The Cyprus International Business Association, in collaboration with the Cyprus Fiduciary Association, are organizing two independent 3-hour seminars titled “Transfer pricing Masterclass.” 

On Thursday, 30 June 2022 the Cyprus Parliament passed a law introducing detailed Transfer Pricing legislation, marking a new era in company taxation, with effect from 1 January 2022. The OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines as amended from time to time, have been legislatively incorporated in Cyprus.

Transfer pricing Cyprus deserves to be a top-of-mind priority. The OECD, United Nations, European Union and individual countries have changed and keep changing their guidance in the field of transfer pricing due to the BEPS Project. The new guidance can be considered a game-changer and is expected to alter the transfer pricing outcomes in many situations. This requires a different approach from both tax authorities and multinational enterprises. A significantly more granular risk and functional analysis should be performed. Companies, as well as tax authorities, need to have a better understanding of how value is created concerning the development and exploitation of their intangibles. A further focus is on how companies and tax authorities should deal with the three-tiered OECD approach related to transfer pricing documentation.

The masterclass has been specially tailored to the practical needs of transfer pricing professionals working in various industrial and service sectors. The masterclass comprises 4 case studies with respect to:

  1. Intra-Group Financial Transactions;
  2. Intra-Group Services;
  3. Transfer Pricing and Intangibles (e.g. Intra-Group license and R&D);
  4. Limited risk distributor. 

By the end of the seminar, the participants will be able to deal with all developments in the field of transfer pricing properly and fully understand the transfer pricing principles and methodologies and their practical application. This 3-hour tax training course introduces participants to such principles and methodologies and then covers their application to specific categories of intra-group dealings. 

Who should participate

The course is suitable for practitioners in tax advisory firms, and tax specialists in commerce and industry who regularly encounter issues related to transfer pricing. This is an intermediary/advanced-level course for managers or directors with accounting and law responsibility, including – certified and chartered accountants, lawyers, business consultants, tax advisers, management consultants, audit managers, and financial managers.
