Between the Uprights: Valuations in Tax and Transfer Pricing

DLA Piper's Transfer Pricing Team are delighted to invite you to the second Masterclass of 2019. The event is free to attend and would be of interest to all in-house tax functions who use valuations in their tax returns and TP documentation connected to their companies internal and external transaction, as well as in-house commercial and finance colleagues who are called upon by Tax to support a filing position for a transaction. This session will help explain what your Tax colleagues need in tax audit defense.

Our in-house economists will explain:

  • Valuation standards and why they are important
  • Methods to apply and when
  • Defending valuation assumptions under tax audit

We will be joined by colleagues from IPT, who will explain the legal aspects to consider in a valuation and how to work proactively with your legal and commercial colleagues in achieving and documenting a valuation that works for all.

Who should attend?

Tax and legal personnel engaged in tax and transfer pricing strategy, management and controversy.

Why attend?

Attendees will get an understanding of how tax authorities approach valuations. We will discuss why a valuation performed for transfer pricing purposes does not necessarily always converge to a valuation performed for other purposes based on a different valuation standard. We will discuss valuation approaches companies have taken, including practical considerations for defending valuation assumptions in a tax audit. DLA Piper will address this issue holistically with our multi-disciplinary team of former government and policy advisors, economists, lawyers and former in-house tax professionals.

Valuation is a standalone topic which is rarely covered, but is regularly part of tax returns. DLA Piper's Transfer Pricing team will address this issue holistically with our multi-disciplinary team of former government and policy advisors, economists, lawyers and in-house tax professionals. Our approach is to conduct rigorous, evidence-based, quantitative and qualitative analysis, with an eye on controversy mitigation.
