2011 trends: We see a number of trends that will be very important for people responsible for tax and transfer pricing. After the recent financial crisis, governments are short of cash and they will try to increase their tax revenue. We will see more cooperation between governments sharing tax information, attacking aggressive tax planning, enforcing existing tax obligations and requiring new disclosures. Other stakeholders like NGOs, consumers and employees will increase the pressure on multinationals to meet their expectations. The different parties wanting to split the tax pie are becoming more assertive and this could lead to more transfer pricing litigation worldwide. We see mergers and acquisitions increasing again, this time with the BRIC countries as the acquirers, and European multinationals and their tax and transfer pricing departments will need to get ready for that.
