2013 International Tax Conference Speaker Profile: James M. Hill

2013 CalCPA International Tax Conference

You should attend the 2013 International Tax Conference on December 6, 2013 in San Francisco.

Speaker Profile: James M. Hill

Jim Hill is one of our speakers this year. He is an attorney and CPA at Grant Thornton LLP in Los Angeles. He will be talking about transfer pricing from the perspective of middle-market companies.

Who are you, in 20 words or less

I am a transfer pricing specialist, but I would really rather be skiing.

What are you talking about at the 2013 CalCPA International Tax Conference?

Intercompany transfer pricing.

Why people should attend?

Transfer pricing touches every multinational company’s operations. Governments through out the world are using transfer pricing to protect their tax bases and increase local country tax revenues, particularly middle market companies. I am going to talk about the various points that you really need to address when involved with transfer pricing for middle market companies.

I am also a good presenter and I am funny. I might not be as funny as everyone’s favorite economist, Ben Stein, but I don’t make as much money as he does, either.

What do you need to know about economists in transfer pricing?

First Law of Economists: For every economist, there exists an equal and opposite economist.

Second Law of Economists: They are both wrong!

How To Attend the International Tax Conference

I know. You are saying to yourself, “Yes, Yes! I MUST ATTEND!” No worries. You can attend in person, or you can watch the whole thing on the web.

December 6, 2013 is a Friday. Be in SF on Thursday night, December 5, 2013. We will have totally unofficial little social gathering on Thursday night at the OneUp Restaurant and Lounge at the Grand Hyatt Hotel from 7 pm – 8:30 pm. Hang out with us a while. Have a beverage. Talk shop.

If you tell your significant other about this event, he/she is likely to tag along for a weekend in San Francisco during the Christmas season. Union Square will be festive. You can spend all day Friday soaking up the international tax goodness while your S. O. is out having fun. What a deal, right?
