With governments paying increasing attention to the prices applying in transactions between the related parties, transfer pricing has become one of the most important topics for international companies in recent years. Transfer pricing is the pricing strategy applied to transfers among related parties of tangible and intangible assets and services, including intellectual property and all kinds of financial products and services. An improper investment structure and/or transaction model increases a corporate group's tax burden and exposes the cross-border business between related parties to avoidable tax risk. Therefore, the most important issue that a group of related parties must face is how to utilize global specialization and division of labor to manage the business effectively on the one hand, and on the other, select the most suitable transfer pricing strategy for the chosen business model.
