For many companies, structuring and implementing a cohesive operational transfer pricing (OTP) framework is critically important for tax efficient planning. When multinational companies operate in several jurisdictions, tax authorities often pay more heed to relationships with overseas subsidiaries. OTP therefore plays a major role in effectively managing financial statements and reputational risk, ensuring that organizations have their tax affairs in order.
As important as this is, it can also be a laborious process. Most businesses that deal with OTP still manage it manually or rely on time-consuming spreadsheet entry.
Virtual Trader removes the hassle from implementing an effective OTP policy by automating the entire process, from data gathering to calculation and the resulting journal entry postings. Complex transfer pricing agreements and calculations are handled seamlessly with a centralized and standardized solution, ensuring the whole process runs smoothly.
Implementing our solution takes human error out of the loop, resulting in repeatable results and improved performance each and every month. Organizations are quickly able to perform what can be a hugely complex process during the critical hours and days of a period close.
We have hundreds of tax agreements and periodic intercompany recharges. Our old spreadsheet-based approach was no longer feasible and would have prevented us from scaling. Virtual Trader solved that.
