Transfer pricing and economics

Mitigating risk and optimizing tax efficiency.

Transfer pricing is widely acknowledged as the most important tax issue facing multinational businesses. Although transfer pricing raises significant compliance issues, it can provide excellent opportunities for tax optimization.
