Transfer pricing

Transfer pricing is a critical tax issue for businesses operating across more than one jurisdiction. Greater scrutiny is being applied globally to ensure companies are returning the appropriate amount of income in each country. This increased focus comes with an increased compliance burden as more countries require increased disclosure and impose obligations for contemporaneous documentation and up to date transfer pricing policies. 

Our focussed team of transfer pricing specialists is backed by a global team of practitioners to support you wherever you're operating. We can help you develop transfer pricing policies that are defensible, flexible and in line with your overall tax planning strategies.

We can help cross border transactions with advice on:

  • Planning

  • Compliance

  • Audit defence

  • Benchmarking
