WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Edgeworth Economics, a leading economic, financial, and quantitative consulting firm, today released Transfer Pricing: Intangible Property, Tangible Profits 2015. The report offers a practitioners’ view of critical regulatory developments and provides proprietary insight into the current state of transfer pricing for intangibles.
Both implemented and proposed regulatory rules have necessitated transactional attorneys focus on the accurate identification, documentation, and pricing of transferred intangible assets, such as patents, trademarks, and business methods. Regulators pay particular attention to whether the appropriate arm’s length consideration was extended for the transfer of intangible assets.
“The results of this survey indicate that practitioners are reacting cautiously to regulatory developments,” said Dr. George Korenko, Partner and Head of the Transfer Pricing Practice at Edgeworth Economics. “And with good reason—we found that many respondents, like our clients, already have tax arrangements that make good business and economic sense, and are consistent with the regulatory guidance.”
Among the key findings in the report:
- Most companies and law firms align transactional tax arrangements for intangibles around business operations.
- While many continue to take a wait-and-see approach to BEPS, some have begun reassessing their arrangements.
- Many respondents already have arrangements in place that are consistent with the BEPS guidance.
