Casting an eye over the Latin American tax landscape, one finds a region emerging from flux. Still reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic and navigating out of the familiar economic headwinds faced globally, the jurisdiction is seeking stability via a widespread evolution of transfer pricing legislation.

Deloitte Chile’s Vanesa Lanciotti reports on Chile’s attempts to arrest economic and political uncertainty through advancing TP regulation and more stringent auditing. She outlines steps multinational companies should take to stay compliant in the country.

It was a similar story in Colombia, as Deloitte Colombia explains the country’s plan to balance its finances and attract foreign investment via increased TP attention. Likewise, Deloitte Peru highlights the nation’s recent efforts to demystify its TP rules for cross-border commodity deals.

Silvana Blanco of Deloitte Argentina provides an overview of Argentina’s increased focus on customs valuation and TP issues, with key lessons for multinational corporations.

The article from Deloitte Brazil focuses on the latest legislative steps taken by Brazil as it attempts to conform to international TP standards, in line with its goal of joining the OECD.

Authors from Deloitte Mexico review a host of significant Mexican tax reforms from 2022, which have led to an increased set of TP requirements for taxpayers to consider. Similarly, authors from Deloitte’s Central America offices provide key TP regulatory updates, with insights from Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama.

Finally, Copper Wolf reports on Mexico’s legislative attempts to grapple with the rising use of cryptocurrency, with potentially significant implications for both direct and indirect tax.
