Theme: Facilitating international trade through efficient tax systems
Date: 16th -17th June 2021
Time: 8.30am – 3.30pm
Venue/Platform: Virtual Symposium
In the past few years there has been increased attention on activities of multinational enterprises (MNEs) in Kenya and the East Africa region with a particular focus on pricing arrangements of transactions between related parties. Economists and analysts around the world are aligned in saying that the economic crisis, that will follow the lockdown imposed by the pandemic, will be worse than the financial crisis of 2008. If this will be the case, multinational groups (“MNEs”) should carefully evaluate how this crisis will impact their transfer pricing (“TP”) policies in place as well as many other Transfer Pricing related aspects.
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. 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
Appreciate the importance of international transfer pricing to multinational enterprise groups and tax administrations.
