Any time related parties on different sides of international borders conduct business, the taxing authorities from both countries want to insure both entities are recognizing the appropriate income and paying their "fair share" of taxes. Generally referred to as "transfer pricing," the transactions may be related to tangible goods, intangible goods, services provided by either entity to the other and/or financing arrangements. Who is at risk? U.S. subsidiaries of foreign parent companies and U.S. parents with foreign subsidiaries are at risk of audit and having their intercompany transactions scrutinized by both the Internal Revenue Service and the corresponding foreign taxing authority.
