Assisting Businesses with Global Tax Optimization

Every year more companies expand their international sales and operations as they grow globally. These companies face increasingly complex and material transfer pricing issues as transfer pricing regularly tops the list of enforcement priorities for many tax authorities around the world. In addition to potentially increasing tax burdens, it also adds to the expense and complexity of doing business internationally, as taxpayers try to navigate an ever-changing transfer pricing landscape.

Transfer pricing is no longer just a concern for large multinational businesses. Tax authorities are extending enforcement to middle market companies with significant cross-border activity. International initiatives such as country-by-country reporting force all taxpayers to increase the level of detail and transparency in reports of their business transactions, and subject them to increased government scrutiny.

At the same time, taxpayers can use compliant transfer pricing strategies to efficiently align profit among high-and low-tax jurisdictions, and improve their effective tax rates.
