Transfer pricing is the number one tax issue for multinationals, but many companies struggle to address the requirements of the IRS and many other countries. This practically-focused seminar will include a review of transfer pricing fundamentals along with best practices for assessing common issues. This program first analyzes where transfer pricing issues arise for non-transfer pricing practitioners, then looks into transfer pricing fundamentals. CPA advisors and in-house finance professionals will benefit from learning about time-tested strategies successfully applied in transfer pricing audits. Participants will also be provided with an overview on how transfer pricing can affect global effective tax rates, and the impact of TCJA provisions on transfer pricing.
