Transfer pricing has become a big challenge to companies who are conducting operations in different countries in which their subsidiaries transact business with each other. Without proper documentation that would justify an arm’s length price of transactions, double taxation, imposition of stiff penalties and significant losses might result. The entities that are most impacted by this kind of challenge are the smaller companies, as compared to multinational companies. What kind of strategies should these companies execute in order to avoid the adverse effects of transfer pricing?
The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished speakers to talk about effective strategies on how to handle this kind of challenge. Key regulators and experts in the field of finance and taxation are scheduled to speak in a two-hour teleconference and webinar.
