The opportunity:

Transfer pricing is a key component of International Tax. It is estimated that over 60 percent of all world trade takes place between members of multinational groups. Transfer pricing rules address the prices charged on transactions undertaken within a multinational group. The transfer prices charged should be representative of arm's length prices. Tax administrations are concerned that transfer pricing rules can be misapplied so that the result is an allocation of profits within the Group that is not aligned with economic activities that produced the profits, thus potentially minimizing income taxes payable in certain countries.

Most tax authorities have laws, penalties and audit practices that aim to give them their fair share of tax, and taxpayers have noticed increased activity by the tax authorities. A recent survey of multinationals showed that they not only viewed transfer pricing as the most important international tax issue for them, they considered it more important than all other tax issues combined. With market globalization, ongoing expansion of companies worldwide and the tax authorities' growing knowledge and aggressiveness in these matters, we consider transfer pricing to be the most significant and difficult tax issue for our clients.
