Transfer Pricing & Intangibles

Algemene informatie over de cursus

ImmateriŽle activa zijn een zeer belangrijk aandachtsgebied binnen Transfer Pricing. De definitie en waardering van immateriŽle activa voor Transfer Pricing doeleinden staan evenwel onder druk vanwege het gebrek aan (inter)nationale richtlijnen. De uitkomsten van het OECD project over immateriŽle activa zullen daarom vťrstrekkend zijn. Daarmee is het project over immateriŽle activa een van de meest uitdagende en ambitieuze projecten die OECD tot nu toe heeft ondernomen.

LESSON I
Transfer Pricing and Intangibles: Introduction
Today, intangible property generally represents between 40-80% of Ďvalue-addí of international enterprises (MNEs), making it a key component of an MNEs value chain. Intangible property includes business rights associated with commercial activities, including marketing activities. Intangible property will not always be shown on the balance sheet of a company, and often intangible property attracts a considerable risk, e.g. contractproduct liability.

Given that Transfer Pricing issues pertaining to intangibles are a key area of concern to governments and taxpayers, the OECD found that updating Chapter VI and VIII of the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines has become an increasingly important issue in the evolution of new business realities and subsequent adaptations to the Transfer Pricing regulations.
