BorderCrossings ... with Ernst & Young's transfer pricing and tax professionals
Transfer pricing touches nearly every area of your multinational operations, making it one of your key tax challenges and concerns. Increasingly well-staffed tax authorities are applying more sophisticated and sweeping transfer pricing tools, placing greater demands on you to document and defend your transfer pricing in more and more countries. To help you stay informed and able to adopt a more proactive stance in developing and defending your transfer pricing policies and practices, Ernst & Young is pleased to bring you this fourth installment of BorderCrossings - our monthly webcast series devoted to transfer pricing and related tax issues.
Financial transactions: not just for banks
The Canadian GE Capital court case and announcements from the Australian Tax Office highlight the significance and importance of treasury transactions for multinational firms. Financial transactions cover financial guarantee fees, inter-company loans, performance guarantees, insurance and reinsurance and other transactions that address intercompany transfers of risk. This webcast will highlight recent key developments and strategies to identify, document and potentially undertake planning strategies involving financial transactions.
The speakers will discuss:
- Heightened interest of tax authorities in examining financial transactions
- Challenges in pricing transactions like inter-company loans and loan guarantees
- Implications of the GE Capital court case
- Transfers of risk in a broader context: The OECD's new chapter on business restructuring
During this live, interactive webcast, you will have the opportunity to ask questions through the website and the panelists will answer as many of your questions as time permits.
This program will be of interest to vice presidents/directors of tax/international tax/transfer pricing, directors of finance, CFOs, international tax managers and tax accountants looking for the latest practical information and planning ideas to support their global business initiatives. We hope you will be able to join us.
