Upcoming event: Transfer pricing disputes and recent cases – IBFD Webinar

Transfer pricing disputes have consistently been the most pressing issues for multinational groups in the post-BEPS era, as countries look to gain a “fairer” share of global profits by challenging their intragroup pricing arrangements. At the same time, the updated OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and Tax Administrations have provided countries with more tools that can be applied to ensure intra-group transfer pricing arrangements conform with the arm’s length principle. How are these concerns and developments reflected in recent transfer pricing cases? What can we learn from these cases that would help better understand the transfer pricing risks and how to manage them?

Topics Covered

Block 1: Post-BEPS transfer pricing landscape

  • Post-BEPS OECD Guidelines and remuneration spectrum 

Block 2: Transfer pricing cases

  • Non-recognition and “Delineation” of intra-group transactions 
  • Transfer pricing methods
  • Business restructuring transactions

Block 3: Practical impact of recent transfer pricing cases

  • Concluding remarks on the impact of recent transfer pricing cases
