With a large number of entities in many countries it is difficult to have an efficient process for the preparation of the transfer pricing documentation and control of whether the local entities in the company group have fulfilled their local documentation requirements. Information is found in many different places which makes it important to set up clear roles and responsibilities for the preparation process. There are also different requirements in different jurisdictions which implies that you must ensure that the documentation meets local requirements. Furthermore, the complexity and process for preparation differs a lot depending on the significance of the business activity/transactions performed in an entity.
Coordination is not only necessary for in-house preparation since transfer pricing documentation is often prepared by external advisors. Thus, the in-house tax department should be able to coordinate work performed by an external party.
We support you in finding a process for identifying where your information concerning intra-group transactions can be found. Thereafter, we put in place a process to collect this in the most efficient way which enables you to get control of your transactions. This could be done via import of transactions into our Transaction identifier module by manual or automatic import, Excel upload or a combination. When you have identified and collected your transactions, you can specify the transactions with the necessary data, such as the type of transaction, pricing method (functional analysis, decide transfer pricing method and margin) and underlying agreement.
