Question: Many companies transfer inventories from one affiliate to another Often

Many companies transfer inventories from one affiliate to another. Often the companies have integrated operations in which one affiliate provides the raw materials, another manufactures finished products, another distributes the products, and perhaps another sells the products at retail. In other cases, various affiliates may be established for selling the company’s products in different geographic locations, especially in different countries. Often tax considerations also have an effect on intercompany transfers.
