International Tax and Transfer Pricing Services


The rise of multinational trade has triggered increased scrutiny from international tax authorities. Complying with the differing regulations and restrictions of these various taxing jurisdictions has become more and more difficult as each new global market, international investor, and multi-branch enterprise introduces new tax planning and compliance challenges. To respond to these demands and to leverage all possible tax strategies, a trusted professional partner with extensive international transfer pricing experience and a network of global relationships can make a world of difference.

Global Opportunities Require More Complex Tax Strategies

The EKS&H International Advisory Group (IAG) focuses our international tax services on ensuring compliance with all applicable global laws and regulations while minimizing your tax burden both at home and abroad. To help you succeed in the global marketplace, our multinational tax experts stay up to date on current developments in business practices and tax legislation around the globe. Our services include:
Transfer Pricing
Transfer pricing services assist in determining the pricing related parties charge for goods, services, loans and financial transactions, and intellectual property. Thanks to the ongoing rise and increasing importance of the global economy, pricing for intercompany transactions assumes a greater role in the successful strategic management of corporate tax policy.

Our transfer pricing services include:
  • Transfer pricing documentation
  • Risk assessment
  • Planning and consulting
  • Dispute resolution
To remain competitive in this challenging environment, business leaders should consider forming an IC-DISC, a simple solution to reducing cost and improving profit margin. The IC-DISC is the only remaining U.S. export incentive and any U.S. business exporting products or services might want to analyze its potential benefits.
Expatriate and Foreign National Tax Services
As companies expand globally, sending employees from their home countries to foreign countries enables businesses to capitalize on emerging markets while limiting the investment of hiring large local management staff. Our experienced expatriate and foreign national tax professionals can assist with individual employee tax compliance, compensation, and bank account reporting as well as organization tax consulting, including residency determination, budget and expense projections, and withholding calculations.

Our international tax specialists have provided strategies for international tax compliance and transfer pricing to firms with operations throughout the world, including Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. In fact, more than 35% of our revenue comes from clients with international operations, including half of our firm’s largest tax clients.

  • Foreign tax credits
