The recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in the GlaxoSmithKline case, the Court's first pronouncement on Canada's transfer pricing rules, together with the recent decision of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal in the Jockey Canada case, underscore the importance of accurate and complete contemporaneous documentation in related party transactions and the perils of an uncoordinated approach to tax and customs transfer pricing. Transfer pricing is a key area of enforcement focus by both Canadian and foreign tax and customs authorities. Our panel of experts will discuss the implications of the Glaxo and Jockey Canada cases on transfer pricing best practices, provide practical tips for co-ordination of tax and customs transfer pricing, and discuss the current enforcement environment and options for businesses on dispute resolution and voluntary disclosures.
