OECD updates transfer pricing country profiles to include new fields on financial transactions and permanent establishments

The OECD has published updated transfer pricing country profiles, reflecting the current transfer pricing legislation and practices of 20 jurisdictions. These updated profiles also contain new information on countries’ legislation and practices regarding the transfer pricing treatment of financial transactions and the application of the Authorised OECD Approach (AOA) to attribute profits to permanent establishments.

The transfer pricing country profiles focus on countries’ domestic legislation regarding key transfer pricing aspects, including the arm’s length principle, methods, comparability analysis, intangible property, intra-group services, cost contribution agreements, documentation, administrative approaches to avoiding and resolving disputes, safe harbours and other implementation measures. In addition, the newly updated country profiles include two new sections. The first section relates to the transfer pricing treatment of financial transactions and the second on the application of the AOA to Permanent Establishments. The information contained in the country profiles is intended to clearly reflect the current state of countries’ legislation and to indicate to what extent their rules follow the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines and the AOA to Permanent Establishments. The information was provided by countries themselves in response to a questionnaire so as to achieve the highest degree of accuracy.
