Webinar Objective

Transfer Pricing (TP) is an area of tax that has been heavily impacted by COVID-19. The transfer pricing models and policies agreed pre COVID-19 may need to be revised and changed due to group losses, abnormal operating expenses, supply chain disruption and decrease in demand.

  2. Get insights on strategies that MNEs are implementing to manage the impacts on TP.
