TP Audit Forum | Two Sides of the Same Coin

Today, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) is championing the reformation of global tax landscape via the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (“BEPS”) initiative. Specifically, with the introduction of BEPS Action 13 (Transfer Pricing Documentation and Country-by-Country Reporting), there is collaboration amongst Tax Authorities worldwide for mutual exchange of information and increased transfer pricing transparency.

Malaysia is NO exception as the Malaysian Inland Revenue Board (“HASiL”) continues to mirror the same by gazetting various transfer pricing rules and regulations.

With these enforcements, the transfer pricing compliance and audit scrutiny will persist to be a major focus of HASiL and NOW, the burden to prove the economic substance and arm’s length principle of intercompany/related party transactions is a greater responsibility for taxpayers. These are two sides of the same coin!

With the aim of perspective-taking of HASiL and taxpayers, we are pleased to invite you to join our forum co-paneled with experienced officers from the Multinational Tax Branch of HASiL. From this forum, we believe that we can heighten the awareness on transfer pricing compliance and audit scrutiny where taxpayers can benefit from understanding the main focus of HASiL and their expectations.

In this forum, amongst others, we will discuss topics and issues surrounding the following:

  • Evolvement of transfer pricing in Form C of the Company’s Tax Return and taxpayers’ expected/next course of action;
  • Walkthrough real-life transfer pricing audit cases covering restructuring exercise, tax incentives, consistently loss making position and inter-company financial assistance; and
  • Sharing of best transfer pricing compliance practices.

Also, as a token of goodwill, KPMG will be providing a complimentary TP health check for taxpayers participating in this forum.
