Draft transfer pricing regulations

The draft transfer pricing regulations include proposals for the following:

  • Guidelines for use of the “arm’s length principle” with respect to inter-company transactions following BEPS changes (as per art. 110.7 of DPR 917/1986)
  • Procedures for Italian voluntary, unilateral downward adjustments that can be claimed by Italian taxpayers following the finalization of transfer pricing assessments by a country or jurisdiction with which Italy has an income tax treaty that allows for the appropriate exchange of information (as per art. 31quater 1.c of DPR 600/1973)

Along with the draft regulations, the Ministry of Finance also published an Italian language translation of the OECD transfer pricing guidelines.
