Tax Valuation

Our specialists have extensive experience working with the Dutch tax authorities to resolve valuation-related disputes. You can also benefit from our global network. Should the need arise, we have tax valuation professionals in over 50 countries who are familiar with the local tax valuation regulations.

Tax Regulations

Historically, tax regulations have never been prescriptive regarding valuations. Taxpayers could rely on tax valuation studies prepared for other purposes such as external financial reporting. However, this is no longer the case:

  • The OECD has introduced tax valuation techniques in Chapter VI of its Transfer Pricing Guidelines.
  • The Dutch TP decree from 2018 addresses some specific considerations in the context of a tax valuation.
  • Tax authorities in many jurisdictions have enhanced their expertise and developed specific tax valuation teams for audits.
  • In summary, there is now a separate domain of tax valuation knowledge. This knowledge domain can be seen as distinct from valuations prepared for financial reporting or general corporate purposes.

Tax Valuation

  • Legal entity valuations/valuations of shares.
  • Exit charges/transfers of business opportunity.
  • Tax valuation of intangible assets:

How we can help with Tax Valuation?

Our tax valuation professionals work closely with our core transfer pricing team. This team provides additional synergies when the tax valuation involves a multinational entity with financial results that are impacted by transfer pricing policies. Tax valuations may receive intense scrutiny from the relevant tax authorities and have important financial implications. It is imperative for the company and the tax valuation analyst to understand the tax-specific nuances when developing a defensible position. Our tax valuation professionals have extensive consulting and industry experience in performing tax valuations.
