TP Documentation and Benchmarking Analysis - How to get it right?

Transfer Pricing (TP) documentation and benchmarking analysis are pivotal to defending your transfer pricing risks from the tax authorities. Hence, it is important for you to do them right. But HOW do you get them right?

Programme Objective
 
Transfer pricing documentation and benchmarking analysis are key when defending transfer pricing risks from tax authorities. However, the reality is that the theory and practice of preparing documentation and benchmarking analysis are very different, hence the importance of practical insights. 
 
This seminar is designed to share practical knowledge through real life case studies about key aspects of managing transfer pricing risks. You will learn:

  • Practical solutions on how to test related party transactions, including services, buy/sell transactions, intercompany loans with a case study using databases.
  • How to ensure that your documentation and benchmarking analysis are ‘bullet-proof.'
  • Practical tips to minimise risks related to benchmarking analysis to ensure you get it right
  • How to implement benchmarking results correctly and examples of how the implementation can go wrong.
