CBC Reporting (OECD)

Businesses will be required to provide FTA with visibility over their global operations.

UAE decided to undertake certain tax reforms to strengthen the UAE’s international position and enhance its cooperation with the international community with regard to the exchange of information for tax purposes. The Ministry of Finance (MoF) signed a multilateral competent authority agreement (MCAA) on the exchange of Country-by-Country reports (CbCR) under the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Inclusive Framework. UAE has committed to implement certain BEPS minimum standards in which Action 13 is Transfer Pricing documentation and Country-by-Country Reporting. This will be a significant step for multinational enterprises (MNE’s) to optimize their operating structures and understand additional compliance and reporting standards.

    MSATC Tax Advisor will cover the latest international transfer pricing rules and its impact in the Middle East and North Africa.

    You should know that the impact of transfer pricing in the MENA region until recently in the Middle East and North Africa region did not consider transfer pricing as a high priority on their government agendas.

    However, the significant international emphasis on the BEPS project (Base Erosion Profit Shifting) has encouraged governments across the MENA region to consider updating their legislation.

    BEPS project was commissioned by the G20 and coordinated by the OECD in 2008 which has highlighted transfer pricing issues and become top priority with fiscal authorities and politicians worldwide when dealing with international intercompany cross border commercial transactions between their countries and others.

    Specifically, Saudi and Egypt have introduced revised legislation which presents several tax and legal challenges for multinational enterprises operating in this region. In view of the above, multinational enterprises and government organizations should proactively prepare to manage the challenges arising when aligning with revised transfer pricing rules.
