The international aspects of 2017’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act legislation are more than a little intricate and we unpack how it affects businesses along with other tax items from transfer pricing to the repatriation of U.S. funds.
The Impact of BEPS on Transfer Pricing
World Finance reported that around 60 percent of international trade happens within multinationals and so transfer pricing is merely a way of life for these companies and subsidiaries. With this in mind, Country-by-Country Reporting (CbCR), part of OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan 13, is set to be a significant development surrounding annual returns. Paired with CbCR, BEPS also suggests utilizing a master file and local file. Bring in for scrutiny principles that are usually held at arm’s length. This session discusses the implementation and reporting requirements in a post BEPS environment. Learn how to successfully manage your Global TP Documentation.
