Governments and revenue authorities are responding to the ever changing global tax landscape by strengthening legislation, demanding stricter documentation of transfer pricing (“TP”) practices and imposing higher penalties for non-compliance. The TP landscape has changed and evolved significantly in the Middle East. With an increasing number of Middle Eastern countries introducing TP legislation, adopting to best TP practices are becoming complex and critical for businesses in the region including Qatar. This growing complexity for groups operating in Qatar (both headquartered in the region and elsewhere) has made TP a reality in many multinational groups’ day-to-day business.

TP regulations and guidance in Qatar were released and updated in certain circumstances throughout 2020. As a result, TP is becoming an increasingly critical element of tax planning for multinational organizations.
