Transfer Pricing Strategies

Does your company have international operations or are you contemplating expansion of your operations internationally? If the answer is yes, you should consider creating a transfer pricing strategy.

What is transfer pricing?

Transfer Pricing Case StudyTransfer pricing is a pricing arrangement for a transaction between related legal entities within a multinational enterprise. Intercompany transactions may include the transfer of tangible goods, services, intangibles and loans. The intercompany transfer price must be set as though the entities were operating at arm’s length (i.e., as if the entities were independent companies and not related). 

According to the OECD, approximately 60% of world trade takes place within multinational enterprises. As a result of this large amount of multinational trade, tax authorities around the world have become more assertive in enforcing transfer pricing regulations and initiating harsher penalties and new documentation requirements. The IRS has initiated a plan to add 2,000 staff to expand international audit coverage. In the United States, non-compliance may result in a penalty ranging from 20% to 40% of the underpayment of tax.
