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.
