2018 Executive Program in Transfer Pricing (EPTP)


Transfer Pricing continues to be a critical focus area of international taxation for ​multinational enterprises, especially, in light of the OECD/G20’s initiative on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting.

In order to meet the growing demand for education in this area, the Tax Policy Cen­­ter of the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) organizes an Executive Program in Transfer Pricing (EPTP). The aim of the program is to provide its participants with an advanced level understanding of Transfer Pricing principles and their application in practice.

The third edition of the program will begin in April 2018. The third edition incorpo­rates the most recent changes in Transfer Pricing policy, notably among others, the work of the OECD, UN & EU and the ongoing debate with respect to attribution of profits to permanent establish­ments, profit split method, financing transactions, comparability analysis and last but not least, taxing digital business models.

Key highlights of the program are:

  • It is organized on a part time basis from April 2018 to October 2018.
  • It consists of fifteen classroom training sessions (90 hours) followed by a short technical paper on a transfer pricing topic. Selected technical papers of the previ­­ous editions have been published/are in the process of being published in Interna­tional journals.
  • Its content is approached from a academic & practical perspective (consulting and an in-house perspective).
  • Its faculty consists of government officialssenior practitioners from internation­­al consulting/law firms, in house tax directors from leading multinationals, aca­­demicssenior economists and members of the tax administration.
