Transfer Pricing & MDR

Due to the implementation of the EU Mandatory Disclosure Directive (MDD/DAC6), potentially aggressive tax arrangements have to be reported to tax authorities. This will increase the compliance burden for companies and may impact tax structures, including transfer pricing arrangements. As it is not fully clear which arrangements need to be reported, the mandatory disclosure rules are often considered as complicated to apply.

We host a webinar to guide you through the transfer pricing aspects of the mandatory disclosure rules. Particular attention is paid to

  • What kind of arrangements have to be reported.
  • The specific transfer pricing hallmarks:
    • Unilateral safe harbor rules;
    • Transfer of hard-to-value intangibles; and
    • Transfer of functions, risks or assets.
  • Non-TP specific hallmarks related to transfer pricing.

Speakers: Rudolf Sinx & Stefan Ubachs

Controversy in a post-Corona era

As companies are focusing on their business models and transfer pricing policies to survive the corona crisis, national governments are granting financial support and incentives to save the companies from bankruptcy. In a time of declining tax revenues, the government’s budget deficit will increase rapidly.

It is expected that after the corona crisis the local tax authorities will focus on increasing the tax revenue by among others assessing companies’ transfer pricing policies.

This might lead to an increase in tax audits, questions and disputes.

During this webinar we will provide you with some attention points on how to prepare for these challenges, including:

  • The impact of the increased transparency post-BEPS.
  • Choices in strategy towards controversy: proactive vs. reactive.
  • Set-up of a robust Tax Control Framework.

Speakers: Richard Slimmen and Emile Monfils
