As with most things it is always an advantage to be up-to-date with the latest information, this is especially true in transfer pricing. So the question is how does one keep up-to-date with an ever changing playing field?
The best way is to be connected to all the well known transfer pricing sites and tax news sites. But if your work life is similar to mine there is just never enough time to visit all the different Transfer Pricing websites (except for this blog of course). Some websites offer mailing lists which are very helpful but you will have to be registered which comes at a cost. If your company sponsors these, then I would suggest to use them but there is an alternative – Google Alerts.
Google Alerts are defined as follows: ” [Google Alerts] are email updates of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your queries.”
So in other words, if you set up a google alert for transfer pricing (or any other topic that interests you) you can get daily/weekly updates in your mail (for free) which provide you with websites that have said anything about transfer pricing. I have been using these Google Alerts and can only recommend to give it a try.
Let me know how you go – and don’t forget to share your way of staying up-to-date with transfer pricing
