Transfer pricing
BaseFirma

BaseFirma is part of an international group with offices in Amsterdam, Ashville, Bogota, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Lima, Madrid, Mexico City, Miami, Panama City and Santiago. The firm's transfer pricing practice is comprised of two partners, among these practice lead Jesús Pérez.

The team in Venezuela assists multinational companies in dealing with complex local transfer pricing rules across a range of industries. It has also designed and developed a transfer pricing model for a client in the chemicals industry, as well as provided a transfer pricing audit defence for a client in the consumer products sector.

The team’s recent experience in transfer pricing matters is exhibited in its representation of Scania de Venezuela in the design and development of a transfer pricing model and segmentation of financial information to verify the arm’s length compliance of its transactions, considering the client has no access to foreign currency. 

The team recently welcomed Carlos Subero as country manager and Mauricio Montilva as a senior associate.
