The subject of intangibles and value creation have become key to transfer pricing, especially,  where multinational enterprises (MNEs) proactively use them to allocate their profits across their  numerous subdivisions.

 As such, most of the transfer pricing audits embarked on by tax  authorities, including the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), focus on intensive scrutiny of related  party transactions involving intangibles in an attempt to claim what they perceive as their fair  share of the MNEs’ global tax revenue.

CJEU decisions on progressive tax on turnover and fines related to advertising tax

On March 3, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) rendered its decisions in three cases, (C-482/18), (C-323/18) and (C-75/18), each of which concerned aspects of Hungarian law. The CJEU decided that the EU freedom of establishment does not preclude Member States from levying a progressive tax on turnover, the actual burden of which is mainly borne by companies controlled from another Member State. The Court also ruled that Hungarian advertisement tax penalty regime disproportionately affected companies located in another EU Member State and was therefore contrary to the EU principle of freedom to provide services.
