Of groups, borders and fines
Cross-border transactions between related companies are increasingly becoming the focus of financial administrations. The main issue is “transfer pricing”, i.e. prices and contractual conditions, that apply between group companies. This field is subject to complex tax provisions and numerous documentation requirements. A breach of the rules may quickly lead to additional tax payments and fines.

Tightened checks
The OECD has tightened the tax conditions in the area of transfer pricing in order to make "base erosion and profit shifting" (BEPS) more difficult. Many countries worldwide are now implementing the new OECD standards. Transfer prices have therefore become one of the key issues in tax audits.

Adjusting transfer pricing systems
Whether you belong to a globally operating large corporation or a medium-sized group of companies – international corporate groups must adapt and coordinate their transfer pricing systems and documentation to the new requirements.
