Transfer Pricing Group Services
Compliance & Documentation
As tax authorities become increasingly more vigilant of transfer pricing, compliance and documentation demand greater attention than ever before. Our partners have extensive knowledge of global transfer pricing rules and can assist with preparing detailed country-by-country reports, as well as annual local file reports consistent with country regulations. We’ll also help prepare your company’s master file transfer pricing report and scrutinize your documentation annually to reduce the risk of an audit.
Strategy & Planning
Transfer pricing is as much about increasing tax efficiency as it is about minimizing risk. Our transfer pricing consultants analyze your company’s transfer pricing structure and recommend policy changes that could reduce your global tax liability and increase the efficiency of your transfer pricing structure, as well as eliminate areas of vulnerability.
Intellectual Property Valuation
Valentiam Transfer Pricing Group can also help your company value its intellectual property, whether it includes technology or product intangibles, marketing assets, brand names, customer lists, or anything else, for transfer pricing purposes.
In the event of a transfer pricing dispute with a tax authority, we help you navigate the audit process. From preparing an analysis and defense of the policies in question to assisting with the exchange of information, our goal is to minimize any potential tax adjustments that may arise as a result of the audit.
Operational Transfer Pricing
Beyond theoretical planning and policy discussions, we help you actively prepare for the day-to-day aspects of transfer pricing, including pricing individual intercompany transactions that accurately reflect your new policies. We take the time to gain an intimate understanding of your company, its financial systems, current transfer pricing policies, and product flows to design a transfer pricing strategy tailored specifically for you. Our operational transfer pricing strategy recommendations always take your company's capabilities—both in terms of technology and manpower—into consideration give you the best chance for success.
