The following topics will be discussed by the participants:
– Coordinating international transfer prices between tax, controlling, planning and IT departments – including practical examples.
– Licensing or transferring functions? Accounting for intangible goods and services at year”s end? Risk or opportunity?
– Exchange-rate fluctuations, foreign currency uncertainty and quantitative fluctuations – when must transfer prices be adjusted?
– Sharing experiences with transfer pricing methods in connection with company audits – Is Cost Plus out?
– Delineating boundaries on permanent establishments- News from the OECD – What should you do?

The aim of the Working Group initiative is to achieve more clarity in the ever more complex field of transfer pricing, in particular for companies and corporate groups operating internationally. Heiko Kotschenreuther will provide information about regulations and recent changes, and will suggest practical approaches, using numerous case examples from his more than 20 years of transfer pricing experience. In order to enable an intensive exchange of information and know-how, discussion groups will be limited to a maximum of 8 participants.
