The advancements of global trade and the increasing use of tax efficient business restructuring by companies has led to tax authorities scrutinising company transactions (both on an inter and intra-firm basis) on a scale never seen before. Singapore and Hong Kong have become regional hub centres for all sectors of industry to establish headquarter operations from which to manage the region.
The links between Singapore and Malaysia are plenty. Singaporean companies are increasingly expanding their operations into Malaysia, attracted by relatively cheaper labour and land factors. Companies have expanded operations into the Johor corridor and other parts of Malaysia, while retaining core functions in Singapore.
The establishment of subsidiaries in and around the region, including Malaysia, is often underpinned by an element of tax efficiency which has led to transfer pricing (i.e., the pricing of related party transactions) a key concept that finance, treasury and operations professionals have to pay an increasing attention to.
This clinic provides overview of recent transfer pricing developments in Malaysia, as well as shares a practical approach for Malaysian taxpayers to manage their transfer pricing obligations in Malaysia.
Who Should Attend?
General Managers, Tax Directors and Managers, Finance Directors and Managers, Accountants, and anyone else who have responsibilities on setting transfer prices or preparing documentation for transfer pricing purposes.
