Digitalize your transfer pricing documentation

What is it all about

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.

How you do it

How do you do it

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.

 

Transfer pricing documentation

Manage your transfer pricing documentation in different ways.

  • Have a process for collecting completed documentation with supporting documents to ensure that an entity has prepared a full set of documentation.
  • Have a process for managing templates where you can make templates available for local people to download, complete and upload to the group.
  • Have a process where you can assign preparation of different sections in the documentation to the relevant people in accordance with your tax policy and transfer pricing function. By doing this you have created a flexible and digitalized library for the compilation of transfer pricing documentation for jurisdictions/entities/transactions.
