Tipi Tips #1:
What is transfer pricing?

In our first Tipi Tips video, we explain the basic concept of transfer pricing, and relate it to an everyday example.

Transfer pricing is the setting of a price for a transaction between parties that know each other.

Imagine that you are selling apples on a market. You ask a certain price per kilo for the apples, which is the cost price plus a bit of profit for yourself. At one point your uncle visits your stand to buy some apples, and you give him a special family discount. An ordinary person would not get a discount like that. In short, you charge a different price to someone you are related to than someone to whom you are not. When dealing with two companies which are related to each other, it’s the exact same thing. Setting a price for a transaction between two related companies, or again, a transaction between parties that know each other, that is what we call transfer pricing.
