Courses

2 credits

This course will focus on the practice techniques and tools to provide a foundation in transfer pricing economic analysis and preparation of transfer pricing studies. Students will have the opportunity to experience applying the concepts of Section 482 in everyday business situations. The objective will be to bring legal, economics and financial disciplines together. Through case studies and small group projects, we will examine core concepts of transfer pricing practice: actual application of transfer pricing methods (CPM, CUT, profit split and IP valuation techniques). We will also connect these techniques to implementation in current events such as BEPS action items 7, 8, 9, 10 and 13. We will use real case studies in an effort to ready students for actual transfer pricing practice.
