Transfer Pricing has become a major problem with international multinationals, particularly in developing countries. Revenue services are becoming more skilled in the area of transfer pricing, and every year sees a dramatic increase in companies being required to engage with revenue services on transfer pricing. This Postgraduate Diploma has been developed to assist multinationals and tax practitioners alike, who need to increase their skills in transfer pricing.

The central aim of this course, which consists of 4 modules, is to provide a comprehensive grounding in all aspects of transfer pricing. The modules address the important issues within the sector, drawing out key points to ensure you gain a thorough understanding of the topics before completing the final assignment. On completion you will have a thorough understanding of the key transfer pricing principles. The programme will equip you to not only implement the general principles of transfer pricing, but will also enable you to engage with the relevant authorities in the territories that you are currently working in.
