AMCHAM NEWS Introductory Training on Transfer Pricing As a follow up to KPMG Macedonia and AmCham’s 2013-14 cooperation that produced a translation of the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and Tax Administrations, members of our Legal and Tax Committee delivered a one day introductory transfer pricing training to tax inspectors. The May 15th event involved 23 inspectors from Public Revenue Office and the Ministry of Finance and featured the following speakers: • Dusko Stevcevski, EY Skopje; • Ivana Lekic, PricewaterhouseCoopers Skopje; • Aleksy Damjanov, KPMG Macedonia; and • Borce Smilevski, Deloitte Skopje. The presentations offered insights on transfer pricing facts, how to apply the “arm’s length” principle, regional approaches and perspectives, the transfer pricing methodology, examples of intra-company transactions and results from a developed comparative analysis. Event attendees actively participated in the session and highly rated their experience, pointing out that these types of trainings are crucial for them to gain new knowledge and strengthen their capacity to work in this area.  Dusko Stevcevski, E&Y Skopje  Ivana Lekic, PricewaterhouseCoopers Skopje  Borce Smilevski, Deloitte Skopje  Aleksy Damjanov, KPMG Macedonia AmCham Macedonia would like to express special thanks to our volunteer trainers!
