- Changes in tax authority approach, regulator perspectives, and the audit environment in key jurisdictions.
- Trade-offs companies may face when balancing commercial, regulatory, foreign exchange, and tax considerations.
- Strategies that companies have used to support and defend intra-company service charges.
- Practical lessons learned from recent audits.
