As governments become more aggressive in their pursuit of tax revenue, middle market organizations with international operations face serious risks related to transfer pricing taxes. Regulatory authorities are focusing on multinational companies, and the number of transfer pricing audits is expected to rise. The risks of noncompliance have never been higher.
We believe the best way to avoid these tax compliance risks is to establish a holistic, end-to-end transfer pricing process, one that draws the wider chain of activities together in a well-defined set of procedures. We analyze, evaluate and document the way your organization determines pricing for products, services and intangibles (e.g., trademarks, patents, copyrights) transferred between related companies. Collaborating with you, we develop and implement transfer pricing strategies to minimize risk and tax exposure while meeting transfer pricing documentation requirements in foreign jurisdictions.
Transfer pricing touches many business areas for multinational organizations with cross-border activities. RSM’s effective planning can help reduce your risk and increase your efficiency.
Gathering information for a transfer pricing plan requires open communication, clear deadlines and the right tools. RSM can help assemble and analyze your charts, financial statements, intercompany agreements and other commonly requested information.
Multinational organizations often find themselves under a mounting regulatory burden related to their intercompany pricing. RSM’s operational transfer pricing (OTP) provides an end-to-end framework to streamline and reduce the cost of compliance.
One of the best ways to avoid surprises is to negotiate an advance pricing agreement with tax authorities. It establishes agreed-upon rules for your transfer pricing methodology, eliminating sudden jolts. We can show you how.
A cost allocation study can ensure proper charge-outs, assess exposure to deferred expenses, find opportunities for tax-efficient repatriation and much more. The RSM transfer pricing team can help you get the most from this process.
Is your supply chain leaking money? Efficiency in your supply chain is critical to your bottom line. We help you identify functions, risks, and people to reallocate them in the most tax-efficient manner, consistent with your objectives.
Multinational organizations know that a cost-sharing arrangement (CSA) can be extremely beneficial. But the path to obtaining one can be complex. RSM’s skilled advisors, who understand your business and your goals, are ideally positioned to assist.
