Van Andel Global Trade Center Presents International Finance Transfer Pricing Customs Valuation & Foreign Exchange

Transfer pricing and foreign exchange are increasingly critical financial issues affecting profit and the bottom line as more U.S. firms increase business around the world. U.S. and foreign tax and customs authorities have been dedicating additional resources to ensure compliance with both transfer pricing laws as well as customs valuation regulations. Customs value transfer pricing is a major tax compliance issue that is often overlooked when companies examine their transfer pricing strategies, and can potentially result in significant penalties.



During the economic downturn, many governments around the world pursued expansionary fiscal policies that have impacted foreign exchange rates worldwide and affected the competitiveness of businesses in different regions of the world. At this seminar, learn about basic strategies to reduce your exposure to the three main types of foreign exchange risk, reduce uncertainty in transfer pricing, and identify best practices to manage foreign exchange and improve internal transfer pricing policies, processes, and documentation.
