Revamping Transfer Pricing

On 12 September 2023, the European Commission introduced two directive proposals. One of the proposals, relates to transfer pricing (“TP Directive”) and aims to reshape the landscape of transfer pricing (“TP”) regulations across the single market. If unanimously accepted by all EU Member States, these rules would result in (more or less) harmonized TP rules. Member States would be obligated to apply the at arm’s length principle in line with the OECD TP Guidelines and taxpayers would be required to apply the most appropriate TP method. Furthermore, the TP Directive offers methods to avoid double taxation and a fast-track procedure to resolve double taxation. These rules would apply as from 1 January 2026.
