WebinarWebinar: The Role and Importance of Transfer Pricing in International Tax Planning

Transfer pricing has become one of the core areas of international taxation. Transfer pricing developments, legislative changes and complex cases arise on a daily basis, therefore getting to know the fundamental principles, the context and background of why transfer pricing is so important for tax planning is a very relevant issue. This webinar explores how transfer pricing affects the tax (planning) position of a multinational enterprise (MNE) conducting cross-border business as well as the revenue consequences of transfer (mis)pricing for governments.

Webinar: The Role and Importance of Transfer Pricing in International Tax Planning

Overview and learning objectives

The presenters will discuss how businesses and tax administrations approach transfer pricing (TP), why TP is an important element of tax planning, what the basic drivers are of potential TP practices, what risks and opportunities exist for MNEs and tax administrations after the 2017 OECD TP Guidelines, and what conclusions can be drawn from relevant TP case law.


After following this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • appreciate the relevance of TP in international taxation
  • comprehend how TP fits into tax planning considerations
  • identify TP risk areas for MNEs wishing to lower their effective tax rate
  • understand the position of tax administrations against base erosion and profit shifting through TP
  • apprehend some of the commonly used transfer mispricing practices
  • acknowledge potential counter measures and arguments
