Advisory firm Charles River Associates (CRAI) has welcomed David Kemp as a vice president in the transfer pricing practice based in Toronto, and transfer pricing leader for Canada.

Kemp brings more than 25 years of financial and tax consulting expertise, with deep experience in global transfer pricing – which refers to the rules and methods for pricing transactions within and between enterprises under common ownership or control.

Kemp has advised numerous multinationals in a range of industries on transfer pricing planning, documentation, and dispute resolution matters. He has also defended transfer pricing policies under audit by Canadian and foreign taxation authorities.

He previously spent more than seven years at Baker Tilly Canada (formerly Collins Barrow) where he was a partner and national leader of the global transfer pricing & dispute resolution practice in Canada. Prior to that he spent nearly four years at BDO Canada, where he held the same position. Kemp also spent three-and-half years as the leader of the global transfer pricing & dispute resolution practice for Duff & Phelps, based out of the Toronto office.

Earlier in his career, he was a senior manager in global transfer pricing at KPMG Canada, and before that was an accountant at Collins Barrow. Kemp has a bachelor of commerce from Ryerson and is a chartered professional accountant.

Kemp is recognized as one of the leading transfer pricing consultants in the world, with International Tax Review World Transfer Pricing rating him as “highly regarded” in the categories of transfer pricing advisors and tax controversy advisors.

“I’m thrilled that David will help lead the Practice,” said Rebel Curd, global transfer pricing practice leader. “He will strengthen our team’s global footprint and how we advise clients on their most challenging transfer pricing cases.”

Last fall, the Boston-headquartered firm added Aniket Bhardwaj as a vice president in its forensic services practice in Toronto.
