Transfer Pricing Summit—Nationally Recognized Transfer Pricing Experts Teach You What You Need To Know Today!

Kat Jennings, CEO

Now that the United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union, the question of how this will affect the global economy is one of the crucial issues for U.S. multinationals. The effects will have far reaching implications in transfer pricing and cross border activities. U.S. Multinationals are already considering the impact on and possible outcomes the vote will have on their businesses. In addition, to the direct trade effect, business investment around the globe is likely to be stifled somewhat due to the heightened uncertainty about the global implications of BREXIT and the tightening of financial conditions. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from our tax experts, who will discuss and analyze the effects on transfer pricing and the global outlook on this decision, as well as, the OECD’s latest action plans under the BEPS (base erosion profit shifting) project and modifications to bilateral tax treaties.
