Bangladesh transfer pricing regulation targets international transactions between two associated entities, either or both of whom are non-residents. Transfer pricing regulation mostly affects multinational companies or foreign companies having direct or indirect transactions with their subsidiaries, associates or other legal form of entities (e.g. liaison office, branch office, agent, etc.) in Bangladesh.
