Transfer Pricing Project - Supported by Lingnan University Innovation and Impact Fund (sponsored by the UGC Knowledge Transfer Fund)


Project objectives

This transfer pricing project aims to refocus the Department’s research findings and professional expertise to help accounting professionals (and business practitioners) enhance their understanding of issues relevant to transfer pricing, assist them in coping with the transfer pricing rules, and provide relevant information for companies to (re-)design appropriate transfer pricing policies adopted along corporate supply chains.
It is expected that the project will increase the industry’s understanding of the importance of transfer pricing policies and enrich their knowledge (and application, if possible) of transfer pricing rules and compliance.
