Multinational companies that engage in cross-border transactions spend significant time and effort designing transfer pricing policies to meet applicable tax regulations. However, the effective implementation of transfer pricing policies can be a complex, resource-intensive and risky process. Failure to do so can lead to significant and material business risks, such as financial reporting issues, increased tax liabilities, misstated financial statements and higher costs in terms of intercompany accounting and tax compliance.


How KPMG can help

Transfer pricing implementation requires significant integration and collaboration across many independent functional areas of an organization, including tax, finance and accounting, operations, and information technology. Each company has a unique set of “operational” transfer pricing challenges. Typical challenges include data management, information technology enablement, cross-functional process integration, communication and accountability.

KPMG’s Operational Transfer Pricing (OTP) services help companies to integrate their transfer pricing policies with day-to-day operations, improve the integrity of their intercompany accounting, increase operating efficiencies, and reduce risk. We can assess your current-state environment against leading practices, design processes and controls, and implement enabling technologies.

Potential benefits arising from our OTP services include:

  • Increased transparency into transfer pricing results
  • Enhanced monitoring and adjustment capabilities
