Transfer pricing relates to the cross-border flow of goods and services within a group of companies. These courses cover transfer pricing for tax purposes. They are ideal for companies that wish to minimise compliance costs by empowering in-house staff to undertake the basic tasks.

In almost all countries where a group does business internationally, there is a requirement to report the correct amount of taxable profit according to transfer pricing rules. Documentation needs to be prepared for local purposes in each country, and be consistent across the group.

These courses teach the guidance set out by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, under which most countries develop their transfer pricing rules. The focus is on a practical approach to meeting the requirements under UK and overseas rules. They examine how to apply the "arm's-length principle", whereby the amounts charged between related parties should equate to the position as if the parties were not related.

Depending on where profit is generated geographically, groups are subject to different rates of tax. Most likely, a better result can be achieved if personnel are suitably aware in financial and strategic planning. The finance professional needs to comply with the regulations, while at the same time selecting the best available fit for the group.

Typically, in many companies the finance director or financial controller will task someone in the accounts or tax department to manage the challenge. So our courses are designed to help the lucky recipient, both to understand the concepts and to tackle the tasks. The courses cover accepted norms in areas where the available guidance is quite general, or even vague.

Both courses are also relevant to finance directors and financial controllers who assess work from other team members. Equally important for them is the need to understand transfer pricing from a business planning perspective. It also helps to ensure the company gets value for money from its tax advisers.
