How to Prepare Your Own Transfer Pricing Documentation

Tax Workshop:  PetroVietnam Tower, HCMC on 28 October 2010   

No one knows your company like you do, so why not learn how to prepare your own Transfer Pricing documentation?

It may be a cost-effective solution to meet your obligations under Vietnam tax law with respect to the transactions your Vietnam company has with group entities.

By attending our Transfer Pricing workshop we will teach you:

  • Basic transfer pricing methodology, giving you the tools to verify and substantiate that your transactions are performed in accordance with the arm’s-length principle, i.e. that the prices are in accordance with the requirements of the tax regulations.
  • Practical examples on how to analyze the most relevant transaction types, including :

₋      Purchase and sale of raw materials
₋      Purchase and sale of finished goods
₋      Sales and Marketing services
₋      Administrative and financial services
₋      Intra-group finance
₋      Royalties

  • How to utilize benchmarks/database searches as a basis for transfer pricing analysis
  • How to structure and draft transfer pricing documentation, with special attention on how to prepare:

₋     Description of the company and its activities
₋     Description of the industry and relevant market conditions
₋     Functional analysis of the transactions – describing the facts relevant to the economic analysis
₋     Economic analysis – verifying that the transactions are done at arm’s-length conditions.
