Transfer pricing

Our team of transfer pricing specialists will work with you to ensure your transfer pricing aligns with your commercial requirements, reporting obligations and your global tax strategy.
Transparency in transfer pricing

The transfer pricing landscape in Australia has fundamentally shifted with the introduction of a new transfer pricing legislative regimeas well as persistent legislative reforms triggered by the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project. This has prompted a significant increase in reporting and transparency across multinational enterprises, along with an escalation in tax authority review and audit.

It is now more important than ever to ensure that your transfer pricing risks are effectively managed both in Australia and internationally. Regardless of the transaction, you must ensure correct pricing while also supporting the price through documentation that complies with transfer pricing laws and tax authority guidance in each location.
