The Australian tax authority continues to focus on transfer pricing reviews.
An area that taxpayers and authorities may disagree upon is the correct application of TP methods often escalating into disputes, in which companies have to demonstrate why and how the specific method was adopted. Australia has stepped up on the reviewing of TP methods and documentation. As such, careful deliberation must be exercised when selecting the most suitable TP method.
Above all, the method chosen must be correctly applied to justify an arms’ length price.

SPEAKERS / PANELISTS
Transfer Pricing Solutions founder Shannon Smit spent 11 years working with a Big 4 in Melbourne, Amsterdam, Prague and New York, before returning to Melbourne in 2005. During 2005-2006 Shannon noticed the increased recruitment of in-house transfer pricing specialists to American tax teams as transfer pricing controversy increased around the world.
Shannon started to identify an opportunity as many Australian companies were also facing these increased transfer needs, but did not have a need or funding for a permanent transfer pricing team member, and other options available to them to fulfil this role were quite costly.
In early 2007 Shannon left the Big 4 firm to start Transfer Pricing Solutions.
Shannon has specialized in transfer pricing since 1998. Shannon is a Chartered Accountant, Registered Tax Agent and holds her Masters in
International Tax Law and is on the Australian Governments Board of Taxation Working Group as an expert panel member for the Review of
Tax Impediments Facing Small Business. Her position has been renewed annually for the past four years.
