The new 4th Edition of Practical Guide to U.S. Transfer Pricing continues to be the authoritative legal treatise for tax counsel, tax authorities, the judiciary, and policy makers. The 4th Edition is fully revised with several new chapters, over 2,000 pages of analyses and practice notes, 47 chapters divided over six parts. Part I: U.S. regulatory analysis, application of transfer pricing methods, and jurisprudence; Part II: OECD; Part III: United Nations; Part IV: European Union; Part V: Industry topics; and Part VI: Country practice and tax risk management.

Professor Byrnes brings together 50 of the industry’s eminent transfer pricing counsel, economists, and financial accountants to provide a comprehensive two-volume “go-to” resource for tax risk management.

Within the first 29 chapters, the U.S. Treasury regulations and jurisprudence are analyzed from an advisory perspective, including chapters on the transfer pricing methods, documentation and examination, advance pricing agreements and mutual assistance, litigation, state issues, and customs. A chapter is dedicated to analyzing the transfer pricing aspects of each step of a U.S. business restructuring.

The next six chapters of Part II address the OECD’s approach to transfer pricing because many OECD member as well as nonmember countries refer to the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines as authoritative or persuasive. The U.S. Treasury refers to the OECD Guidelines for purposes of mutual agreement procedures between competent authorities of treaty partners. These chapters include an exemplary application of value chain analysis, digitalization’s impact on transfer pricing compliance, and hybrid rules interaction with transfer pricing.

Part III is reserved for future chapters analyzing the UN Transfer Pricing Manual and UN transfer pricing guidance for extractive industries because many subscribers have operations in developing economies. Part VI includes a chapter on the impact of EU State Aid cases on APAs. Part V includes nine industry specific chapters: two risk management chapters, five chapters for financial services topics, and two chapters providing case studies to examine the global value chain of an industry. Part VI contains two country chapters analyzing the national transfer pricing regulations and practice of Brazil and India. Parts II through Part VI will expand each year to include further analysis and case study chapters.
