What a busy week it has been with the third meeting on the Inclusive Framework on BEPS, including the release of some new draft reports. Furthermore, the final version of the toolkit addressing the lack of comparables was released. Lastly, FERMA provided draft guidance to the OECD on captive (re)insurance. Not that there wasnt enough reading material already.

Before going into more detail, I wanted to touch base on the picture. The search term “BEPS” is used now more often in Google searches than “transfer pricing.” It just shows how everything has shifted from a transfer pricing only world to a BEPS and value creation world. Another interesting, yet maybe not as academic observation, is that people stop searching for transfer pricing over Christmas, which doesn’t seem to be true for BEPS. But let’s get back to the transfer pricing roundup (or maybe I should call it a BEPS roundup?). 

The OECD states that over 200 delegates from 83 countries and jurisdictions as well as 12 international and regional organisations met in Noordvijk, the Netherlands for the Third Meeting of the Inclusive Framework on BEPS. The meeting welcomed Vietnam as its newest and 100th member and discussed and approved its first monitoring report. The report highlights the progress that has been achieved since the Inclusive Framework first met in Kyoto in June 2016. The meeting also approved the release of discussion drafts on Attribution of Profits to Permanent Establishments and Transactional Profit Splits.

The “Platform for Collaboration on Tax” published its final version of the toolkit designed to provide developing countries practical guidance on how to address the lack of comparables in transfer pricing. The toolkit includes a supplementary report on the pricing of transactions between related parties in the extractive industries and also addresses the information gaps on prices of minerals sold in an intermediate form (including concentrates).
