  • Summary
  • Programme

With the introduction of Actions 8-10 under the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project, various Multinational Enterprises  (MNEs) would need to relook at their existing group structures to ensure that allocation of profits to companies within the MNE group is aligned with the economic activity that produces the profit.

One of the key guidance under the BEPS project on intangibles is that ‘legal’ ownership of the intangibles does not automatically entitle the owner to the allocation of residual profits in relation to the exploitation of the intangibles.

We have seen these concepts being asserted in the recently revised transfer pricing guidelines in Singapore and this has made it critical for businesses to be aware of developments which may impact their dealings with related parties, particularly in the intangible space.

We would like to invite you to a breakfast briefing session where transfer pricing experts from BDO Singapore would share with you how these recent changes could impact your Singapore business and overseas investments. Please find the details below:
