What We’ve Created
Packing the largest amount of valuable transfer pricing information into an accessible format was no easy feat…
It started with a survey in 2017 of the visitors of this website. Many professionals like yourself expressed their frustration with the information available. This gave us a unique insight into what’s missing in terms of education.
We looked at the competition. Most text books are as dry and confusing as the OECD. There are a few overpriced introduction courses. A number of specialized seminars. But there was nothing addressing the practical aspects of transfer pricing in the real world.
To fix this, we first:
- Summarized all the relevant content from the OECD.
- Looked at text-books and their reviews to find out what’s readers want to see.
- Scrutinized the public material of Big 4 and other transfer pricing firms.
- Analyzed the recent media frenzy – and the actual laws it resulted into.
- Talked to clients and students.
We then combined all this into a list of topics. After pinpointing what we already had in terms of material, we proceeded to add a new piece of missing content every week. We focused on the techniques we use in our daily work to make this material as practical as possible.
We combined everything into one complete guide, and edited it three times from start to finish. Then, a professional native speaker edited it twice.
This process took us well over a year. Imagine the time it would cost to figure this out yourself.
The Result: Transfer Pricing: Rules & Practice
We created a clear and easy-to-read guidebook, containing all the information you need.
It focuses on practice, rather than theory. The lessons learned from it can be readily applied to real business situations and transactions. With it, dealing with transfer pricing issues will be a breeze!
This book is easily understood – even if English is not your native tongue, or if you don’t have a background in (tax) law. We spell each topic out in detail, with images, examples and cases.
We worked hard to create the best product available. Because we invested the time to base this book on real world demand and experience, we are confident that it will answer all your questions.
What Is Covered
A number of chapters divide this exclusive book, each discussing a different topic. Each introduces essential tools and resources, and step-by-step systems you can use when meeting your regulatory obligations.
- Chapter 1 tells you exactly what transfer pricing is. It also defines key concepts in detail, such as: Associated Enterprises, Controlled Transactions and the Arm’s Length Principle.
- Chapter 2 outlines why transfer pricing is such a hot topic; diving into “profit shifting” and “erosion of the tax-base.” It shines a light on the attention it gets from politicians, lobby groups and the media, and how this contributed to the world-wide implementation of (broadly similar) legislation.
- Chapter 3 unveils a “Nine-Step Process” for pricing transactions. It reveals where you can find internal and external prices for your benchmark – and how to correctly analyze this data.
- Chapter 4 examines the five transfer pricing methods and details when each should be used. Next, we reveal a simple (but essential) tool to fortify your transfer pricing against challenges from tax authorities. This prevents potential audits and disputes.
- Chapter 5 raises the bar with “Seven Building Blocks” to construct documentation from scratch. By doing this yourself, you can save time and legal fees.
- Chapter 6 spells out how to craft a transfer pricing policy and integrate this in the day-to-day practice of a MN. It discusses overcoming the practical hurdles you’ll likely encounter. Lastly, it includes drafting tips for transfer pricing agreements, another major component that is often overlooked.
- Chapter 7 isolates common focus points of tax authorities, and presents five measures you can take to avoid audits and disputes.
- Annex I includes additional guidance on the creation of the Master File, the Local File and the Country-by-Country Report.
As you see, each essential aspect of transfer pricing is included. But this is just a summary. To see exactly what is covered, make sure to check out the Table of Contents…

“Thank you for these materials! I am reading through them currently. The book is well organized and easy to understand with good examples which makes it enjoyable.”
But that's not all...
Bonus 1 – Transfer Pricing Training Module:
To test if you're ready for battle, we created a Transfer Pricing Training Module. This dynamic and challenging training sharpens your instincts, and prepares you for a life in the trenches of the modern transfer pricing practice.
It starts with twenty multiple choice questions. Most can easily be answered with the help of the book. Others require you to navigate your way through external sources – Introducing the exact-same resources professionals use on a daily basis.
Next, you’ll encounter six unique cases based on our experience in the field. These are more challenging. You’ll need to use everything in your new toolkit when exploring advanced topics such as:
- Assessing Transfer pricing risks.
- Calculating the tax effects of a business restructuring.
- Identifying "hidden" transactions.
- Consolidate income tax rates.
- Substantiating the selection of transfer pricing methods.
- Determining comparability.
- Isolating controlled transactions.
- Creating a transfer pricing policy.
- Implementing dispute avoiding measures.
- Multi-jurisdiction tax planning.
- Analyzing revenue thresholds for documentation requirements.
- And more...
This is currently not on the market anywhere else. And what's more, you can consume this training wherever you feel comfortable, and come back to refresh your knowledge as often as you like.
Currently, seminars are the most common way to train. They often cover only primary, or very specific topics, go too fast or too slow, and seldom teach you what you need to know. Moreover, they cost up to USD 1,000 USD to attend – excluding the costs for travel, hotels and hours lost.
And there's more...
Bonus 2 – Transfer Pricing Case Law:
There is an increasing number of transfer pricing disputes, which are often fought out in court. The resulting case law provides valuable insights on strategies and positions of taxpayers and tax authorities alike. Case law is where the rubber meets the road.
Accordingly, this second bonus cuts through seven interesting court cases like a laser. We analyze what the MNE in question did and how this led to a dispute. We look at the rulings, and provide analysis as to why the cases ended as they did.
Case law deepens your understanding of transfer pricing, and helps you become more knowledgeable and confident. What's interesting, is that you can see the lessons from our book directly back in court-rulings.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, this book is written based on the OECD Guidelines, which is what is being implemented worldwide. It is true there are small variations in the interpretations by domestic legislatiors. We account for those. The general principles, however, are the same everywhere.
More over, we have practical experience with transfer pricing in Europe, North- and South America and Asia (of course).
Yes, we wrote this material as simply as possible. One of the reason our articles are successful on the Internet is exactly because they are easy to read.
This means that even if your English isn’t 100% perfect, this book is by far the best option out there.
This book is written for a wide audience. This means everybody can grab it and quickly gain a deep understanding on transfer pricing. However, it is most useful for:
- In-house tax/finance professionals
- Accountants / Tax advisors
- Tax directors/managers
- Independent advisors
- Tax authorities
- Everybody else in need of a deeper understanding of transfer pricing
In short, because this was written for people like you. We addressed what the biggest challenges are, what information is missing, and what the biggest struggles are for understanding transfer pricing.
Next, we have a combined 19 years of professional working experience to quickly cut to the chase and tell you what is important. What methods are used and when. What tax authorities look at (and how to deal with them). How to implement a policy into an organization. Where to find good data to compare. Where to set prices. And much more!
Unfortunately, existing papers and books written on transfer pricing don’t cover the topic well. In addition, the guidelines from the OECD are too vague. But worse, nothing discusses the reality businesses face now transfer pricing regulation has been rolled out worldwide.
We fixed this. This book wasn’t created overnight. If you include the articles we used, this book was produced over a period of almost three years. During this time, we got a good idea of what is needed.
We are excited about this book! It can help you handle this topic better. Transfer pricing isn’t rocket-science. But it isn’t a picnic either. It surely is poorly explained; and not widely understood.
The most important players, such as the Big 4, do not want to reveal their tactics. This would mean more competition, and more informed clients. They have ZERO interest in this.
Luckily, you found this book. By reading it – and studying the examples, cases and questions – you’ll join a small group of insiders who understand transfer pricing.
I guess by now you are convinced this is great. I bet you have a few questions. How much does it cost? Am I guaranteed to get the result I need? How do I get my hands on it?
Before we dive into that, let's recap what you’re getting:
The Book – Transfer Pricing: Rules & Practice: The most complete guidebook on practical transfer pricing currently on the market. It's hard to place a value on this book, because it provides many short-cuts not found anywhere else:
- A basic strategy call with a transfer pricing expert to determine the best transfer pricing method would cost around USD 500-1,000. After all, they must completely analyze the business and the controlled transaction(s). Wouldn’t it be nice if you could handle this? Chapter 4 spells it all out.
- Firms often charge USD 5,000 or more for a Transfer Pricing Analysis of a controlled transaction. Chapter 3 gives you a “Nine Step Process” you can use to substantiate arm's length prices.
- A set of documentation can easily cost USD 10,000 or more if you’d ask one of the BIG 4 to handle it. When using our “Seven Building Blocks,” you don't need a third-party.
- Even one "Dispute Avoiding" suggestion mentioned in Chapter 7 could be the difference between a standard (busy) year-end closure, and finding yourself at the center of an audit.
- What other way is there to instantly improve your value in the work-place, by bringing a set of rare and in-demand skills to the table? Become the go-to-expert as far as transfer pricing is concerned.
Bonus 1 – Transfer Pricing Training: A fun and challenging set of questions, ranging from basic to advanced topics.
- Frankly, there is no other material that can be studied at your own pace, is accessible online, and doesn’t focus on a specific country. I found a Fundamentals of Transfer Pricing course from a famous tax institute, covering only the topics in the first two chapters of our guidebook.
The price they charge is: 674 USD (Excl VAT).
Bonus 2 – Case Law Review: A unique look under the veil of transfer pricing disputes by analyzing real-world court rulings.
- Imagine your first steps into case-law would consist of having to go through a 286-page court ruling. Luckily, we have done this for you. It comes as a free bonus, to the already extensive content in the book and training module.
You might expect to find all this value behind a massive price-wall. But I want to make this product inclusive, and available to a wide-range of visitors. Therefore, this complete package is available for only 197 USD.
This is less than you’d have to pay for one hour of my time, less than any one-day seminar out there, and far less than any course available.
