The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development releases guidance on intangibles

Under this definition, location-specific characteristics and workforce in place are not considered intangibles, because they are not capable of being owned or controlled; rather, they should be considered comparability factors to be taken into account in a transfer pricing analysis. The revisions to Chapter I issued September 16 as part of the release of Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) deliverables provide important guidance on location-specific characteristics, workforce-in-place, and synergy benefits as comparability factors.
