New to transfer pricing? Check out our frequently asked questions.
Benchmarking analysis requires access to third party databases to perform the searches. For most taxpayers and accounting firms licensing of these databases is cost prohibitive as they don’t have the volume of benchmarking searches and transfer pricing is a complex tax area. So even if you licensed the software, do you know how to drive it? Just think when you license tax return software, it doesn’t make you a tax expert. This is where Transfer Pricing Benchmarking can assist! Our reports can also be delivered white label.
Type of transactions
We can perform benchmarking analysis for distributors, manufacturers, services, debt pricing, credit ratings, royalties and more, just ask!
Our benchmarking reports start at AUD$5,500 (plus 10% GST for Australian services) inclusive of the database fee, which covers most transactions. Orders covering debt pricing, credit ratings and more complicated transactions will be discussed with you, and a quote provided.
How to Order
We encourage you to be as involved in the benchmarking study as you feel comfortable with. The more information you provide, the more comparable the outcome will be to your company or client and hence more defendable in front of tax authorities.
