If your business has any intercompany transactions, maintaining compliance in your transfer pricing is essential. However, transfer pricing is more than just a compliance tool – if you look at your options from a holistic perspective, there may be opportunities to help you achieve specific financial goals, improve cash flow, and deploy cash.
Developing proactive transfer pricing policies can also help your business align its tax and financial goals. Transfer pricing can apply to a wide range of situations, including the sale and purchase of tangible goods, license of intangible property, provision and receipt of services, financial transactions, and cost sharing arrangements.
Because it applies to so many situations, transfer pricing can impact many other areas, including customs and duties, financial reporting, legal, supply chain management, treasury, and operations. Understanding those interactions can be a catalyst to discovering and maximizing opportunities across your business.
