Over the last few years, multinationals have faced considerable challenges with respect to international tax issues, specifically with transfer pricing (the pricing involved for cross-border intra-firm transactions between related parties). Adding to the challenge is the rigorous regulatory developments and enforcement actions in the ever changing and complex global market. One of the proactive approaches that have emerged to deal with inconsistent rules and/or transfer pricing disputes is the use of Advance Pricing Agreements (APAs). Under an APA, a multinational taxpayer enters into an agreement with one or more tax authorities regarding the appropriate set of criteria to determine the pricing of various inter-company transactions over a defined period of time.
With the growth of cross-border transactions, multinationals must have a complete understanding on how to effectively use APAs to their advantage to keep transfer pricing disputes at bay. Join us as our panel of distinguished thought leaders explore the significant issues surrounding this timely topic plus practical insights on how to get the best out of APAs. The program will be followed by a Q&A session in which the audience will be invited to ask the speakers questions live.
