Ernst & Young LLP (EY) announced today that Mike McDonald was honored with Bloomberg Tax’s Transfer Pricing Report Lifetime Achievement Award.

McDonald returned to EY in September as an Executive Director in the National Tax Department – International Tax Services, Transfer Pricing, after spending 16 years with the US Department of Treasury, Office of Tax Analysis in the Business and International Tax Division.

Bloomberg recognized McDonald for his significant contributions to the transfer pricing profession. He recently represented the United States as chair of the OECD’s Working Party 6, dealing with the taxation of multinational enterprises. In that capacity, he was a key author of the 2016 final report that rewrote the OECD's transfer pricing guidance. McDonald also served as a member of the United Nations subcommittee that drafted the UN Practical Manual on Transfer Pricing for Developing Countries.

“The reporting and analyses in the Transfer Pricing Report have always captured both the details and nuances of transfer pricing, and just as importantly how transfer pricing fits into the bigger picture of international taxation and treaty relations,” said McDonald. “To have such an esteemed institution as Bloomberg Tax recognize me is truly an honor.”

The award was presented at a reception in Washington, DC, on November 29.
