Transfer Pricing Masterclass on Intra-group Services

This event has passed. Stay tuned for more events update

27 August 2018, 8:00AM - 1:00PM, MYT Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

Malaysians are now living in a new era since the Pakatan Harapan Coalition won GE14 on 9th May 2018. We have a new Government which, amongst others, emphasizes on the rule of law. In line with this, it is our understanding that tax audits will continue to be a major strategy of the Inland Revenue Board (“IRB”) as they strive to ensure that taxpayers comply with the relevant tax rules.

Specifically on transfer pricing, a major focus area in almost all tax audits carried out by the IRB is in relation to “intra-group services”. Based on our experience, businesses are still unfamiliar with the requirements involved to ensure transfer pricing compliance and meeting the IRB’s expectations. To help businesses, we have put together a Masterclass workshop to help you grapple with the associated complexities.

Bonus session with our experts on the implications of Service Taxon Intra-Group Services.


Course objectives

  • In this specially designed masterclass workshop, we will cover the following:
  • What are the different types of intra-group services?
  • How do you characterize intra-group services?
  • How do you describe the nature of services rendered and benefits received?
  • What is the typical basis of charge? We will focus the discussion on “cost plus” methodology.
  • What costs are chargeable?  
  • What are the different types of allocation keys?  How to select an appropriate allocation key?
  • Is a mark-up required?  If yes, how do I determine the appropriate rate? Should a mark-up be imposed on “pass through” or “third party” costs?
  • What source documents should be kept for tax audit purposes?
  • Sharing of practical experiences from our handling of transfer pricing audits.
