Market entry strategies

  • When you decide to enter a foreign market, there are a variety of options open to you. These options vary with cost, risk and the degree of control that can be exercised over them. The simplest form of entry strategy is exporting. More complex forms include truly global operations, which may involve joint ventures for the purpose of setting up a legally dependent foreign branch or establishing a legally independent company.
  • The form of your engagement abroad not only has economic consequences, it also influences your tax situation.
  • We can advise you on the various options open to you when starting or expanding your market presence.

Transfer pricing

  • If your company has an affiliated company or a permanent establishment outside its home country, there may be cross-border transfers of goods or services. The tax authority is entitled to examine whether the transfer prices are common on the market. This is due to the fact that there is a theoretical possibility to shift taxable income to a country with a low tax level.
  • We recommend preparing transfer pricing documentation in good time in order to avoid financial disadvantages.
