The ACTP forms a platform that brings together different stakeholders (academics/government/business) to conduct high-quality education and research in transfer pricing in a multi-disciplinary and collaborative manner.

Transfer pricing regulations have become increasingly important with the global economy's expansion and the rise of multinational companies. These regulations are crucial for governments to collect corporate income tax effectively and prevent tax avoidance.

In addition to transfer pricing, the allocation of international taxable revenue involves broader challenges and opportunities for research. For example, the OECD Pillar Two solution, agreed upon in 2023, aims to ensure that multinational enterprises pay a minimum level of tax globally, addressing tax avoidance and promoting equitable tax distribution among countries.

However, research and education in transfer pricing and income allocation are limited to a few academic institutions. The 'Amsterdam Center for Transfer Pricing and Income Allocation' seeks to address this educational and research gap in these vital areas.
