An amendment to Chile’s customs rules allows the value of imported goods to be determined according to the valuation established by an advance pricing agreement (APA) as granted under the transfer pricing measures.
Taxpayers who enter into transactions with foreign related parties may apply for an APA in order to establish the fair market value (market price) of the transaction or imported merchandise. To harmonize the customs regulations with the transfer pricing measures, the customs rules have been amended so that the transaction value, as established and approved pursuant to an APA, also applies for customs purposes.

The SII updated the list of countries and jurisdictions that are considered to have a “preferential tax regime” and removed Bolivia and Panama from the list.
Taxpayers must file Form 1907 (Spanish) [PDF 258 KB] if during the tax year, they have engaged in transactions with parties that are domiciled, have residency or are established or incorporated in a territory or jurisdiction that is considered to have a “preferential tax regime” pursuant to the list prepared by the Chilean tax authorities. The list includes countries or jurisdictions that are not members of the OECD and that do not comply with standards of transparency and exchange of tax information. The list serves, for example, to determine a party’s transfer pricing obligations, and requires additional withholding (at a rate of 30% for royalties and 20% for technical services) on payments made to entities located in countries on the list.
