International Taxes Workshop
Date: 15th–16th August 2019
Venue:Hilton Hotel, Nairobi
Time: 9am to 4pm
Globalization has made the world a smaller village. More than ever before, International trade has been on an upward trend with organizations looking outside their territorial boundaries for new markets. This expansion comes with a myriad of regulatory requirements and challenges including compliance with transfer pricing regulations in the different countries where multinational organizations have presence.
Transfer pricing affects the supply chain and the financial system of an organization in critical ways: questions like where we source our raw materials or finished products, where and to whom do we sell our products, how do we finance our business; bring to the fore potential transfer pricing risks in a big way. These invisible taxes pose unique challenges to national tax functions can have significant impacts — on cash flow, absolute costs and risk exposures. As such potential risks arising from related party engagements must be monitored and managed in a more pro-active manner to mitigate these in good time and save businesses their best asset: reputation.
The purpose of this workshop is to enable the participants to gain a deeper understanding and acquire skills necessary for the appreciation of how transactions between related parties, be it sale and purchase of goods, financial, intangibles or services oriented, may impact on their tax obligations primarily in Kenya, but also in other jurisdictions.
In this interactive workshop, ICPAK has put together a comprehensive training program that will be executed by a well-regarded transfer pricing team drawn from across the region. Some of the topics that will be covered include:
- Residence v. source taxation:
- Global trends in taxing rights
- Global Tax Reset

- Recent Developments in International Tax & Transfer Pricing: Major trends and impact
- Permanent Establishments – Attribution of Profits and BEPs Action 7
