Sense and Sensibilities of TP Methods
- Comprehend the various transfer pricing methods and their application


Programme Synopsis
In recent years, transfer pricing (TP) has been a focus area of tax authorities globally. An area that taxpayers and authorities may disagree upon is the correct application of the five TP methods recognised by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), often escalating into disputes, in which companies have to demonstrate why and how the specific method was adopted.

Like the international tax authorities, Singapore has also stepped up on the reviewing of TP methods and documentation. As such, careful deliberation must be exercised when selecting the most suitable TP method. Above all, the method chosen must be correctly applied to justify an arms’ length price.

In this fourth segment of SIATP’s TP series, Ms Adriana Calderon, Director at Transfer Pricing Solutions Asia is back once again to share her expertise. Come gain practical insights of the common TP methods through various case studies and learn key tips to select and apply the TP method that best suits the type of related party transaction.

  • Learn how to determine and apply the most appropriate method rule
