Transfer Pricing Specialists – A Brief Outline

What is Transfer Pricing?

The price that one division of a firm charges another division for goods and services offered is known as transfer pricing.

Prices for goods and services traded between affiliates or subsidiaries that are part of the same enterprise can be set using transfer pricing. Corporations use transfer pricing to save money on taxes.

Companies may often charge a higher price to divisions in high-tax nations (cutting profit) and a lower price to divisions in low-tax countries (raising profit).

Clients benefit from the services of a transfer price consultant in ways that include:

  • Assuring compliance with transfer pricing requirements.
  • Giving help in establishing and optimizing transfer pricing strategies.
  • Assisting with dispute resolution.

 

What Does a Transfer Pricing Specialist Do?

Transfer Pricing Specialists can assist a company if:

  • The supply chain has been changed.
  • A new product is being created.
  • Intellectual property is created/acquired in new ways.
  • The company has been reformed.
  • A purchase or a divestiture takes place.

To ensure a beneficial outcome, a Specialist sees to it that taxpayers make informed judgments about transfer pricing during these adjustments. In these instances, careful and adequate transfer pricing planning can lead to optimal financial performance.

A Transfer Pricing Specialist’s main duties are to provide an impartial, experienced viewpoint and assist with the planning process in order to maximize revenues and avoid risk during transactions.
