Transfer Pricing is consistently identified as the number one international tax issue for multi-national businesses. This focus is driven by external factors including EU State Aid cases, the impact of BEPS (Base Erosion and Profit shifting) rules and as a result, a significant increase in enforcement of TP rules by many tax authorities, who are concerned about falling revenues and therefore are increasing efforts to defend their tax bases.
The Mazars Transfer Pricing Team has actively participated in the BEPS discussions for several years now and has responded to these new challenges with insight and innovation, offering clients leading edge solutions which have been developed with the help of the global TP team. As a result, we can help companies minimize post BEPS Transfer Pricing risk by focusing on practical ways in which they can adapt their approach to transfer pricing and remain compliant, whilst at the same time rewarding the entrepreneurial risk takers in the business.
