Transfer Pricing Consulting in Thailand

Often driven by the OECD’s Profit Shifting and Base Erosion recommendations, Transfer Pricing is an area of intense scrutiny by tax authorities around the world and can be incredibly expensive for international companies if they cannot evidence and support the arm’s length nature of their related party transactions and become subject to one-sided tax return adjustments, penalties, surcharges and having to deal with protracted tax authority enquiries.  

 

A proactive, technically sound, and consistent approach to transfer pricing by international companies will always be a better strategy than a reactive response involving tax authority enquiries, disputes, and audits. This is even more relevant today with the emphasis on transparency and wide-ranging exchange of information between tax authorities, and especially now that Thailand has signed the OECD’s Multilateral instrument.

PKF can also assist your Company by:

 

■     Reviewing Management Agreements, Services Agreements, Loan agreements, etc., with overseas related companies to advise you on the Thai transfer pricing exposures to the Company so action can be taken to make such agreements more robust and acceptable to the TRD (tax authority).
