Transfer pricing is the most significant tax uncertainty for multinationals. Withum provides transfer pricing advisory services to establish intercompany pricing consistent with the arm’s length standard for clients ranging from startups just expanding globally to mature, established global businesses. Taking a fresh look to assess the health of your transfer pricing strategy ensures an optimal global structure that minimizes transfer pricing risk around the world.
Withum provides economic analyses and documentation reports to comply with US Section 482 Regulations, OECD Guidelines, and foreign jurisdiction regulations. Preparing this annually at the time of the tax return filing is the key to both minimizing the steep 20% to 40% penalties of US Section 6662 Regulations and maximizing your best negotiating position.
Withum performs economic benchmarking analyses for those firms that require a lighter touch approach to transfer pricing. This transfer pricing approach is consistent with the arm’s length standard and is delivered in a manner that is less consuming than full documentation, yet ensures you have the right transfer pricing to use in your accounting systems.
