William Byrnes’ 4th Edition Practical Guide to U.S. Transfer Pricing Treatise Published December 19, 2019

Posted by William Byrnes on December 19, 2019

William Byrnes’ 4th Edition of his industry-leading Practical Guide to U.S. Transfer Pricing treatise was published December 19, 2019 by Matthew Bender LexisNexis.  William Byrnes is the author or co-author of nine Lexis titles and an advisory board member of Law360’s International Tax journal.

William Byrnes’ completely revised 4th Edition Practical Guide to U.S. Transfer Pricing (2020) has been expanded to 2,000 pages of analyses and practice notes, 47 chapters divided over six parts: Part I: U.S. regulatory analysis, application of transfer pricing methods, and jurisprudence; Part II: OECD; Part III: United Nations; Part IV: European Union; Part V: Industry topics; and Part VI: Country practice and tax risk management. Professor Byrnes brings together 50 of the industry’s eminent transfer pricing counsel, economists, and financial accountants to provide a comprehensive two-volume “go-to” resource for tax risk management.

William Byrnes explained, “I am fortunate to be able to call upon and work with the industry’s leading transfer pricing professionals from firms such as Alston, Covington, Pillsbury, Jones Day, McDermott, Duff & Phelps, Miller Chevalier, PwC, KPMG, and multinational companies like Vertex and Veritas.” Sixty contributors add subject matter expertise on technical issues faced by tax and risk management counsel.

“Transfer Pricing is one of the most complex and changing areas of tax risk in the United States and globally,” continued Byrnes. “The big-ticket cases, ones with over a half-billion-dollar adjustment, are almost always transfer pricing.  And with the renewed government focus on this topic around the world, transfer pricing audits will both increase in number and in actions taken, not just for the IRS, but most countries’ revenue authorities. U.S. companies are often the target.”

Byrnes shared, “Dr. Lorraine Eden (Texas A&M) and I will be using the treatise to teach transfer pricing online from January 13 through April 20 as part of the Texas A&M international tax curriculum”.
