  • Identifies the controls that act on commercial or financial transactions carried out between parties based in different countries
  • It is important for the internal resource management of a corporate group

International Tax Planning

An international operation is necessarily subject to at least two different tax regulations. When it comes to Brazil and the United States, the laws, rules, and regulations of the most varied inspection bodies in both countries apply. Thus, questions about transfer pricing, profit distribution, capital gains, and consolidation of accounting reports become central to the strategy of organizations.
