How we partner with you
The increasing complexity of a company’s global footprint, coupled with the heightened scrutiny worldwide following the release of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Guidelines and the guidance on Digital Tax under “Pillar 1” expected from the OECD, transfer pricing has arguably become the most contentious area of international tax, with heightened compliance and enhanced risks.
Compliance is only one element of an organization’s transfer pricing requirements; it is essential to first create a strategic framework and policy focused on defendability. Without a strategic perspective, compliance content that is not woven together to tell a holistic, globally-consistent story, and adapted to each local jurisdiction, could jeopardize an otherwise solid position
The current C-Suite focus toward transfer pricing strategy is unprecedented. With this high-stakes, high-risk issue, we have assisted numerous multinational companies who have been motivated to realign their tax strategy in sync with their business model or, in some cases, shift both the business and tax models into a new structure altogether to ensure that the economic reality of the value chain is reflected in the tax model during a transformational season for their company. Layering the complexities of a digitally-based supply chain creates a whole new level of complexity with the new digital tax expected from the OECD under Pillar 1.
We have the expertise to benchmark your business as a full enterprise, or use our transfer pricing and strategic tax insights to parse your company’s value chain and create a view as to whether “the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.” We have experience in using applied economics to create C-suite dashboards or to evaluate strategic decisions, such as divestitures as well as mergers and acquisitions.
