  • 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.
