2023 Ethics Speaker Series

The Ethics of International Transfer Pricing

Featuring J. Christian Plesner Rossing, Ph.D.
International Transfer Pricing Scholar, Director and Chair of UT's Accounting Department, Associate Professor of Accounting 

International transfer pricing involves the pricing of goods and services between affiliated parties in multinational organizations. Multinationals are currently under increased scrutiny from various stakeholders, including tax policymakers arguing that these organizations are not paying their fair share of taxes in the jurisdictions where they operate.

J. Christian Plesner Rossing, Ph.D., will share insights from his research and offer perspectives on the ethical dilemmas that accounting and tax managers in multinational organizations are facing in the context of international transfer pricing. This will include examples from Starbucks and FIJI Water.

Rossing joined The University of Tampa in 2018. He teaches courses in introductory, intermediate and advanced financial accounting. His research focuses on international transfer pricing, tax risk management and tax automation in multinational organizations. This includes how multinational organizations are responding to the increased pressures from stakeholders to comply with transfer pricing tax regulation, and the ethical complexities facing multinationals in that process.

Prior to joining UT, Rossing worked as an assistant/associate professor in the Department of Accounting at the Copenhagen Business School.

Please join Rossing and the Center for Ethics for an insightful discussion about international transfer pricing from an ethical standpoint! Refreshments are provided.
