Recent studies show that the African continent is attracting a growing amount of investments from foreign multinational enterprises. BonelliErede and International Tax Review will provide an overview of the main transfer pricing issues to consider for structuring investments into selected countries.

The economic boom in the African continent is occurring during an epoch of changes in the international taxation landscape, triggered by the outcome of the BEPS Project. Within this context, transfer pricing legislations plays an important role, but African tax administrations have identified transfer pricing as one of the most significant risks to their tax base.

By governing the allocation of profits between entities of the same MNE groups, transfer pricing represents one of the main tools through which profits deriving from business investments may be shifted across different jurisdictions. It is, therefore, not surprising that the BEPS Project has led to a significant update of the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines (TPG).

BonelliErede is partnering with International Tax Review to present a webinar on the main transfer pricing issues to consider when structuring investments into Egypt and Ethiopia. Experts will discuss the legal framework and transfer pricing rules in these countries, the applicable transfer pricing methods and international standards and the available tools available to MNEs to manage their transfer pricing risks.

The discussion, moderated by Anjana Haines, editor of International Tax Review and led by Stefano Simontacchi, managing partner at BonelliErede in Milan, will be broadcast live at 3.00 pm GMT on Wednesday April 19 2017. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
