Debt Transfer Pricing
Multinationals have increasing need to comply with Debt Transfer Pricing regulations across many tax jurisdictions. Defensible transfer pricing structures require issuers to retain outside experts to issue independent opinions re the stand-alone credit profile of their borrowing subsidiary and that entity’s ability to access the debt market for a given amount, at a given price, at a given time.
GCA’s credit ratings and capital markets expertise enables delivery of credible, thoroughly documented third party opinions supporting the arm’s length treatment of inter-company debt structures and associated interest expense. GCA has priced over US$ 8 billion worth of inter-company debt on behalf of clients representing a broad cross-section of multinational FTSE 100 issuers.
