OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and Tax Administrations Condensed version and Transfer Pricing Features of Selected Countries 2009.

Coming soon to IBFD's Tax Travel Companions 2009 series is your handy reference guide to transfer pricing worldwide.

Transfer pricing has become one of the most important issues for multinational companies as they strive to reduce taxable profits in these difficult economic times.

At the same time tax authorities worldwide are seeking to prevent revenue loss through the implementation and enforcement of transfer pricing regulations.

And the OECD is set to introduce further changes to its guidelines.

Keeping up to speed with all of this change is a challenge.

That's why Taxand has collaborated with the IBFD to produce this guide to give companies an immediate overview of global transfer pricing requirements.

The book will contain the official text of the new - (expected to be released in September 2009) -OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and Tax Administrations together with information provided by Taxand specialists on transfer pricing in 29 countries. Each chapter gives a concise description of the current transfer pricing laws, guidelines and methodologies in practice in each country. Because the information has been provided and assessed by Taxand transfer pricing practitioners and IBFD professionals used to working with multinationals, the content presents a domestic as well as an international context. By standardising the structure of the chapters, quick and easy comparisons between countries can be made.

Taxand's take
Keeping up to date with transfer pricing regulatory change worldwide is a big challenge. Use this guide as a reference tool to get you started. Then consider seeking advice to approach transfer pricing not merely as a matter of risk management but also as a highly effective international tax planning tool, taking all areas of taxation into account.
