Decentralized enterprises, such as multinational enterprises (MNEs), adopt transfer prices to coordinate the strategies of the operating functional divisions and marketing divisions in a multinational environment. This paper analyzes the existence of profit transfer though transfer pricing among MNEs in China, and employs quantitative analysis to evaluate the amount of profit that is transferred by this mechanism in the Chinese industry. The contradiction between MNEs' abundant advantages of operating in China and their abnormal low profit margins indicate the existence of profit transfer behavior. The quantitative analysis shows that in the industry, there is more than 300 billion yuan, one fifth of their net profit, transferred yearly outside China and causes 4.9% decline of the total net profit of the Chinese industry from 2012 to 2015.
