Principles of Transfer Pricing

Overview and learning objectives
On 5 October 2015, the OECD published its reports addressing base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS). This new guidance can be considered a game changer and is expected to alter the transfer pricing outcomes in many situations. This requires a different approach from both tax authorities and multinational enterprises, because a significantly more granular risk and functional analysis should be performed. Companies as well as tax authorities need to have a better understanding of how value is created with respect to for example the development and exploitation of their intangibles. A further point of focus is the way in which companies and tax authorities should deal with the three-tiered OECD approach related to transfer pricing documentation. 
This course consists of theoretical sessions which are complemented by case studies and examples. After this, you will understand where to find comparables, understand the different comparability factors, be able to use databases and know which type of filters you need to apply. Also, you will be able to determine which comparability adjustments can be made. In addition, you will understand how to determine an arm’s length price for various intra-group transactions and you will know the different elements of a CbC report, Master File and Local File. 

This course serves as good preparation for the CIOT’s ADIT Paper 3.03. For more information about the Advanced Diploma in International Taxation, you can visit the CIOT’s website.

This is an interactive course with a maximum of 40 participants. Participants will have access to relevant online collections on the IBFD Tax Research Platform for a period of two weeks.
