How Is The International Tax And Transfer Pricing Landscape Evolving In India?

; posted on
April 11th, 2018

India has an observer status with OECD, represents G20 countries and is an active participant in OECD’s initiatives. India has applied several BEPS recommendations in last few years, namely signing of Multilateral Instruments, introduction of Country by Country Reporting (CbCR), Master file, secondary adjustments, GAAR, thin capitalisation rules, reinforcing substance requirement in the tax statute with inclusion of Significant Economic Presence there. Several landmark judgements have also been pronounced on key international tax issues.

The MNEs operating in India therefore need to examine and align their tax positions and Transfer Pricing documentation and Policies with these changes. It becomes essential for the tax and finance department in the MNE to gain an understanding of the plausible impact, issues and solutions surrounding the transformed international tax and transfer pricing landscape, in order to plan their risk mitigation strategies appropriately.
