Transfer pricing (TP) benchmarking analysis is used to establish the transaction price between related companies.

It is an essential part of TP documentation, required to support the taxpayer's position to the tax authorities.

Being a potential area of controversy that may result in queries from the authorities, companies need to get their benchmarking right from the start.

Register for this event, organised by the Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals (SIATP), for a better understanding on what is involved in TP benchmarking and learn the best practices to manage tax risks.

For information and registration, e-mail enquiry@siatp.org.sg or call 6597-5719 and 6597-5714.

Every organisation is vulnerable to crises. Regardless of the severity and duration of the impact, a crisis affects all.

Customers cancel orders, employees get questioned, shareholders become worried and competitors seize the opportunities - your company's reputation and business will be at risk.

In today's complex and evolving business environment, businesses are increasingly susceptible to disruptions.

Crisis management is crucial in ensuring minimal impact and recovery.

This workshop will teach the principles of crisis communication, how to come up with a plan for your company, and how to craft a message effectively.
