This is up from 52 per cent in the 1997 survey.Transfer pricing investigations are also on the increase with 75% of the respondents to the survey believing an audit is either very likely or fairly likely, citing transactions involving administrative and management services as the area most likely to be audited. More than half of the multinationals surveyed have already been subjected to transfer pricing audits.
