With an increasing number of countries embracing Transfer Pricing (“TP”) regulations including mandatory documentation, TP is becoming increasingly complex. In India, the ongoing enforcement of TP regulations in the country and adjustments being made focussing on new and more complicated issues have brought to the fore the reality that TP controversies are expensive and time-consuming to deal with and frequently result in double taxation of income and lead to considerable uncertainty. Further, with the advent of Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (“BEPS”), TP is expected to become a focus area for India and other jurisdictions as well.

KPMG’s Global TP Services (“GTPS”) practice, is a global network comprising TP professionals from KPMG member firms, across the globe. KPMG in India has a dedicated team of experienced TP professionals, including accountants, tax practitioners, specialists and financial analysts, who can offer essential local knowledge within a global framework.
