As the global economy expands into every corner of the world, fiscal authorities are seeking more effective ways to protect their tax bases. Closer controls over transfer pricing—the charges incurred in an intracompany transfer from one division to another—has become an increasingly frequent part of their strategy and many have intensified their scrutiny of transfer pricing issues to claim their share of tax revenues. (A similar landscape exists for U.S. companies with state-to-state operations.)
In light of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) initiative, taxpayers—now more than ever—need to have an appropriate and effective transfer pricing policy, the ability to comply with documentation and country-by-country reporting requirements, and a strategy for responding to related inquiries, which can be extremely time-consuming and can lead to tax adjustments, penalties, interest charges, and even negative publicity.
