Recent Matter Highlights:
- Transfer Pricing for Family Office: Designed and implemented an efficient, user-friendly, scalable practice to identify and allocate costs incurred by family office employees that are eligible to be charged to family-owned operating companies. The strategy significantly reduces the taxable loss position for the family office and the taxable income positions of many family-owned businesses, thereby providing a meaningful and ongoing tax benefit to the family.
- Transfer Pricing for Domestic Tax and Management Purposes: Designed and implemented a transfer pricing system intended to appropriately allocate the combined operating profit or loss attributable to multiple entities engaged in the supply-chain of a handset (i.e., smart phone) insurance business through the application of the RPSM. The model allows the company to effectively manage the performance of the entities involved in this supply chain in order to become more streamlined, efficient and ultimately profitable while also bring the organization into compliance with domestic transfer pricing rules.
- Global TP Documentation: Prepared transfer pricing documentation (Master File and Local Files) in accordance with the current, dynamic regulatory environments of Germany, Ireland, Singapore and the U.S. for historical transfer pricing positions over a three year period (2018-2020) that saw two global business restructurings. When delivering the documentation to the client, Bennett Thrasher presented transfer pricing planning opportunities that reduce the group's annual income tax burden by more than our 3X of our one-time advisory professional fees.
