BorderCrossings ... with Ernst & Young’s transfer pricing and tax professionals
A monthly webcast series addressing US-Canada transfer pricing and related multinational tax issues
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 BorderCrossings - a new monthly webcast series devoted to transfer pricing and related tax issues.
Transfer pricing and controversy: Canada-US perspective on audit and controversy issues
Faced with a slowly recovering global economy and record deficits, governments are increasingly focused on raising revenues through taxation and this means only one thing - an unprecedented audit environment. Governments are ramping up their enforcement efforts and transfer pricing audits are increasing in significance, intrusiveness and scope. Topics will include:
- Challenging transfer pricing issues between Canada and the US
- Leading practices to manage audits and controversy
- Dealing with difficult field auditors
- When to settle with audit
- When to move to appeals or competent authority
- Prospects of joint IRS-CRA audits
- Information disclosure and access to information
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.
