-level changes around the globe, the interest in TP has increased even more. The important new terms in the field of international taxation are substance and transparency, and these terms apply to TP as well.
The masterclass has been specially tailored to the practical needs of tax, finance and TP professionals working for the tax authorities and in a variety of industrial and service sectors. The masterclass begins with a short and practical update on the latest OECD TP developments (Day 1), before it turns to a rolling case study on TP issues relating to the distribution, manufacturing, R&D, financing and management operations of the multinational group (Day 2 and Day 3). These are the most important areas of controversy for the coming years. The case study will ensure that the gap between theory and practice is bridged.
