Profit attribution to permanent establishments and transfer pricing following the Roche case paper


The OECD finally released its Report on Attribution of Profits to PEs in July. This paper covers:

  • so what is the ‘Authorised OECD Approach'?
  • how will it fit with the ATO's guidance on attribution of profits to PEs in Australia?
  • what are the important issues for Australian taxpayers to be aware of?

The Roche Case was Australia's first legal decision on a substantive transfer pricing matter since the introduction of Division 13:

  • what does the decision mean for taxpayers and the ATO?
  • are profit methods dead?
  • what does it mean for the financial services sector?
