Transfer pricing compliance and documentation
Revenue authorities are focusing more widely and intensely on transfer pricing issues. From documentation to helping your practices match your policies, our teams of experienced professionals can help interpret the intent of tax authorities wherever you operate or intend to operate.
What EY can do for you
Appropriately pricing and documenting your intercompany transactions to comply with various countries‘ rules and legislation is imperative in managing tax risk.
Documenting intercompany transactions is the first line of defense when your transfer pricing practices are challenged.
Whether you choose to apply a globally centralized approach or a decentralized approach to your documentation needs, you need to understand the rigorous transfer pricing scrutiny in the countries where you operate so that you meet the local requirements, particularly where there is heightened risk. This risk-based approach allows you to align your company‘s business and tax strategies with your risk profile.
Transfer pricing documentation
EY has developed TP Web™, a comprehensive transfer pricing documentation tool that can help you streamline your internal processes and generate reporting packages to support transfer pricing documentation requirements under BEPS Action 13.
Country-by-country (CbC) reporting
EY has also developed a separate CbC reporting tool “CbCR Web™” that helps you generate CbC reporting data, as required under BEPS Action 13.
