Transfer pricing is a term used to describe all aspects of intercompany pricing arrangements between related business entities, including transfers of tangible goods, the provision of services, transfers of intellectual property and loans and other financing transactions.
Transfer pricing affects a multinational company’s tax planning and its financial statements. Transfer pricing has been given a higher profile by both the Internal Revenue Service, as evidenced by stricter compliance rules, and by foreign tax authorities as more countries pass transfer pricing legislation and tighten up compliance requirements.
