Australia: Leading transfer pricing advisor bolsters Moore Stephens Global Transfer Pricing Practice
Last Updated: 7 October 2011

We are proud to announce that Moore Stephens has bolstered its Melbourne global transfer pricing practice with the appointment of Stuart Edwards as Associate Director, transfer pricing. The appointment, effective from September 1, 2011, adds further depth to our transfer pricing team.

"Transfer pricing is an area of significant growth for Moore Stephens, as transfer pricing has been and remains a constant battleground between business, the Taxation Office and professional tax advisors. Our clients are increasingly seeking value-added counsel from us and Stuart, a recognized leading advisor in the transfer pricing space, is a welcome addition to our client centric culture" said Moore Stephens Managing Partner, Marco Carlei.

Stuart, a former partner with PwC where he lead their transfer pricing practice for many years, has spent nearly two decades as a senior transfer pricing specialist working with clients to guide them through this complex area of tax law with a focus upon achieving positive commercial outcomes.

With the global economic uncertainties continuing, companies with cross-border trade flows often comment that the 'risk' of a transfer pricing adjustment is a key concern of management and the board. The ATO proposed new 'Reportable Tax Position' schedule, initially a requirement of select larger business and perceived higher risk taxpayers, will add a further dimension to the management of transfer pricing risk.

With his depth of experience, Stuart will be a positive addition to the Moore Stephens client service teams. He will focus upon transfer pricing policy formulation, documentation and implementation, risk assessment and management, dispute resolution, expert witness engagements and the proactive and cooperative engagement with Revenue authorities in consummating Advance Pricing Arrangements (APAs). Stuart commented that in his experience: "APAs, which deal with the pricing of future related party dealings, are not only a strategic consideration as a means of addressing transfer pricing risk they should be evaluated by taxpayers with material related party transactions and/or those that are contemplating changes in their structure and supply chain which impact upon their related party dealings and profitability."

Stuart will also be presenting at our transfer pricing seminar on 12 October 2011
