Programme Synopsis

The myth that using the “cost plus 5% mark-up” practice for any intra-group service transaction makes an organisation compliant with transfer pricing regulations runs deep and is widely followed, but is ultimately erroneous.

This upcoming session facilitated by Ms Adriana Calderon, Director at Transfer Pricing Solutions Asia, will bust this particular myth and provide greater clarity on the blind spots and TP complexities in services transactions. Participants will gain practical tips to manage a company’s transfer pricing policy and processes with regard to intra-group services transactions.

These include comprehending the value chain analysis, what to conduct in order to proceed with a proper services transaction: benefit tests, analysis of cost, determining appropriate mark-up through benchmarking, and implementing service charge uniformly. Come gain practical insights through various case studies to better understand the TP risks and learn how to better manage your client’s / company’s TP affairs.
