About the seminar

Many corporations give considerable thought to their transfer pricing. The corporate treasury is often overlooked or neglected in this regard. The large majority are operated as costs centres, charging affiliates on a cost plus basis for providing what are perceived as routine services by some.

This perception is not properly aligned with the functionality of many corporate treasuries, which serve as sophisticated in-house financial institutions. Opportunity exists for many groups to adapt their transfer pricing to reflect this role, or to even expand or centralise the role of treasury. In this month’s seminar, we focus on treasury from a transfer pricing perspective.

We will share our insights and views on the following:

  • Pros and cons for establishing centralised treasury centres, with examples to illustrate the common related party financial service transactions
  • Benchmarking of treasury transfer pricing transactions (i.e., cash pooling, intercompany funding, financial guarantee and factoring)
  • Relevance, impact and restrictions of thin capitalisation.
