Within the tax specialism IMF Academy publishes two interesting distance learning courses; Transfer Pricing and Transfer Pricing & Intangibles, an online study trainer to become a Transfer Pricing Professional and a 5-day classroom training to become an international BEPS expert.

In the Transfer Pricing & Intangibles course your instructors will look at intangibles from the complementary perspectives of Transfer Pricing and valuation.
