Transfer Pricing (Documents And Certification)


Transfer Pricing (Documents And Certification)

Indian income tax rules stipulate that multinational companies must maintain documents pertaining to international transactions or specified domestic transactions. Failing to do so will invite unnecessary penalties and disciplinary action from the tax department. It is, therefore, crucial for such organisations to maintain proper documentation and be compliant so that they can run their business hassle-free.

Since transfer pricing laws can be very complex, it would be advisable to let a professional firm like CM Shah & Co. take care of all your transfer pricing documentation needs. We possess in-depth experience related to dealing with transfer pricing issues for our clients belonging to various industries.

Let us first understand in detail what documents you will need to prepare and submit to the tax authorities.

Transfer Pricing Documentation Requirements

These are the main documents you will need to prepare:

  • Transfer Pricing Certification (Form 3CEB)/A report from a chartered accountant
  • Country by Country Report and Master File
  • Documents containing details of international and specified domestic transactions.

Transfer Pricing Certificate

The law requires a taxpayer to obtain a Transfer Pricing Certificate (Form 3CEB) that is signed by an accountant. The form contains three parts, with Part A consisting of general information, Part B with details of international transactions, and Part C with particulars of Specified Domestic transactions.

Country by Country Report

According to BEPS (Base Erosion and Profit Shifting) Action plan 13, the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) has directed multinational companies to provide a report to the tax authorities once a year for every jurisdiction where they conduct business. This report is known as the Country by Country Report, which contains the main elements of financial statements as per the specific jurisdiction. The report enables local authorities to look at details like income tax paid, revenue, or capital.

Master File

It contains important information regarding a company’s international operations and its transfer pricing policy.

Failure to maintain and submit these mandatory documents or under-reporting your income can lead to hefty penalties. CM Shah & Co.’s dedicated team will help you prepare these documents in time to avoid such penalties and ensure you are in the good books of the tax authorities.
