2021 agenda highlights
Just some of the sessions you cannot afford to miss at TP Minds Africa this year:
Pillars 1 & 2 Impact on Transfer Pricing in Africa
This panel will examine the impact for corporations of the efforts by the OECD to address the tax challenges of digitalisation through the Unified Approach as set out in its Programme of Work in Pillar 1 and analyse the extent to which it will be fit for purpose in the region. Pillar 2 and the development of global minimum tax rules, will also be discussed. Will this be an effective means to prevent tax competition between countries and a race to the bottom so far as the collection of tax revenues by fiscs is concerned?
Multinationals Continued Response to COVID-19
This session shares practical experience and decisions taken by businesses in relation to their transfer pricing policies during COVID and beyond including: Changes or otherwise to policies and time frames involved; Documentation prepared to support changes; Preparations for controversy management post COVID; Approach to benchmarking for the COVID period; Experience with tax authorities regarding requests for amendments to unilateral and bilateral APAs.
HTVI and the Challenges of African Comparables
Hard-to-value Intangibles (HTVI) pose several challenges, not least in terms of establishing comparability. Intangibles are an increasingly relevant and complex topic, which has gained further visibility further to OECD’s on-going project in this area. Moreover, with the lack of comparable data in Africa. This panel will offer comment on the challenges of comparability and management of the comparability process in an adversative environment.
Latest on Intragroup Financial Transactions
Both recent OECD guidance and a number of tax cases have focused on the transfer pricing of intra-group financial transactions. In this industry panel session we will cover this topic in some detail including: Discussion of recent case law from across the globe on issues of financial transactions, but also look at the interaction of the recent OECD FTT and COVID guidelines on intragroup financing, and discuss how to benchmark transactions over periods of economic turbulence. An essential session, not to be missed.
Operational Transfer Pricing in Practice
Having the right TP model is only half the story. Ensuring the policy is and has been implemented correctly is often the more significant challenge to overcome. The effective tax rate is usually dependent on the outcomes of the transfer pricing policy being implemented across the business, but this is usually a process that the tax team cannot control – but is a key stakeholder. Data and technology are seen as the key to fixing OTP, but is technology the answer? This panel gives practical answers to your OTP issues.
