Connecting and converging transfer pricing, customs, duty and BEPS - it's not getting any easier!

Tax Law; International Trade

As cross-border trade in goods and services continues to increase, the international tax transfer pricing rules—fuelled by the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project—are getting even more onerous. There is also on-going tension between transfer pricing and customs duty obligations. This session will provide an update on a number of issues, including: 1. BEPS is great but wait, what about customs declarations? 2. BEPS, OECD Action 8, update on intangibles and TP generally (and the risks of not considering the customs consequences) 3. China update, including: China & BEPS; revised special adjustment rules; and revised tax collection administration law 4. Transfer pricing and intragroup cross-border financing—Chevron v Federal Cmmr of Taxation (and why lawyers matter) 5. Profit Split vs TNMM—is PSM becoming the new norm? 6. New EU Customs Code 7. Implications of BEPS on supply chain management 8. Customs valuation in the BEPS era: pitfalls and opportunities 9. EU State Aid (including possibility of transfer pricing rulings as State Aid)
