Intercompany loans are loans from one entity to another, within the same company. This can offer your company multiple advantages, such as quickly shifting cash between entities or avoiding bank fees. QG can help to prepare all relevant documentation for intercompany loans.
Transfer Pricing attention towards financial transactions has taken a flight in recent years and has further increased after the release of the OECD Guidance on this topic in February 2020. Our financial transactions team supports our clients in this field and offers all types of analyses relating to intercompany financial transactions. Since the publication of Chapter X of the OECD Guidelines, financial transactions have attracted increasing attention from tax authorities and MNEs. Your company may face challenges in setting at arm’s length prices for intercompany loans, guarantees and cash pooling structures, as well as preparing proper transfer pricing documentation. Complexity has increased, partly because of the regulatory landscape driven by the OECD, European Commission and the national tax authorities.
