Recording Available: Wednesday, September 23, 2020
As the world grapples with the unprecedented economic disruptions brought by the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, multinational enterprises (MNEs) in the U.S. and Canada are also confronted by a unique challenge - transfer pricing. Most businesses are now forced to adjust their transfer prices, analysis, and documentation and revisit their force majeure clauses to look for alternative means of fulfilling their contract obligations. Thus, creating a profound strain on the operations of MNEs.
Businesses and practitioners must keep themselves abreast of the regulatory developments in this field of regulation. They must also recalibrate their transfer pricing practices in existing supply chains and adopt practical strategies to ensure business continuity amid the crisis.

Speakers will also offer practical strategies to overcome drawbacks in this time of uncertainty.
