David R. Jarczyk, President,
- As a result of the global recession and governments’ desire to protect their tax revenues and domestic IP rights, IP valuation and intercompany licensing transaction oversight will become an increasingly important topic in 2012.
- Recent judicial precedent and controversy cases have set a clear mandate that transfer pricing experts must be as thorough as possible in performing due diligence surrounding their IP analyses in order to protect themselves and their analyses from tax authority scrutiny and other practitioners’ evidence.
- In turn, practitioners are relying heavily on market comparables, in the form of third-party licensing agreements, to provide a solid basis for analysis. These material contracts contain detailed royalty rate information and licensing terms that can provide some of the most defensible fact-based evidence.
- Yet, it is not enough for practitioners to simply use market comparables to defend their position; rather, they must implement sound, case-specific economic analysis – including a detailed review of comparability factors under the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines and US Transfer Pricing Regulations– in order to prove and protect the reasonableness of their transfer pricing analyses.
Who Should Attend:
- Senior Corporate Executives
- Tax Directors
- Tax Managers
- Transfer Pricing Attorneys & CPAs
