TAX DISPUTE RESOLUTION

The peculiarity of this matter depends on the fact that the determination of the correct transfer price passes through an evaluation process that must take into consideration the characteristics of the transactions carried out and the reference markets, the strategies of the company and the group, the assets involved , the functions performed and the risks assumed.
It will be in the interest of the tax payer to detail these aspects as clearly as possible, in order to provide the administration with the information framework necessary to find the adequacy of the transfer prices adopted.
Agreeing in advance with the Public Administration, through the use of the international ruling procedure, it is possible also on a bilateral basis, could offer the advantage of avoiding checks and penalties. Furthermore, as clarified by the tax office old communication date d 25 / E / 2014, towards those accessing the procedure, it will be possible to initiate checks only with reference to issues other than those covered by the ruling, in order to prevent the same business model being the subject of a different interpretation.
Thus, a ruling concerning transfer prices should inhibit further controls, such as those relating to stable hidden organization or other aspects relating to the same business model.
