Transfer Pricing Solutions founder Shannon Smit spent 11 years working with a Big 4 in Melbourne, Amsterdam, Prague and 5 years in 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. And so in early 2007 Shannon left the Big 4 to start Transfer Pricing Solutions.
Shannon has specialized in transfer pricing since 1998, working in Amsterdam, New York and Melbourne Big 4 offices. Shannon is a Chartered Accountant, Registered Tax Agent and holds her Masters in International Tax Law and has recently been appointed to the Australian Governments Board of Taxation Working Group as an expert panel member for the Review of Tax Impediments Facing Small Business.
