We are a team of experienced international economists, MBA’s, tax lawyers and accountants, here to help your company with all your transfer pricing needs and related international tax issues. We are highly specialized in our field, and can offer you efficient, top quality, extremely price-competitive services, while guaranteeing personalized, on-the-spot attention.

We are large enough to have a physical presence in all major markets (and indeed we serve clients all over the world), but we are small enough to offer you tailor-made advice and products, focused on what your company needs.  Our fees are extremely competitive; we focus on our specialization and this way avoid the squandering of time, resources and money that characterizes the large scale structure of our competitors, of the Big Four consulting firms.




The global and increasingly complex nature of today’s marketplace demands a sophisticated approach to all aspects of international taxation. More governments are adopting cross border pricing legislations and enforce them stringently, making transfer pricing a major tax compliance issue for any multi-national company. The members of BaseFirma’s staff are strategically located in Miami, Asheville, Amsterdam, Madrid, Caracas, Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Quito, Lima, Mexico City, Santiago, and Panama City.  We will provide your company with direct, personal contact and a deep understanding of transfer pricing rules and applicable legislations in the US, Europe, Latin American and the Asian pacific region.


BaseFirma can offer your company the following services:

Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS)

With the implementation of BEPS Actions in the near future, it is important that you have a clear understanding of how your company’s tax structures will be affected. To be properly prepared and to ensure compliance with changing documentation requirements, don’t wait to contact BaseFirma for made to measure, up to date advise.


At BaseFirma, we strongly feel that a proactive approach on behalf on our clients creates the strongest position for them with the lowest risk profile, and we like to anticipate our clients’ needs in the light of the most up-to-date developments with the production of a Pre-BEPS Analysis. These are a few of the elements in your company’s tax structure that may need re-evaluation under our Pre-BEPS Analysis:


  • holding, royalty and finance structures that lack economic substance and are set up for treaty shopping purposes which may be impacted by the recommended introduction of Limitation on Benefits provision (LoB) and/or the Principle Purpose Test in tax treaties;
  • hybrid mismatch arrangements and thinly capitalized entities;
  • transfer pricing structures and the allocation of taxable profits which need to be aligned with economic activities and value creation in the respective countries; and
  • aggressive transfer pricing structures that will have to be disclosed and properly documented and filed to give tax authorities more transparent information.
