Location Specific Advantages: Will China Tighten its Transfer Pricing Regulations?
20 June, 2:00 – 3:00 PM HKT (GMT +8)
Host: Eunice Kuo
Presenters: Victor Li, Wei Shu, and Bill Ye
In the recently released UN Transfer Pricing Manual, China has given its view on location specific advantages (LSA). Although the discussions on LSAs have been around for a while in China, the topic seems more serious now. We'll discuss:
- What is included in the LSAs including location savings and market premiums.
- Why LSAs are likely to be a disputed topic internationally while China State Administration of Tax (SAT) believes that China may be entitled to additional profit sharing from the global value chain.
- China SAT's view on LSAs including its use of LSAs to conclude bilateral advance pricing arrangements and mutual agreement procedures.
- Possible ways, such as the item-by-item calculation or residual profit approach, to estimate value brought by LSAs.
Explore the implications of the new UN guidance around LSAs and how companies operating in China may need to address them.
