PwC Transfer Pricing has for many years been the market leader in Norway in consultancy and dispute resolution. PwC is the only Norwegian tax practice with dedicated transfer pricing professionals in more than one office location. Eivind Falck-Ytter is the head of our national transfer pricing practice. Another key individual is Morten Beck, who is certainly the most experienced and recognized transfer pricing specialist in Norway. The transfer pricing group consists of highly skilled lawyers and economists. We assist our clients with the development of tax efficient structures that comply with Norwegian legislation, court practice, OECD guidelines and the BEPS Action Points, as well as rapid audit response.
We operate closely with our global network consisting of more than 100 partners and 3,100 dedicated transfer pricing professionals based in over 90 countries. Our combined experience across our member firms enables us to develop innovative approaches for an expansive list of clients, from high growth entrepreneurs to established market leaders, in a wide range of industries. With our experience, network and close collaboration with PwC Deals (financial transaction services department) we are able to provide assistance to clients which are beyond ordinary law practice services, and we have a stronger track record than other audit firms. We have further negotiated a number of APAs.
We provide advice to and defence for clients where tax law and financial services are combined and we experience that the collaboration is stronger and more frequent in PwC than other firms. Because of both our experience and collaboration with PwC Deals we are able to provide out of the box transfer pricing advisory to clients, which in several occasions have proven to be decisive in cases against the tax authorities.
