Expense Allocation & Analysis (EA2) services
International Tax. Quantitative Consulting Services
Tax authorities worldwide are challenging multinational companies regarding two interrelated tax issues: allocation and apportionment of expenses to foreign source income under Internal Revenue Code §861 and the deductibility of items that should have been charged to foreign jurisdictions (charge-outs) under §482 – i.e., intercompany service transactions.
Documentation is the issue. Companies either have none to support their analysis, or what they have is outdated. Without current, accurate and supportable information, tax departments may struggle to produce reliable support and documentation.
