Podcast overview

Understanding how and where value is created in a multinational enterprise is fundamental to analyzing the economics of the transactions between related parties. When the value drivers are your guide, quality transfer pricing is along for the ride.

Our host Brittany Hardin Tanguay welcomes KPMG Washington National Tax Managing Director Brian Shea and retired KPMG Tax Principal Steve Blough to discuss more about the connection between transfer pricing and the value chain.

About our guest: Steve Blough joined KPMG in 1994. In his 27 years with the firm, he held a variety of leadership positions and was involved in many transformative changes, and was a leader in intellectual property issues in transfer pricing. A prodigious writer and speaker, he has presented extensively on topics such as the reconciliation of transfer pricing and financial statement valuation approaches to IP valuation. He led KPMG global efforts with respect to tracking, commenting, speaking, and advising clients on the evolution of transfer pricing rules through the OECD’s BEPS projects, and numerous other firm initiatives during his career.
