Global Transfer Pricing for Irish Business – The Tax Professional’s Guide
Transfer pricing has emerged as one of the most important areas of focus in international taxation. Global Transfer Pricing for Irish Business – The Tax Professional’s Guide provides a practical guide to assist tax professionals in their understanding of transfer pricing and managing the many challenges they face in this area. It is essential reading for all tax and finance professionals operating in an international business context. Irish transfer pricing rules are under review and it is expected that Ireland will formally adopt the revised 2017 OECD guidelines on transfer pricing with effect from 2020. However most Irish businesses are already having to address the new guidelines in their transfer pricing within other jurisdictions. The book, therefore, is based on current Irish law and identifies areas under review and expected changes. It includes a specific chapter addressing the key aspects of the revised 2017 guidelines that are currently impacting business.
This first edition has been written as a practical guide to the application of transfer pricing concepts, methodologies, challenges and solutions relevant in an Irish context and covers:
- Irish legislative framework and OECD guidelines;
- Common transactions and how transfer pricing methods apply in practice;
- Benchmarking transfer prices;
- Irish transfer pricing compliance – transfer pricing documentation;
- BEPS impact – country-by-country reporting, financial transactions, intangible ownership and valuation, permanent establishments;
- Business restructurings;
- Transfer pricing dispute resolution; and
- Landmark international transfer pricing cases.
