Transfer Pricing Management Tool

The Core Modules of the Transfer Pricing Management Tool

 
 
 

Flow Analyzer

The Flow Analyzer is a custom built high-performance business intelligence solution which is optimized for operational transfer pricing purposes. Compared to traditional relational databases (SQL) or multidimensional cubes (OLAP), the Flow Analyzer uses an internally developed in-memory graph database

Highlights

  • Integration of SAP- and non-SAP data

  • Comprehensive visualization of value flows

  • Interactive and flexible analysis of transactions at the speed of thought

  • Real-time change from “bird’s eye view” to complete transactional details

  • Consolidated margins

  • Plant, product, customer profitability

  • VAT compliance checks

 

Segmented P&L

Segmented reporting involves breaking down a company into its tax relevant segments and allocating its financial information to each segment. These segments are influenced by management decisions, external reporting rules, internal reporting standards and different tax jurisdictions

Highlights

  • Flexible and fully customizable segmentation of P&L’s

  • Dynamic allocation of SG&A’s / OPEX costs

  • Multidimensional segmentation (cluster/transactions)

  • Direct and indirect allocation of overheads

  • Automated overhead forecast

  • Manual postings (e.g. corrections, year-end adjustments)

 

Push Workbench

The Workbench Module calculates the transfer prices automatically on product level. For each defined segment it calculates new transfer prices based on the legal requirements such as target net margins, custom rules (external rules), customized parameters or thresholds (internal rules). Same as with the P&L Segmentation, the Workbench comes along with comprehensive forecasting support.  The forecasts can be either automatically generated by the module (based on best practice controlling methods) or manually entered by the end users

Highlights

  • Fully automated calculation of TP’s and real-time impact simulation on product level

  • Comprehensive automated consideration of compliance requirements (target net margins, customs rules, VAT, etc.) along the complete value chain

  • Manual, custom or fully automated forecasting capabilities on product and/or transaction level

  • Automatic download, validation of transfer prices including audit proof upload into SAP

  • Price setting strategies (target Ebit, target mark-ups, raw materials, intermediates, etc.)

Pull Negotiation

The Pull Negotiation module offers flexibility in cases where the automated transfer price calculation is either not possible, not permitted or not wanted. Typical examples are the price determination for new products, new trade relations, special transportation modes, slow movers, dead stocks, key raw materials, etc.

Highlights

  • Integrated and fully documented negotiation workflow
  • Negotiation and case-by-case transfer price management in special cases such as negotiation of transfer prices for new products, slow movers, critical raw materials, strategic trading goods, transfer prices in changed business models, difficult regulatory environment, etc.
  • Improved alignment of operational transfer pricing needs with operational business requirements
  • Order-to-cash friendly process through automated, validated and audit-proof upload of transfer prices directly into SAP

Price List

The Price List provides the user with a customizable and interactive real-time updated transfer price list. Existing conditions in SAP can be conveniently compared and changed with the Price List through the bi-directional SAP interface

Highlights

  • Global overview of all maintained and valid transfer prices on product and trade relation level

  • Direct interface to ERP system for price maintenance and price download (price validation)

  • Different export templates for further processing (e.g. maintenance of purchase info records or standard price adjustments)

  • Automatic creation of new and additional conditions (improves OtC process)

Tax Board

The Tax Board with all relevant key information for a fast and efficient risk assessment. The user can directly jump from the tax board to the other modules. All information can be exported into TP documentation and presentations

Highlights

  • Dashboard with all relevant key information for a fast and efficient risk assessment
  • User can directly jump from the tax board to the other modules –> automatic deep dive
  • Information can be exported into TP documentation and presentations
  • Simulation of global tax rates (impact of transfer price management)

Proof of Concept

Visibility

Real-time visibility is important in making timely informed decisions. When information can be accessed instantly, without wasting resources on permanent data extraction, validation and processing, the project team is better informed and can make more accurate and faster decisions.

Hands-on

A proof of concept is more elaborate than a standard software demo or sales presentation because it familiarizes the client with the complete range of the solution’s capabilities and provides hands-on experience to managers, IT personnel, and users. The proof of concept will support the project team with its ability to perform real-time validations, analytics and simulations.

Quality

Evaluate the quality and reliability of Optravis services and experience.

In addition to using the TP Management Tool in the project environment, the proof of concept enables the client to experience the Optravis services.

Business case

Justify the software solution to upper management

As company budgets tighten, it has become more difficult to justify enterprise software purchases and get upper management to sign off on them. A proof of concept gives Optravis the opportunity to demonstrate the product’s benefits including its return on investment (ROI) to upper management.
