Transfer pricing (TP) functional analysis is a critical aspect for companies. A proper analysis provides strong supporting documentation on where value is created.

When challenged by the tax authorities, companies with proper functional analysis documentation will be able to provide evidence of the established transaction price between related parties.

This event organised by the Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals will examine different approaches in developing functional analysis, how to get the analysis right and the best practices to put in place.

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

New Opportunities for Investors and Companies in Myanmar

Venue: SBF Centre, 160 Robinson Road, Level 6, SBFC Seminar Room 2 and 3

Myanmar, branded by the International Monetary Fund as Asia's "final frontier", has a population of 60 million and GDP growth per capita of 7 to 8 per cent annually.

Its relatively young consumer market offers great potential for suppliers of basic goods and services, and the country is connected to China, India, Bangladesh, Thailand and Laos, providing access to a market of approximately three billion people.

In a move to expand the investment opportunities, the list of activities a foreign investor is allowed to carry out only under a joint venture with a Myanmar citizen or company has been cut significantly.

This seminar will highlight the sectors affected and how the move spells potential opportunity for investors and companies.
