Highlights

•We study country and firm characteristics for international transfer pricing comparables.

•Country-risk explains the operational profitability of a company better than its geographic region.

•This supports expanding the current regional scope of comparables searches to a global level, provided that country risk is controlled for.

•In the absence of proper country risk adjustments, developing countries may receive too little tax revenues when using traditional comparables.
