Project Results and Achievements

Mr. Kurokawa has successfully defended many clients in the area of transfer pricing disputes, advance pricing agreements (APA), and competent authority negotiations. He also helps clients with transfer pricing planning including Japanese multinationals’ foreign investments, M&As and business withdrawals.

Other Activities

Given his global practical experience, Mr. Kurokawa has spoken at various transfer pricing seminars as well as lectures for tax officials. He has also authored articles on transfer pricing issues for various publications such as “Kokusaizeimu”, “Sozei-kenkyu”, “Zeimu kouhou”, “Keiri Jyouhou” and “Nikkei Business”.

Professional Vision

As Japanese multinationals increasingly globalize, they must ensure the optimum distribution of management resources including “manpower”, “goods”, “capital” and “information”. This leads to a vast number of global tax issues which affect their decision making. Under such circumstances, through the PwC global network, Mr. Kurokawa focuses on providing effective tax solutions that support his clients’ business development and achieve neutrality in resource allocations.
