Investment in real estate often involves a number of investments, structured in a somewhat similar fashion. Real estate investment therefore lends itself to designing and implementing group wide transfer pricing policies for interest rates, finance companies, holding companies, profit-participating loans etc. at an early stage of making investments. The transfer pricing issues to be addressed typically include:
Companies operating in the Commercial & Industrial products space (e.g., business to business sales of precision components and machinery) form an important sub-set of Questro International’s client base.
Such companies undertake a wide variety of transfer pricing projects, however, in recent years we have seen a focus on transfer pricing projects that seek to create innovative internal transfer pricing models that create the right management incentives within the business. Typically, such clients have an established manufacturing base in Europe, a strong brand, and reputation for high quality components or machines. However, with increased competition and rapidly changing markets, they now need to navigate outsourcing production to lower cost markets, adopting a more centralised operating model, and navigating an increasingly complex international tax and compliance landscape.
For the Financial Services industry, cross border flows are usually the rule rather than the exception, and large parts of the industry could not function without a broad international footprint that mirrors the global financial markets, positioning of competitors, and needs of their customers. Our transfer pricing professionals working in this area provide clients with full support in addressing their transfer pricing challenges, from planning and consulting work, to documentation and operational implementation (including control frameworks and policy guidelines), to audit work and defence. We support a variety of taxpayers in the financial services sector from banks, to asset managers, insurance companies, and other market participants. All of our FS TP service professionals work on designing TP models to ensure that business entities comply with domestic and international transfer pricing regulations, and avoid contentious tax disputes.
We are often asked by clients what elements are required to make a great TP framework? Whilst the answer will always depend on the underlying fact pattern of the client, their overall tax policy and appetite for risk, a key element should be flexibility to respond to business and industry developments.
