Transfer pricing is one of the most significant tax issues for corporations having international operations. It attracts the scrutiny of tax authorities worldwide and continues to draw attention of more and more countries' tax legislatures. Because of the heavy impact of income allocations on the bottom line of a corporation's business, especially potentially forced ones, international tax and business professionals need to be very careful about their tax planning and compliance efforts in order to meet the established transfer pricing standards.

Transfer Pricing: Rules, Compliance and Controversy offers extensive yet clear guidance through the complex maze of U.S. transfer pricing rules. The book is authored by leading experts in the transfer pricing scene. Throughout the book, the authors cover all aspects of transfer pricing relevant to the practitioner, starting with general legal principles and apportionment methods, then moving on to more specific subjects such as transfers of tangible vs. intangible goods and the impact of e-commerce and U.S. customs on transfer pricing, and finally exploring highly practical matters like procedural strategies and post-examination procedures. Transfer Pricing: Rules Compliance and Controversy (4th Edition) is now available in an eBook format which you can download to your computer instantly.
