Core Components

Functions and features

EXA OTP is the direct result of well-known market demands and user requirements together with tax, TP, finance, and business objectives.

Monitoring and early intervention

EXA OTP allows Operational Transfer Pricing (OTP) managers to monitor all intercompany flows and intervene early on in the year if deviations occur.

Automatically generated forecast projections help to assess expected local profits to avoid year-end adjustments. Suggested values for new product prices can be managed across borders via integrated workflows using standard SAP components. As soon as new Transfer Prices have been approved on product level, they can be pushed back to the sender’s as well as the receiver’s SAP ERP/SAP S/4HANA system automatically. At the end of a year, the entire dataset with consistent transaction matrices, segmented P&Ls, etc. can be used for TP documentation purposes in master or local files.
