Transfer Pricing Services

Transfer pricing is another challenge for international businesses with operations in China and Hong Kong. The increased volume of cross-border transactions has made transfer pricing becoming a complicated issue. Transfer pricing audits in China can result in retroactive review of up to ten years.

With the Chinese and Hong Kong tax authorities tightening their grip on transfer pricing enforcement with additional resources and regular audits, businesses must act accordingly to prevent adverse predicaments that may potentially result in heavy fines and additional tax payments. Hong Kong tax authority had issued transfer pricing guidelines for strengthening the management on transactions between associated companies.
