Transfer Pricing

Distance Learning Course on Business Restructuring and Valuation, Transfer Pricing Legislation and Guidelines, and other hot Transfer Pricing topics such as BEPS

How to deal with international Transfer Pricing risk?

The global Transfer Pricing landscape is fraught with uncertainty and complexity. Transfer Pricing has drawn the attention of tax authorities and taxpayers worldwide. New rules, documentation requirements and different interpretation given to the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines by both tax authorities and multinationals have created ground for many disputes.

A significant Transfer Pricing issue facing multinational enterprises (MNEs) is Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS). On October 5, 2015, the OECD released the final BEPS reports to address perceived gaps in the international tax and transfer pricing rules in order to eliminate so-called ''double non-taxation'' as well as no or low taxation, associated with practices that are perceived to segregate taxable income from the activities that generate them. The existing OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines (TPG) are changing and policies that previously were compliant may need to be reviewed and in some cases, changes to the pricing made. It is now time for multinational enterprises to determine what practical implications they face and how they can best operate within this radically changed regulatory environment.
