Transfer pricing Miscellaneous 2018

Basics of transfer pricing documentation

Source: The Tax Specialist Journal Article

Published Date: 1 Oct 2018


Transfer pricing is an important issue for multinational companies that operate in Australia. Not only has the Australian Government been a vocal advocate for change and increased transparency, it has also sought to lead by introducing significant new and aggressive changes in local tax rules, both from a corporate tax and transfer pricing/avoidance perspective and from a goods and services tax perspective. This article examines the objective of transfer pricing documentation (TPD), the history of TPD in Australia (in particular, Div 13 and Divs 815-B and 815-C), and the steps in preparing TPD. This article also looks at the analysis of global group and local entity, and related-party dealings, including market and industry overview, functional and risk analysis, transfer pricing methodology, comparative benchmarking study and the implications of holding TPD, including disclosure in tax returns and risks to ATO review/penalties.
