Transfer Pricing

    High Quality International Transfer Pricing Advisory to navigate a complex landscape

    Transfer Pricing is a primary component of the international tax framework which holds across nations in today’s hyper globalized world of business. With the OECD’s BEPS ( Base Erosion and Profit Shifting) focused on taxing value creation, multinational groups now face increasing compliance obligations on top of their large operational volumes and transactions. The challenges are compounded because of the continuously evolving global regulatory landscape and greater country-level compliances. Transfer Pricing lies at the heart of these dynamics.

    International transactions – in the form of sales of goods and services, financial transactions, or exchange of other intangibles – between entities of a multinational enterprises (MNE) group based and operating in different countries is common in today’s world. Transfer Pricing is the internal price charged for these transactions by one member of an MNE group to another member in a different country. Such transactions necessitate increasing numbers of regulatory compliances across jurisdictions. Since these jurisdictions are well connected with swift and regular information sharing about related party transactions (RPTs) across international borders via such mechanisms as Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) and Country-by-Country Reporting (CbCR), compliance is also being enforced more strictly. Being complex and time consuming , these multi-jurisdiction compliance processes can stretch company resources away from their core business.
    Transfer pricing (TP) is an ongoing and critical task for MNE groups calling for their full attention and demanding strong skills and competencies. MNEs must have a strong methodical process for the various requirements such as TP risk management and controls, documentation, TP study (local file), master file, TP records and processes, etc.
