Anticipating transfer pricing: 2013
“What transfer pricing issues will dominate 2013?” We posed that question to approximately 2,000 EY transfer pricing professionals around the world. During our upcoming BorderCrossings webcast, two of the global organization’s most experienced transfer pricing professionals will share those predictions and insights. Join us to learn more about how transfer pricing trends, issues and events worldwide could affect your global compliance, controversy and planning in the months ahead. Among topics to be covered:
- The restructured and re-staffed US Advance Pricing Agreement (APA) program (now Advance Pricing and Mutual Agreement (APMA) program) achieved exceptional case closings in 2012.
- The Canada and Japan APA programs are expected to experience similar results.
- The IRS added 60 experienced transfer pricing personnel to support the IRS transfer pricing enforcement efforts (the new “Transfer Pricing Practice”).
- BRIC and developing countries continue to shape MNC’s global transfer pricing compliance strategies.
- Corporate restructurings continue, prompting governmental reviews.
- Globally, customs authorities are gaining experience with transfer pricing analysis.
- Global media and non-governmental organization (NGO) focus on corporate use of transfer pricing to not pay “fair share” of taxes.
During this live, interactive webcast, you will have the opportunity to ask questions through the website and the panelists will answer as many of your questions as time permits.
This program will be of interest to vice presidents/directors of tax/international tax/transfer pricing/customs/global trade, directors of finance, CFOs, international tax managers and tax accountants looking for the latest practical information and guidance to support their global business initiatives. We hope you will be able to join us!
