Global Tax Planning & Structuring

When acquiring or establishing operations in new jurisdictions, the legal entity structure taxpayers choose will likely affect the global effective tax rate for the enterprise and its shareholders. With appropriate planning, a taxpayer may find the right structure can reduce the global effective tax rate. Forvis Mazars can help you identify an efficient structure based on your specific attributes and short-term and long-term business goals to help you move with momentum. To effectively advise our clients on these complex transactions, our tax professionals have proficient knowledge of corporate nonrecognition tax provisions, the partnership tax rules under Subchapter K, as well as the judicial doctrines such as step transaction, business purpose, and transitory ownership/existence. To the extent that there is a foreign entity or operations involved, we have the tailored intelligence of U.S. international tax rules and familiarity with foreign tax laws to help drive your business forward.

Transfer Pricing

Transfer pricing commonly refers to the pricing of goods, services, or intangibles within a multinational organization and is one of the most complex and closely scrutinized areas of tax, involving many stakeholders including companies, fiscal authorities, regulators, and intergovernmental bodies.

The rising volume of global trade within multinational enterprises has created a transfer pricing environment of unprecedented complexity. Companies must now comply with many transfer pricing rules and regulations, which has become time-intensive and costly. Accompanied by increased enforcement and public scrutiny, it is no surprise that transfer pricing remains a leading tax and risk management issue for companies worldwide.

At Forvis Mazars, we have transfer pricing specialists located across the U.S. who assist clients of all sizes with transfer pricing compliance, audit support, and consulting initiatives. We also work with our Praxity alliance firms to seamlessly serve clients with varying global footprints. You require a team of advisors who can assist you throughout the transfer pricing life cycle—from policy development and design to implementation and compliance. At Forvis Mazars, we work with all your stakeholders to develop and align your transfer pricing strategy with your global business operations and wider commercial goals. We routinely work with clients on transfer pricing services that consider people, processes, and the use of technology, to help meet compliance obligations, mitigate risk, and identify and deliver on opportunities to generate value to help you move with momentum.
