Transfer pricing is at the core of international trade within multinationals and is a key focus of tax authorities around the globe. In light of the OECD’s base erosion and profit shifting initiative, taxpayers—now more than ever—need to have an appropriate and effective transfer pricing policy, the ability to comply with documentation and country-by-country reporting requirements, and a strategy for responding to related inquiries. Responding to inquiries can be extremely time-consuming and can lead to tax adjustments, penalties, interest charges, and even negative publicity.
