Transfer Pricing

Transactions between affiliated companies should be at arm’s length, as if they were transactions between third parties. However, this is often not the case.

Particularly in cross-border transactions within multinationals, prices are mostly not at arm’s length. If the tax authorities discover this, they will adjust the agreed-upon prices to arm’s length prices. In practice, however, this appears to be quite complex. To solve this issue, many countries have implemented Transfer Pricing Rules.
