Profit-based methods[ edit ] Some methods of testing prices do not rely on actual transactions. Use of these methods may be necessary due to the lack of reliable data for transactional methods.

In some cases, non-transactional methods may be more reliable than transactional methods because market and economic adjustments to transactions may not be reliable. These methods may include: Comparable profits method CPM : profit levels of similarly situated companies in similar industries may be compared to an appropriate tested party. Transactional net margin method TNMM : while called a transactional method, the testing is based on profitability of similar businesses.

See OECD guidelines below.

Both methods rely on microeconomic analysis of data rather than specific transactions. These methods are discussed further with respect to the U. Two methods are often provided for splitting profits: [54] comparable profit split [55] and residual profit split. The residual profit split method requires a two step process: first profits are allocated to routine operations, then the residual profit is allocated based on nonroutine contributions of the parties.

The residual allocation may be based on external market benchmarks or estimation based on capitalised costs. Tested party and profit level indicator[ edit ] Where testing of prices occurs on other than a purely transactional basis, such as CPM or TNMM, it may be necessary to determine which of the two related parties should be tested.

Generally, this means that the tested party is that party with the most easily compared functions and risks. Comparing the tested party's results to those of comparable parties may require adjustments to results of the tested party or the comparables for such items as levels of inventory or receivables.

Testing requires determination of what indication of profitability should be used. Intangible property issues[ edit ] Valuable intangible property tends to be unique.


Often there are no comparable items. The value added by use of intangibles may be represented in prices of goods or services, or by payment of fees royalties for use of the intangible property. Licensing of intangibles thus presents difficulties in identifying comparable items for testing. The profit split method specifically attempts to take value of intangibles into account.


Services[ edit ] Enterprises may engage related or unrelated parties to provide services they need. Where the required services are available within a multinational group, there may be significant advantages to the enterprise as a whole for components of the group to perform those services. Two issues exist with respect to charges between related parties for services: whether services were actually performed which warrant payment, [61] and the price charged for such services. There may be tax advantages obtained for the group if one member charges another member for services, even where the member bearing the charge derives no benefit.

To combat this, the rules of most systems allow the tax authorities to challenge whether the services allegedly performed actually benefit the member charged.

The inquiry may focus on whether services were indeed performed as well as who benefited from the services.

Stewardship services are generally those that an investor would incur for its own benefit in managing its investments. Charges to the investee for such services are generally inappropriate. Where services were not performed or where the related party bearing the charge derived no direct benefit, tax authorities may disallow the charge altogether.

Where the services were performed and provided benefit for the related party bearing a charge for such services, tax rules also permit adjustment to the price charged. The OECD Guidelines provide that the provisions relating to goods should be applied with minor modifications and additional considerations. In the U. In both cases, standards of comparability and other matters apply to both goods and services. It is common for enterprises to perform services for themselves or for their components that support their primary business.

Examples include accounting, legal, and computer services for those enterprises not engaged in the business of providing such services.

Testing of prices charged in such case may be referred to a cost of services or services cost method. The cost-plus method, in particular, may be favored by tax authorities and taxpayers due to ease of administration.

Cost sharing[ edit ] Multi-component enterprises may find significant business advantage to sharing the costs of developing or acquiring certain assets, particularly intangible assets. Detailed U.

Approval of a final document by the Inclusive framework will be sought at the end of Any deadlock in the negotiations will mean that the country-by-country reporting scheme does not change, he said. Balco said that country tax officials are saying that they do not yet have enough experience with country-by-country reporting to recommend any changes.

Some countries are asking to revise the process so that countries can bring up issues about country-by-country reporting as they are discovered. Balco said that among the issues that might be addressed is whether the revenue threshold for country-by-country reporting should be lowered and whether the content of the country-by-country report, the form of the report, or the filing mechanisms should change. Balco said that more than 80 inclusive framework members have introduced country-by-country reporting laws and 25 more have a draft law in place.

In , 7, filings were made by either the ultimate parent of an MNE or a surrogate parent entity, he reported. Also, more than 2, bilateral exchange relationships have been established, 40 in the US alone. He added that more work needs to be done to ensure that developing countries can obtain and exchange country-by-country reports. Discussion will address the way forward, Balco said.

Further, he said that WP6 has completed issue scoping for an update to Chapter 4 of the OECD transfer pricing guidelines which deals with avoiding and resolving transfer pricing disputes.The information contained in herein is of a general nature and is not intended to address the circumstances of any particular individual or entity.

The U. KPMG International and its member firms are legally distinct and separate entities. Testing of prices charged in such case may be referred to a cost of services or services cost method. The inquiry may focus on whether services were indeed performed as well as who benefited from the services. Documentation requirements are quite specific, and generally require a best method analysis and detailed support for the pricing and methodology used for testing such pricing.
