So what is transfer pricing then?
TP is about supporting the arm’s length (market oriented) character of prices applied on (mainly) cross-border transactions between affiliated companies or between a company and its foreign branch. Such transactions could involve goods, intangibles, and/or services (including financial transactions).
Why is transfer pricing now such a hot issue?
International trade has risen quickly over the last decennia and cross-border trade by multinational enterprises (MNEs) accounts for much of this growth. Tax authorities – and the OECD in a larger context - are concerned that multinationals set their related party transfer prices in a way that may shift profits out of their country. This has resulted in a need to MNEs to have defendable and coherent transfer pricing (TP) policies, not only in going concern situations, but also, and more critically, at important moments in the life of a group, like reorganizations or acquisitions.
