Transfer pricing has a multibillion-dollar impact on corporations worldwide. Governments are increasing their strict enforcement. Failure to comply with sections 482, 6038A, and 6662 can lead to heavy penalties hitting your organization. But there's help.

Section 482. Completely covered. With the two volumes of Transfer Pricing Handbook, Second Edition, you'll get a complete, practical analysis of the final transfer pricing regulations, including cost sharing, valuation of intangibles, and audit strategies. You'll explore current taxation under IRC Sections 482, 6038A, and 6662 - plus legislative and regulatory developments from 1986 to the present. This contributed volume written by international tax experts gives you the global scope of transfer pricing. You'll also review a discussion of taxation of foreign-owned U.S. corpora-tions. Avoid IRS penalties by mastering the transfer pricing regulations!

Why get the facts on transfer pricing?

  • Only half of multinationals in recent pricing transfer audits were able to defend their prices well enough
    to avoid adjustments.

  • 63% of the parent companies said they've faced recent transfer pricing audits. Half of those had their transfer
    prices adjusted by authorities.

  • 80% of corporations surveyed expect to face a transfer pricing examination somewhere in the world within the next two years.
