THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
Transfer Pricing Workshop
Venue: Crown Plaza Hotel, Nairobi
Date: 20th–21st June 2019
Time: 9am to 4pm
This 2-day workshop will provide a world-class programme, delivered by highly qualified professionals from the tax authority, professional services provider as well as taxpayers, providing an all-rounder perspective of the topic.
Focus shall be on the Transfer Pricing challenges in the developing world (with special focus on Africa) and tax transparency in the post-BEPS era. The new 2017 Transfer Pricing Guidelines (TPG) can be considered a game changer that is expected to change how we currently view transfer pricing outcomes in many situations. This calls for change in how tax authorities approach transfer pricing audits and how multinational companies trade with each other and document such transactions.
To appreciate the ever-changing aspects of transfer pricing and comprehend these challenges, it is essential to fully understand the transfer pricing principles and methodologies and their practical application. There is also need to look at the impact technological advancements will have on transfer pricing in general and how we can leverage on that for efficiencies and accuracy in our documentations.
