How India is striving to attract your company's investment through transfer pricing measures

Following on from the Indian budget last month and various significant developments on the disputes scene, TPWeek thinks it is a good time to put together a Special Focus, bringing together its most recent reports.

The Indian government is keen to promote a more investor-friendly environment in relation to corporate tax and, in particular, transfer pricing. Hence, the conclusion of bilateral APA agreements with the US and Japan, and rulings in favour of the taxpayer in the Vodafone and Watson Pharma.

TPWeek has reported on the budget, which taxpayers felt was "disappointing" for transfer pricing issues, the need for clarification on indirect share transfers, disputes related to share transfers and analyses of the APA agreements.
