Transfer Pricing Documentation

Since the introduction of the Master File, Local File and Country-by-Country reporting, the compliance requirements of multinational groups have increased considerably.

Multinational groups are faced with questions such as:

  • How to set up this documentation as efficiently as possible?

  • How to keep the documentation up-to-date and consistent across the group?

  • How to ensure it is prepared and filed on time.

In addition, benchmarking analyses to set and/or substantiate intercompany prices must be regularly updated. This includes benchmarking of financial transactions.

This integrated approach ensures compliant Transfer Pricing Documentation. The documentation combines your business know-how and market intelligence with our transfer pricing expertise and experience.

The Netherlands

In the Netherlands, the Transfer Pricing Documentation required depends on the group’s consolidated revenue. That revenue will determine whether the following statutory requirements must be complied with:

  • Preparing general transfer pricing documentation

  • Preparing documentation in the Master File and Local File format and/or preparing and submitting a Country-by-Country report and/or notification.

Global Reach

Under the OECD’s BEPS Action 13, a standardized approach to transfer pricing documentation has been adopted worldwide. Many jurisdictions have implemented deadlines for preparing and submitting the Master File and Local File as well as for complying with Country-by-Country reporting obligations.

Some countries have additional local transfer pricing documentation or disclosure requirements that must be met. A sound process, including good planning and oversight, is necessary in order to meet compliance requirements and avoid penalties or other adverse consequences.

To get you started, there is the Global Transfer Pricing summary report prepared by KPMG Global Transfer Pricing Services. This regularly updated report lists the worldwide Country-by-Country reporting and Master File / Local File documentation requirements.

Our experts can help you plan and prepare your Transfer Pricing Documentation for the Netherlands and elsewhere. Depending on your needs, we work together with other transfer pricing specialists in KPMG’s Global Transfer Pricing Services network, thus ensuring compliance with local requirements.
