Why take a boring technical OECD transfer pricing course when in practice, unless you have a dedicated transfer pricing staff, you, the regional CFO, financial controller or tax/finance manager of an MNC, will likely leave technical matters to advisors and focus on TP as part of a much broader portfolio and/or are too busy implementing TP within the limitations of the organizations that you operate in.
This course will take a lively interactive approach to the practical aspect of commercial transfer pricing with simple easy-to-understand explanation of key concepts and commercial real life examples to show TP in practice.
