Global Transfer Pricing Forum - USA 2020

December 1 & 2, virtual event | Starts 9AM CST

The 20th ITR Global Transfer Pricing Forum USA is going virtual

The ITR Global Transfer Pricing Forum - USA 2020 is now a virtual event on December 1 & 2. Attracting over 400 attendees, tax and transfer pricing professionals will come together online to gain critical insight and advice on key TP issues facing today's taxpayers operating in the US.
 
Key topics to discuss will inevitably include the impact of Covid-19 on transfer pricing structures but will also focus on the introduction of BEPS 2.0 and its promise to transform the TP landscape, creating uncertainty around implementation, compliance and mitigating risk. Many taxpayers remain concerned about the potential for controversy, and the importance of understanding methods for preventing and resolving disputes is ever-more crucial. Join the online event to deep-dive into these topics and many more.

 

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL FORUM?

Virtual platform

Through the use of a specially designed events platform, all content, presentations, panel discussions and participation in breakout sessions and networking groups, can be viewed live from a desktop computer or mobile device. You can also view all sessions on demand at a time that suits you.

Valuable networking through AI matchmaking

Our event platform will suggest the best connections for you to meet with based on your profile interests that you input and through AI powered matchmaking. Growing your network with the right people has never been more efficient.
