Reputational Risk


In all the publicized cases where the tax strategies of multinational companies have been called into question, transfer pricing is usually presented as the main culprit. The allegations are typically that these multinational companies have shifted profits (using transfer mispricing) from the countries where the business revenues are generated(and therefore avoided tax) to other countries where they will pay little or no tax.There are other risks which a business can influence. One of these is reputational risk. Reputational risk is the risk that a business will lose revenue or incur significant costs as a result of damages to its public image.
