Transfer pricing pertains to the prices established for transactions among companies in the same corporate group but situated in different countries. These transactions involve the transfer of goods, services, financial assets, or intangible assets and are subject to taxation in each country of operation.

Pricing transactions between related parties is a complex issue influenced by various factors such as tax rate disparities, local market conditions, and intellectual property value. As a result, the MMA team is having professional tax advisors and transfer pricing specialists to ensure that your transfer pricing practices comply with local regulations and best practices.

Arm’s Length Price

The concept of arms’ length price has been defined under Section 92F of the Income Tax Act. The use of arm's length pricing is intended to ensure that related parties do not engage in price manipulation to avoid taxes or shift profits to low-tax jurisdictions. By using arm's length pricing as a benchmark, tax authorities can assess whether the prices charged in related-party transactions are appropriate, and can adjust them if necessary to ensure that taxes are paid in the appropriate jurisdiction.
