M&A has been an effective means for Japanese multinational companies to quickly expand their business, and their acquisitions of U.S. companies are on the rise. Among the management concerns that Japanese companies must deal with in post-acquisition integration phase are transfer pricing issues such as re-evaluating their transfer pricing policy and transaction flows, research and development function within the group, brand strategy, and management function. Strategic management of intangible property can help companies capture the most synergies from the M&A transaction and manage their transfer pricing risk.

  • Definition of intangibles for transfer pricing purpose
  • Economic substance related to intangibles
  • Cross border M&A and the ownership of intangibles
  • Intangibles Holding Structure and Case Studies
