Singapore Transfer Pricing Guidelines, 6th Edition: Key Changes

On-Demand Webinar


On 10 August 2021, the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (“IRAS”) issued the 6th (and latest) edition of its Transfer Pricing guidelines. Some of the key changes introduced by the IRAS are in line with the changes introduced by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) as part of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plans, so as to ensure consistency with the global tax arena. 

The guidelines also reinforce IRAS’ commitment to the arm’s length principle, transfer pricing documentation, and assisting Singapore taxpayers on dispute resolution and prevention avenues. In addition, the IRAS has also provided clarity on a range of topics that are highly relevant to Singapore taxpayers, e.g., Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”) on Transfer Pricing Documentation.

Programme Outline: 

  • Key changes in the 6th edition of the Singapore Transfer Pricing Guidelines
  • Ongoing focus that taxpayers need to have in their transfer pricing documentation, including FAQs on preparing transfer pricing documentation.
  • Guidance on intra-group services, including the treatment for OECD low value-adding services;
  • Expanded guidance for intra-group financial transactions; and
  • Clarification on the application/remission of the IRAS surcharge on transfer pricing adjustments.

This Webinar is Suitable for: 

  • C-suite executives
  • Business owners
  • Accounting, Banking, Finance, Legal, IT and Trust professionals
  • Tax practitioners
