Methods similar to resale price and cost plus also apply to service transactions the gross services margin method under Treasury Regulation Section 1. The CPM is applied using publicly available data that can be readily accessed and relaxed standards of comparability.
Is there a hierarchy of preferred methods? Are there explicit limits or restrictions on certain methods? The regulations require consideration of the following criteria to determine the best transfer pricing method:. What rules, standards and best practices should be considered when undertaking a comparability analysis?
The US transfer pricing regulations contain a set of general rules for analysing comparability, as well as rules that are specific to certain kinds of transactions or transfer pricing methods. The general comparability criteria under Treasury Regulation Section 1. In general, a more relaxed set of comparability criteria applies to the use of the comparable profits method, which requires only the generalised comparability of functions, assets and risks Treasury Regulation Section 1.
More strict comparability criteria apply to the use of:. In addition, strict comparability criteria apply to using the profit split methods Treasury Regulation Section 1. It is good practice to consider whether the controlled transactions being analysed are routine in nature or have unusual characteristics. In general, routine distribution, manufacturing or service activities can be analysed using the CPM with a cursory functional and comparability analysis.
High-value transactions — especially licences of valuable intangible property or the provision of high-value added services or both — should be analysed with a rigorous functional analysis, taking into account all of the general comparability criteria set out above, and the specific comparability criteria required by the transfer pricing method chosen for the analysis. Are there any special considerations or issues specific to your jurisdiction that associated parties should bear in mind when selecting transfer pricing methods?
There are two classic types of transfer pricing case that require special considerations when selecting or applying transfer pricing methods in the United States. The first classic case is recurring losses or low profits incurred by a foreign-controlled US entity marketing and distributing products on behalf of a foreign-related party. The second classic case is where high profits are earned by a foreign affiliate of a US entity in a low-tax jurisdiction when the foreign affiliate is a licensee of intangible property licensed from the United States, including cases where the foreign affiliate participates in a cost-sharing arrangement with a US entity.
In the second type of classic transfer pricing case, IRS economists are generally reluctant to agree to use the CUT method as a basis for evaluating royalty rates.

Instead, IRS economists typically apply the CPM to treat the foreign affiliate as a contract manufacturer or routine distributor, which has the effect of limiting any upside profit potential from the licence transaction. Accordingly, taxpayers using the CUT method must be prepared to discuss and justify why it, and not the CPM, is the best transfer pricing method. What rules and procedures govern the preparation and filing of transfer pricing documentation including submission deadlines or timeframes?
In the United States, the preparation of transfer pricing documentation is not affirmatively required by law or regulation. The transfer pricing penalty provisions under Internal Revenue Code Sections e and h are triggered when taxpayers fail to reasonably comply with the documentation requirements. Transfer pricing penalties may be avoided if the following requirements under Treasury Regulation Section 1.
What content requirements apply to transfer pricing documentation? A master file report is not specifically required. However, the 10 principal documents required for a US transfer pricing report will meet most requirements for a master file report.

This penalty applies:. The documentation must be made contemporaneously and must be completed and in existence when the company files the relevant federal income tax return.
Transfer pricing documentation generally needs to be provided to the IRS within 30 days of a request being made.
What best practices should be considered when compiling and maintaining transfer pricing documentation eg, in terms of risk assessment and audits? There are two classic types of transfer pricing case that require special considerations when a taxpayer compiles transfer pricing documentation in the United States. The second classic case is one where high profits are earned by a foreign affiliate of a US entity in a low-tax jurisdiction when the foreign affiliate is a licensee of intangible property licensed from the United States, including cases where the foreign affiliate participates in a cost-sharing arrangement with the US entity.
In many cases, IRS economists apply the CPM to treat the foreign affiliate as a contract manufacturer or routine distributor, which has the effect of limiting any upside profit potential from the licence transaction. Are advance pricing agreements with the tax authorities in your jurisdiction possible? If so, what form do they typically take eg, unilateral, bilateral or multilateral and what enterprises and transactions can they cover? Yes, advance pricing agreements APAs are available.
APAs may be unilateral, bilateral or multilateral. APAs can cover any type of transaction that is subject to the US transfer pricing rules, as well as income allocations attributable to US permanent establishments. There is no limit on the types of entity that can apply for an APA. Section 3 of the Appendix to Revenue Procedure provides for two levels of fees for initial APA requests, depending on the combined gross income of the taxpayer and all commonly controlled foreign and US parties for their most recently completed month fiscal year.
A taxpayer may file an unlimited number of initial APA requests within a single day period for a single fee, provided there are no more than two competent authorities. Transactions will qualify for this reduced fee if:. Are there any special considerations or issues specific to your jurisdiction that parties should bear in mind when seeking to conclude an advance pricing agreement including any particular advantages and disadvantages? At the heart of an APA is the agreement among the tax authorities to give effect to the approved transfer pricing method TPM. Less frequently, an APA will use one of the traditional transfer pricing methods recognised by most Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development member countries — such as a comparable uncontrolled price, a resale price or cost-plus methods — or certain other methods eg, reasonable profit-split that have gained some acceptance as a fourth method.
