Transfer Pricing

Transfer pricing has emerged in the global economy as one of the most important tax issues for multinational companies. Transfer pricing is an important driver of shareholder value, providing an opportunity to optimise the value of a business by effective tax rate and foreign tax credit management.

Managing transfer pricing risk remains critical in an increasingly aggressive environment. The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has continued to focus on transfer pricing and is currently involved in several major audits that could lead to substantial adjustments. Transfer pricing has already been flagged as one of the key focus areas of the recently-introduced Large Business Centre. Consequently, organisations need to understand their approach to transfer pricing risk and dealings with SARS.

The PwC transfer pricing team will work with you to ensure your organisation’s international financial position is effectively managed, your fiscal risk is covered and you are in the best possible position to take advantage of the benefits of globalisation and international restructuring as value chains are remodelled to increasingly focus on customer satisfaction.

With unrivalled transfer pricing expertise in South Africa, our team also draws upon global networks to offer you access to specialist knowledge and leading edge tools and solutions relevant to your industry.
