Tax authorities in particular scrutinise intercompany service and royalty payments. A main reason for this is that it is often difficult to accurately estimate the “arm’s length nature” of these transactions. In addition, tax authorities are particularly concerned with these transactions as the payment of such fees are typically considered to be eroding the tax base in their jurisdiction.
With globalisation, these transactions are on the rise, which raises a dichotomy of views between the taxpayer and the tax authority. Hence, rightly structuring and managing transfer pricing exposures that arise from intercompany service, financing and royalty transactions is a key challenge for the regional finance team to address.
This workshop is designed specifically to give Finance and Tax Professionals a practical understanding of how to handle the transfer pricing aspects of cross-border intercompany services, financing and royalty transactions. Furthermore, given that any related party transaction needs to be evaluated from a payer and payee perspective, this programme will also cover the transfer pricing treatment of cross-border intercompany services and royalties in selected countries such as China, Indonesia, India and Malaysia.
At the end of this workshop, you will:
