    QG Academy Webinars

    As part of the Quantera Global’s 10th anniversary celebrations, we are delighted to announce that on 30 November we will host a webinar on intercompany financial transactions from a global perspective.

    Transfer Pricing attention towards financial transactions has taken off in recent years and has further increased following the release of the OECD Guidance on this topic in February 2020. Attention to and expertise on this topic has grown among tax authorities leading, amongst other things, to more tax audits related to financial transactions. 

    Our business partners in Brazil, India, the Netherlands, and the United States will guide you through the most significant developments in this field within their respective region. 

    We have also scheduled the following webinars: 

    • 14 December on Scandinavia
