Isabel Verlinden is a Brussels-based International Tax Partner heading up PwC's Global Transfer Pricing practice with over 3,000 full time Transfer Pricing experts. In that capacity, she is a Member of PwC's Global Tax Leadership team. She gathered first-hand knowledge of the TP challenges faced by companies operating across the globe based on over twenty-five years of experience working for PwC (and its legacy Firms) in Brussels and Washington, DC. For many years, Isabel has helped navigate leading global companies in a vast array of industries through the pitfalls stemming from cross-border transacting in which domestic rules may lack coherence and consistency not to mention lack of adaptation to the rapid evolving world marked by technological advancement. This is typically an area wherein direct tax and the growing attention to indirect taxes come together in the analysis. Her work is often accompanied by ensuring upfront certainty through Advance Pricing Agreements. In the absence of upfront assurance, seeking effective means to alleviate double taxation is part of her day-to-day practice as well. She represents PwC vis-à-vis the OECD in all Transfer Pricing related matters. She is also PwC's representative at the European Commission's Joint Transfer Pricing Forum. She is an active writer for international tax and business periodicals. She has (co-)authored over 100 articles and books to date. She is often solicited by academia and event organizers to talk about transfer pricing. Isabel has a degree in Applied Economics (University of Louvain, Belgium) – Major International Business Affairs, a Degree in Financial Economics (Brussels University, Belgium) – Major in Accountancy and a Degree in commercial and Financial Sciences (Brussels University, Belgium) – Major in Fiscal Sciences.
