Four Seasons Silicon Valley,
Palo Alto

The new cutting edge forum for transfer pricing professionals in Silicon Valley and beyond!

Meet Transfer Pricing professionals from across the West Coast and beyond to share insights and best practice advice on the latest TP challenges affecting the region

What's On the Agenda for 2018?

Transfer Pricing and the Digital Economy: Where are we now?

With the OECD's interim report on the tax challenges of digitization, Digital economy taxation remains at the forefront of the global tax agenda for policy makers and tax authorities alike. Our digital economy panel will assemble in-house transfer pricing leaders at the forefront of the digital economy industries, to discuss what latest global policy developments will mean for their businesses and what can be done to help shape policy in this area.

Transfer Pricing Controversy & Dispute Resolution

The transfer pricing controversy landscape shows no sign of slowing down, with many cases having received worldwide attention in the past year. With many tax professionals expecting the number of transfer pricing disputes to rise in the foreseeable future, this session will explore the current controversy landscape on the West Coast in a post BEPS world, and offer advice and best practice when resolving transfer pricing disputes.

US Tax Reform: Upcoming Challenges and Considerations

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has far reaching implications for multinationals on a global scale. This session will explore the potential impact that US Tax Reform may have on businesses from both an inbound and an outbound perspective, with a particular focus on BEAT and GILTI, the reaction from the rest of the world, and explore what multinationals are doing in preparation for the regulatory changes ahead.

Value Chain Analysis – Practical Guidance

Ever since the BEPS project put value creation of the heart of the proposed changes to the international tax system, pressure has been mounting on Multinationals to unequivocally demonstrate that where profits are taxed actually corresponds to where value is created within the organization. We will endeavor to provide a comprehensive overview of the benefits and commonly applied methodologies when preparing your VCA in-house. 

Experiences with APAs: When, Where & Why?

Advance Pricing Agreements have been receiving worldwide attention in recent years. But are APA’s really suitable for all multinational corporations? This session will assemble senior in-house transfer pricing professionals to share their experiences with APAs and offer practical advice and guidance on when a business should opt for an APA, where should you opt for an APA, and in which instances is an APA the best option.

Hard to Value Intangibles and Comparability Challenges

Intangibles, pose a true challenge in terms of establishing comparability.  In a post-BEPS world, where one-sided transfer pricing will no longer be sufficient, we expect more focus on proactively supporting the profits associated with intangibles. OECD's consultation on HTVI continues to fuel this timely debate, so expect an up to the minute analysis on how this  is likely to develop and what it will mean for your industry.


We're delighted to announce we will be at a brand new venue for 2018! The Four Seasons Silicon Valley is ideally located in the heart of Palo Alto and only a short distance away from the city of San Francisco. 

Delegates are responsible for the arrangement and payment of their own travel and accommodation. KNect365 have arranged special rates on rooms at the conference venue. Please enquire today.
