Senior Manager Operational Transfer Pricing / Intercompany Effectiveness ( ICE )
EY’s clients are increasingly requesting advice on and support for operational transfer pricing, also known within EY as intercompany effectiveness ( ICE ).
EY’s ICE service offering focuses on the effective and efficient execution of intercompany pricing across the intercompany life cycle (price setting, transacting, monitoring / adjusting, and documenting).
The ICE service offering focuses on all elements of an operating model for transfer pricing (, processes, controls, organizational design, data, and technology).
To satisfy the increasing demand for these services, EY is seeking to hire a role within our transfer pricing team to focus on operational transfer pricing / ICE services.
The Senior Manager role involves leading a Global team of EY transfer pricing professionals that cross-team with clients’ Operations, Finance, Tax, and Business Leadership to operationalize clients’ intercompany transactions efficiently, effectively, and in compliance with regulatory and local tax laws.
While performing these operational transfer pricing functions for clients, you will leverage scalable methods to assess the root cause of issues, design and implement solutions that improve the financial information used for other business processes such as statutory reporting, tax provision, and compliance.
In the short and medium-term, the expectation is this Senior Manager role will focus on a single EY client, with the possibility of service to additional clients long-term.
