Transfer Pricing (TX)
Conference : 2017 Joint Fall CLE Meeting
Speaker(s) :
Download Format(s) :

$15.00


  • Transfer Pricing Methods in Tax Court: Economic Considerations and Implications. Recent judicial decisions in the United States suggest that specific transfer pricing methods should be relied upon – or carefully considered – when valuing intangible property (IP) in the context of controlled transactions; for example, the Comparable Uncontrolled Transaction (CUT) method. In practice, the CUT method is often difficult to apply, on account of the strict comparability criteria under Treas. Reg. section 1.482-4. The transfer pricing methods that practitioners use for purposes of planning and representation in controversies seldom align with the methods applied in landmark transfer pricing judicial decisions. The panel of economists will discuss the impact of recent decisions on how transfer pricing practitioners approach intellectual property (“IP”) planning and controversy, including evaluating hazards of litigation. Specifically, the panel will explore why the courts often use the CUT method although other transfer pricing methods (e.g., the Comparable Profit Split Method) may be more reliable under some circumstances. The panel will also discuss the importance of contractual language in the context of IP ownership and how contractual differences may be taken into account in the economic analysis. Moderator: Tim Gunning, EY, New York, NY Panelists: Clark Chandler, Economics Partners LLC, Washington, DC; Rebel Curd, Charles River Associates, San Francisco, CA; George Korenko, Edgeworth Economics LLC, Washington, DC

We will then consider expatriating, which has significant practical and tax consequences, some of which remain unsettled. Finally, the unique benefits of becoming a resident of Puerto Rico will prove to be the ideal solution for the right taxpayer, but will disappoint many unfamiliar with the finer points of this tax regime.

This presentation will also explain how the POAST could be used as the vehicle to receive assets from GRATs and CLATs (after they have matured) in such a way that it may be more beneficial than using other planning vehicles.
