One-Stop Data Source

ktMINE’s team of experts have spent decades analyzing royalty rates for transfer pricing, business valuation, and expert witness services for multinational organizations and government authorities. Identifying market royalty rate comparables with relevant, usable licensing terms was costly and far too time-consuming. That is why ktMINE created a one-stop source for key licensing data, accurate searching, and unrestricted access to documents needed to efficiently create a defensible analysis.

Providing Transparency

Public intangible asset information is abundant, but scattered, and often difficult to locate. Let’s face it, not everyone has the time, resources or energy to find it, let alone organize and connect the data in meaningful ways. ktMINE’s databases remove these tedious tasks, allowing you to get right to work. From comparable market royalty rates to licensed patents, ktMINE’s databases give you access to the insight you need to make informed decisions.

Ensuring that your Transfer Pricing analysis is defensible has become increasingly difficult in the ever-evolving intellectual asset landscape. With OECD’s implementation of its BEPS initiative, practitioners have been left with the uncertainty of this new landscape. Their chief concern stems from what this means for their firms as well as how they will be able to mitigate the risks associated with the implementation of BEPS.

ktMINE’s solutions help Transfer Pricing professionals quickly screen results in order to easily find all potential comparables, providing them with evidence to help develop a defensible analysis. ktMINE’s data and tools support thorough due diligence in Transfer Pricing matters as well as support BEPS documentation. Search the same database that is used by most government tax authorities to perform their local country audits.
