Monday, 14 September 2020 | Transfer pricing controversy (1 pm BST)

In this webcast, panelists discuss transfer pricing issues in relation to distribution activities.

Post Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS), multinational enterprises are subject to intense transfer pricing audit scrutiny, and transfer pricing controversy is more than ever, one of the hot topics in international tax law. To help address these audit risks and to navigate this audit landscape, the EY organization is hosting a series of webcasts focusing on transfer pricing controversy.

In these webcasts, EY tax controversy professionals from various jurisdictions will discuss different transfer pricing issues which are getting the attention of tax authorities by way of short, practical case studies of audit situations and current transfer pricing tax court decisions.

On 14 September 2020, we will look into topics relating to distributors:

  • EMEIA: overview of transfer pricing issues relating to distribution activities, based on input provided by EY transfer pricing controversy professionals across EMEIA.
  • France: distribution and the digital economy.
  • Germany: Advance Pricing Agreements regarding distribution activities, an approach to manage transfer pricing controversy risk.
  • Russia: year-end adjustments and marketing intangibles.
