There is increased scrutiny on transfer pricing (TP) matters from the tax authorities globally.

TP, the transaction price between related companies, is an emerging area of tax controversy.

It is essential to know the various dispute-resolution alternatives available in key regional markets. In addition, maintaining proper TP documentation is critical for firms to support their position when queried by the tax authorities.

Register for this event organised by the Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals for a better understanding of managing tax risks in this key area of international business.

With a combined population of 1.9 billion and a nominal gross domestic product of US$4.5 trillion (S$6.3 trillion), South- east Asia and India are slated to be Asia's next growth engines.

The Committee on the Future Economy has similarly identified both markets as having strong potential that companies can tap.

The forum will bring together government and business leaders from Asean and India to discuss the outlook and opportunities of these markets.

There will be two plenary sessions focusing on manufacturing and consumerism as key sectors driving cross-border trade and investment flows across these markets.

Speakers will share their insights on how economic integration, connectivity and technology can play a part in company strategies to unlock the growth potential in both regions.
