Programme Synopsis

The myth that using the “cost plus 5% mark-up” practice for any intra-group service transaction makes an organisation compliant with transfer pricing (TP) regulations runs deep and is widely followed but is ultimately erroneous. 

This live webinar session facilitated by Ms Adriana Calderon, Director at Transfer Pricing Solutions Asia, will bust this myth and cut to the core of services transactions to highlight the practical key areas, blind spots and TP complexities. 

Understanding the challenges of having to effectively participate in a webinar amidst a busy day working from home, the Singapore Institute of Accredited Tax Professionals presents a punchy new series that brings you what really matters.

In 60 minutes followed by a Q&A for tax professionals to exchange perspectives, participants will walk away with an understanding of the practical issues to note in services transactions to minimise risk in this area. These include handy tips to note in conducting the benefits test, cost analysis, ascertaining the appropriate mark-up through benchmarking, considerations to bear in mind to implement service charge uniformly.
