I’ve spent the last 24 years helping multinational companies address their transfer pricing issues and was the first economist hired by any accounting firm in Canada to practice transfer pricing exclusively.
As the Joint Head of Global Transfer Pricing for Grant Thornton in Canada, I help my clients plan, implement, document and defend their transfer pricing policies. More specifically, I take time to understand my clients’ business models and work with them to develop tax-efficient supply chains and get their related party transactions recorded into their books and records. I then prepare contemporaneous transfer pricing documentation to support my client’s efforts to use arm’s length transfer prices.
I’ve successfully defended transfer pricing polices under audit, at appeals and at competent authority; negotiated and coordinated advance pricing arrangements (APAs); and provided litigation support and expert witness reports and testimony on transfer pricing matters.
My work has taken me across the world—including Canada, the United States, England, Ireland, Mexico, Brazil, Netherlands, Spain, Austria, Luxembourg, France, and Germany. I’ve also worked for companies in virtually every industry—including aerospace, mining, metals and minerals, transportation, heavy manufacturing, steel, utilities, automotive, chemical, pharmaceutical, electronic, financial services, wholesale trade and consumer goods. I have extensive experience with Japanese trading companies and businesses operating in the digital economy.
