Risks & Solutions

  • Loss-making,
    low margin

    Loss-making or low-margin limited risk companies may be challenged by tax authorities. You need to identify special factors or review the transfer price through transfer pricing planning.

  • Royalty

    Royalty payment for the same technology/know-how for a long period of time may be challenged by tax authorities as the value of the intangible assets may not be properly assessed. A risk assessment should be conducted and determine the needs to review the license.

  • End-year TP

    Year-end transfer pricing adjustments may be challenged by tax authorities if the adjustments do not comply with the transfer pricing guidelines or transfer pricing documentation is not prepared. Since some countries do not allow the year-end transfer pricing adjustments, we recommend you consult with transfer pricing advisors before such adjustments.

  • No Preparation/
    update of transfer
    pricing documentation

    Many countries require transfer pricing documentation by the time for the making of the tax return every year, and non-compliance can result in penalties, including surcharges. To avoid non-compliance, annual updates and major updates every three years are required.

  • Service fee

    Service fee payment without benefits test, appropriate fee computation and deliverables may be challenged by tax authorities. We recommend you conduct a risk assessment and review the current transfer pricing policy, if necessary.

  • Loan interest,
    guarantee fee

    Loan interest/guarantee fee payment without proper evaluation of credit ratings of the borrower and the guarantor/guarantee may be challenged by tax authorities. We recommend you conduct a risk assessment and review of the current transfer pricing policy, if necessary.

  • New transactions
    with related parties

    New transactions may result in changes in function, risk and profit allocation. Non-arm's length pricing or profit margin may be challenged by tax authorities. We recommend you set price or profit margin based on transfer pricing planning.
