Online CPE Transfer Pricing

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CPE Transfer Pricing Webinar. Valuating intangible properties, such as patents and trademarks, is among every company's top priorities as it is the basis of transfer pricing and many business and commercial transactions. However, many companies still struggle with the complexities of documenting and defending their intangibles positions. Erroneous valuation and analysis could incur various dilemmas significantly impacting business assets, including tax positions relating to intangibles or simply complex intercompany transactions. To mitigate these risks, it is essential for businesses to ensure an intricate yet doable strategic approach that would entail consistency in the processing and reporting of data to help them arrive at a more realistic and accurate intangible property valuation, especially with regard to new OECD transfer pricing approaches toward intangibles.

In this Webcast, a notable panel of distinguished leaders and intellectual property (IP) professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide and present an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent valuation methodologies. Speakers will also share best practices in calculating damages in IP valuation.

Key topics include:

  • Intangibles and Transfer Pricing Valuation: An Overview
  • Latest Valuation Methodologies
  • Calculating Damages in IP Valuation
  • Pitfalls and Best Practices
  • What Lies Ahead
