Transfer pricing is one of the main tax issues facing companies. Whether your business is a high-growth start-up or an established multinational, you need to comply with the regulations and have the documentation to prove that you have done so. Allow us to assist you to avoid penalties and additional tariffs, while you focus on growing your business.
The focus on transfer pricing has sharpened due to current developments within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the European Union and local jurisdictions. Countries now increasingly have stricter requirements for transfer pricing documentation and tax authorities vigilantly enforce these new requirements.
Hands-on approach and tailor-made answers
Multinational transfer pricing has tax advantages, but regulatory authorities frown upon using transfer pricing for tax avoidance. We can help you to operate optimally within the regulations. Benefit from our integrated tax and legal expertise and comprehensive transfer pricing knowledge. Our main service areas include:
- Planning and strategy
- Dispute resolution
Transfer pricing is closely monitored within a company’s financial reporting and requires strict documentation in master files, local files and country-by-country reporting. If transactions are found to be inappropriately documented, you may incur additional expenses in the form of added taxes and penalties.
Our transfer pricing specialists can help you with your documentation. Our clients have often used the experience gained from such assistance to roll out solid documentation standards in other jurisdictions. Our approach allows us to have a global impact with our local reach.
Planning and strategy
Feedback from our clients shows that new regulatory developments force businesses to review their legal structures. We can help your tax department to formulate sustainable transfer pricing strategies that are in line with your business while maintaining tax efficiency. We provide advice on transfer pricing policies, building and converting business models and profit allocations into permanent establishments.

With our integrated tax and transfer pricing practice, we are able to help you accelerate procedures and prevent double taxation. We also regularly assist our clients with audits and resolve (international) transfer pricing disputes both at an administrative and court level.
