In their new article published in the International Tax Review, NERA Economic Consulting Managing Director Dr. Yves Hervé, Director Philip de Homont, and Consultant Dr. Salem Saljanin discuss the transfer pricing challenges that multinational automotive suppliers increasingly face and present innovative solutions in a post-BEPS environment.
