Transfer Pricing & Valuation Services
The transfer pricing environment is undergoing significant change. At the request of the G20, the OECD has led a programme to discuss base erosion and profit shifting (“BEPS”) which has included a review of its transfer pricing guidance. Going forward, multinational groups will be required to provide greater transparency of their operations and tax profile in the countries where they operate and greater scrutiny of the tax affairs of multinational groups is to be expected.
The FTI Consulting Transfer Pricing team draws on the unparalleled experience of over 120 economists who price complex commercial and financial transactions, undertake valuations of intangibles and stand as expert witnesses in litigation cases. We are fully engaged with the BEPS programme and actively participate in the OECD’s consultations on transfer pricing matters, including Cost Contribution Arrangements and Hard-to-Value Intangibles. Also the team advises on the post BEPS environment and provides practical solutions to ensure adherence to new OECD guidance.
We provide a fully integrated transfer pricing service supported by our deep international tax and economic expertise. In addition, we are part of an international tax network of highly respected transfer pricing and international tax professionals for the delivery of multi-jurisdiction projects.
