Event Details:

Proactive transfer pricing planning is critical for companies based in Asia who are looking to expand globally to European and American markets. Globally the transfer pricing environment has become very challenging and there are widespread tensions between capital exporting and capital importing countries in this area, creating a proliferation of alternative approaches by tax authorities. These are increasing the risk of double taxation and if taxpayers are not proactively addressing and anticipating these issues, they are likely to be put at peril.

This lunch roundtable is suited to Asian professionals and organisations who are in the process of expanding their operations globally or are planning to do so in the future.

The following be will topicswill be discussed:

• The tensions driving today’s global transfer pricing landscape.

• Observations on outdated transfer pricing strategies and why these no longer work

• Recent trends in the structuring of tax efficient supply chains focusing on Chinese and Hong Kong companies expanding into Europe.

•Strategies for managing risks and uncertainties.
