  • Share

On 20 June 2013, the Ukrainian Parliament adopted the Draft Law On Amending the Tax Code on Transfer Pricing in its first reading. The Draft Law is the first document in Ukrainian history that introduces comprehensive transfer pricing rules. The list of controlled transactions includes cross-border and domestic transactions between related parties if the overall annual volume of all transactions with the counterparty exceeds UAH 50 million per year. Other transactions will be subject to control as well.

The Draft Law requires taxpayers to file annual transfer pricing reports before 1 May of the year that follows the reporting year. It also provides for special tax audits and prohibits the tax authorities from testing (reviewing) transfer prices within regular tax audits.

Furthermore, the Draft Law proposes special rules for determining arm's length prices on import and export of metallurgical and agro industrial goods as well as of certain other types of goods.

The Parliament's Committee on Tax and Customs Policy has to prepare the Draft Law for its second reading in the near future.

Further developments will be reported in future Alerts.
