Abstract

This paper examines the influence of environmental and firm-specific variables on the selection of international transfer pricing strategies. The primary data were obtained from 164 multinational enterprises by means of a questionnaire. Responses were analyzed by performing factor analysis and constructing a probit model. The findings suggest that legal constraints and firm size are significant determinants in the selection of international transfer pricing strategies by U.S. multinationals.© 1990 JIBS.
