Workshop: Structuring Alternative Investments (Private Equity, Real estate, etc.) in the post-beps era
Luxembourg companies may enter into diverse commercial and financial transactions with associated enterprises. The prices charged in regard to these controlled transactions are called transfer prices. For Luxembourg tax purposes, these prices have to adhere to the “arm’s length principle”.
The arm’s length principle is the international transfer pricing standard that OECD member countries have agreed should be used for tax purposes by MNE groups and tax administrations. The arm`s length principle requires that the remuneration for any transaction between related parties conform to that what would have been agreed if the transaction were to have taken place between unrelated parties under comparable circumstances.
The arm’s length principle is firmly ingrained in Luxembourg tax law and has been explicitly stated in article 56 of the Luxembourg Income Tax Law (LITL). In addition, several concepts and provisions under Luxembourg tax law require the arm’s length standard to be respected by Luxembourg companies (the concepts of hidden dividend distributions and hidden capital contribution, etc.).
Over the last years, transfer pricing has become the hot topic in Luxembourg taxation in an environment that relies increasingly less on tax rulings. In the past, tax rulings were viewed as a way to provide certainty and to avoid risks when implementing investments or intra-group transactions. However, for a number of reasons this is no longer the case and transfer pricing documentation is more and more filling the gap as a tax risk management tool.
As a member of the OECD, Luxembourg adheres to the organization’s Transfer Pricing Guidelines which reflect the consensus of OECD Member countries towards the application of the arm’s length principle as provided in article 9(1) of the OECD Model Tax Convention.
Transfer pricing and the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines received a lot of attention during the OECD/G20 in their Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiative. 4 of the 15 BEPS Actions aimed at providing new or changing existing transfer pricing guidance and related documentation requirements. As a result thereof, several chapters of the OECD Guidelines have been significantly amended or replaced in the 2017 Revision thereof.
Upon successful completion of this workshop, the participants will:
