More and more fiscal authorities continue to develop their transfer pricing laws. The principles are common, although interpretations differ from one tax authority to another. Compliance takes time and patience, and the demands and penalties from authorities are increasing. There is greater emphasis on examination and audit activity to encourage compliance and ignoring this issue is not an option for any well-run business.

- audit support – sophisticated economic arguments, research and databases can help defend transfer pricing policies before the tax authorities
