Transfer Pricing and Intangibles: Introduction

Today, intangible property generally represents between 40-80% of ‘value-add’ of international enterprises (MNEs), making it a key component of a MNEs value chain. Intangible property includes business rights associated with commercial activities, including marketing activities. Intangible property will not always be shown on the balance sheet of a company, and often intangible property attracts a considerable risk, e.g. contractproduct liability.

Given that Transfer Pricing issues pertaining to intangibles are a key area of concern to governments and taxpayers, the OECD found that updating Chapter VI and VIII of the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines has become an increasingly important issue in the evolution of new business realities and subsequent adaptations to the Transfer Pricing regulations.

Beroepsbeeld: waar werk je en wat doe je?

Transfer Pricing and intangibles are one of the most important areas of Transfer Pricing at the moment. General consensus among taxpayers and tax authorities alike is that there is currently insufficient international guidance, in particular regarding the definition, identification and valuation of intangibles for Transfer Pricing purposes. The outcomes of OECD’s project on intangibles are likely be far reaching and as such this promises to be the most challenging and ambitious project that OECD have undertaken to date.
