ARLINGTON, Virginia and PARIS, Jan. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA and Baker McKenzie today announced that their fifth annual Global Transfer Pricing Conference, in association with the Tax Management Education Institute, will be held March 27-28 in Paris.

The event brings together top government officials from key OECD and non OECD countries, along with leading transfer pricing experts from the business community who will wrestle with the topics creating the most uncertainty for multinational companies.
"Transfer Pricing has never come under such scrutiny," said Bloomberg BNA Transfer Pricing Report Managing Editor Molly Moses. "Every business is keen to hear the latest on the European Union tax probes of various high-profile companies, the recent OECD guidance on both profit splits and permanent establishments, and the differences in how countries are analyzing the 'value chain.'"
"Transfer pricing risks has become the biggest concern for the corporate tax function. They can be huge monetary-wise and have impact beyond tax, for instance on the corporate image," Caroline Silberztein, Chair of Baker McKenzie Global Transfer Pricing practice added. "This year's Global Transfer Pricing Conference will offer insights and practical considerations on the biggest transfer pricing risks and challenges faced across Europe and globally, including the new transfer pricing documentation paradigm, the increased use of profit split, and the positions asserted by emerging economies."
