Transfer Pricing and Review of Cross-border Transactions


As with many other countries,U.S. tax rules strive to ensure that taxpayers with common ownership are using “arm’s length” pricing when buying and selling products, services, and intangibles to one another.

Essentially, “arm’s length” pricing means ensuring that related entities are paying their related counterparts the same prices for goods and services as they would be paying an unrelated third party. Each intercompany transaction must be separately accounted for in a company’stransfer pricing policy, whichasrequired by the U.S. Tax Code, must be maintained as contemporaneous documentation. 

We present practical, customized solutions to our clients’ unique transfer pricing needs. Theseservicesinclude: 

  • Audit support 
  • Functional analysis 
  • Analysis of comparable companies 
  • Transfer pricing studies and annual updates 
  • Documentationofcomparable companies andassessments, in line with IRS and OECD requirements 
  • Transfer pricing planning 

We also work with specialists to include transfer pricing analysis for local countries, in conjunction with U.S. reporting.
