The Deloitte TP Controversy Guide arrives at a time when new developments, including revisions to the 2017 OECD TP Guidelines, are rapidly creating the new normal for global disputes and litigation.

As businesses across the world continue to deal with the disruption of COVID-19, which in turn may lead to tax controversies, mitigating the risk is key going forward.

More efficient systems to handle mutual agreement procedures and advance pricing agreements will continue to have a significant impact on tax controversies on a global scale. Deloitte’s recent survey, completed by TP experts from more than 55 countries, showed that APAs remain the key tool available for dispute prevention benefitting both taxpayers and tax authorities.

Tax authorities are globally increasingly focused on taxpayers’ intangibles arrangements and TP outcomes. Financial transactions continue to be another active area of TP controversy for tax authorities. COVID-19 will also have a longer-term impact on how multinational corporations operate specifically in relation to the reporting of country-by-country data.

Other themes dominating the controversy landscape are the OECD’s pillar one and pillar two project, which aims to address the complex issues arising from digital businesses, and initiatives to improve multilateral dispute resolution procedures.

At a time of acceleration in TP controversy, there are challenges that may cause concern. Deloitte’s TP controversy teams, across the globe, are well placed to assist companies through these particular challenges.

We hope that you enjoy reading the practical insights explored in the fourth edition of the TP Controversy Guide.
