Elvira Allvin, Deloitte Sweden, is a tax partner and is also the leader of the Swedish transfer pricing practice, which was recognized as Sweden Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year in 2017 by International Tax Review. Since the beginning of 2017, Elvira also leads the newly established Nordic transfer pricing practice of Deloitte. She has 18 years of experience as a transfer pricing adviser in various jurisdictions. Elvira's international experience includes four years of work in the US and Germany with transfer pricing teams in New York, Boston, and Duesseldorf.
Elvira has extensive experience advising on business model optimization, effective documentation strategies, policy implementation, and controversy management. More recently, Elvira has advised many of the largest Swedish multinationals how to align their transfer pricing models with BEPS requirements both from an operational, policy and compliance perspective. Given the increasingly complex tax environment and diligent local tax authorities, Elvira has also assisted clients pro-actively secure their position by approaching the Swedish Tax Agency by way of APAs or other available channels.
Over the years, Elvira has advised many of the largest Swedish multinational companies, as well as other global players in a broad range of industries, including the manufacturing, high technology, financial services, energy, and services industries. Given Elvira's multicultural background, her advisory services may be provided in English, Swedish, German, Spanish and French, as requested by clients. Elvira is a guest lecturer at transfer pricing seminars and a frequent author of articles on transfer pricing. Given the controversy environment post-BEPS, Elvira has held trainings both for the Swedish Tax Agency and for judges, who rule in transfer pricing cases in the Swedish courts.
Elvira's education includes a BA in International Studies and Economics from Boston College and graduate management courses at Harvard University. Elvira is a certified tax adviser and has been recognized in Legal Media Group's Women in Tax Leaders and World's Leading Women in Business Law.
