To help you stay informed and able to adapt to an increasingly uncertain and challenging global tax environment, EY is pleased to bring you this twenty-sixth installment of BorderCrossings – our monthly webcast series devoted to transfer pricing and related tax issues.

A high percentage of active United States and Canadian multinational companies have transactions with related parties in India and/or China. Whether the related party transactions involve tangibles, services, or intangibles, multinationals face transfer pricing enforcement regimes and controversy procedures in India and China that differ substantially from those in North America.

For both India and China, this webcast will provide background on:

  • Unusual aspects of the transfer pricing rules in each country (including India safe harbor rules)
  • Experience with transfer pricing audits
  • Significant court cases
  • Information on the mutual agreement procedure (MAP) and advance pricing agreement (APA) program in each country, as well as the negotiating experience with the US and Canadian tax authorities

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!
