and profit indicators. Transfer pricing consulting & training.

  • About RoyaltyStat

    RoyaltyStat is a premier database of royalty rates and license agreements. In addition, we provide global company financials and annual reports to find comparables and safe harbors. We provide data and applicable tools to determine

    arm's length royalty rates and profit indicators specified in the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines and United Nations Practical Manual on Transfer Pricing for Developing Countries.

  • License Agreements

    License agreements are "material contracts" sourced from the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) and Canada's SEDAR archives. Every license agreement in RoyaltyStat contains a disclosed royalty rate. We report the highest among tiered royalty rates.

    After two years of development, we launched our proprietary royalty rates cum license agreements database online on February 2, 2000. Today, RoyaltyStat provides several regularly updated databases to support transfer pricing planning and compliance.

  • global company financials

    RoyaltyStat's online database of publicly-traded global company financials is designed to find comparables and determine arm's length profit indicators specified in the OECD Transfer Pricing

    Guidelines. The global company financials are standardized and licensed from Standard & Poor's Capital IQ Compustat.

  • global annual reports

    RoyaltyStat's online database of global company Annual Reports is designed to facilitate comparability analysis under the OECD Guidelines. Annual reports are necessary to establish comparability of accounting standards and

    functions performed because they contain detailed company descriptions, disclosure of business segments, accounting notes, and thus help make comparability analysis more defensible to audit challenges.

  • UNIDO Industrial Statistics

The data are arranged by the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC) Revision 3 pertaining to 151 manufacturing sectors.

    Employment, Wages and salaries, Output, Value added, and Gross investment. The industry data can be searched by Country, Industry (ISIC), and Year.
