You want to know all the basics, check our guide to comparable company searches!
Comparable company searches (also called benchmarks) are a specific transfer pricing analysis, aiming at identifying a set of independent companies comparable to the tested party.
Transactional methods such as the TNMM – called CPM in the US – (almost) always require to perform a comparable company search. The comparable company search will serve as an external reference point for the net margin of the testing party (usually performing routine functions).
For traditional methods, comparable company searches are sometimes required, but less frequently.
Better and faster processes thanks to our algorithms trained to help the realization of comparable company searches. As a result, we propose benchmarks that meet the highest industry standards while reducing costs.
We also provide detailed documentation on our search processes and comparable selection, including screenshots for all accepted and rejected companies.
Our comparable company searches are performed in France by our transfer pricing experts.
If the functional profile of the tested party is simple or has already been determined, the functional analysis will be limited. Otherwise the functional analysis will be performed by one of our experts.
In certain geographies, it is necessary to perform adjustments to comply with local tax authorities’ guidelines.
In other cases, adjustments are optional. They however improve the precision and relevance of the economic analyses. Adjusting for the change in market conditions due to the Covid-19 crisis is one of the examples. Do not hesitate to visit the dedicated section of our website.
We are using databases most commonly used by tax authorities such as Bureau Van Dijk databases (Orbis, Amadeus, etc.) in Europe, or SEC data in the US.
