Transfer Pricing: Countries all over the world are applying greater scrutiny – and calling for stricter regulations – on transfer pricing practices. However, the many complexities of transfer pricing provide a variety of opportunities to optimize profits, increase cash flows, and make effective arrangements for your international transactions.

It is now common knowledge that Transfer Pricing is the most litigious tax issue worldwide, resulting in protracted litigation. Tax heads of MNEs need to keep abreast of the dynamics of TP Regulations across all jurisdictions, enable compliance in each such jurisdiction and adopt an appropriate risk mitigation strategy.
