On 23 October 2023, the Federal Tax Authority (FTA) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) issued a comprehensive Transfer Pricing (TP) Guide (CTGTP1) herein after referred to as “TP Guide”, bringing much-needed clarity for businesses on the application of the arm’s length principle.  

The TP Guide provides insights into the FTA’s interpretation of TP regulations under the Corporate Tax Law. It also includes numerous examples to clarify the complexities of TP.

In light of this, our team of TP experts held a 60-minute webinar to delve deeper into intricacies of the TP Guide. The webinar session covered a wide range of topics, including:

  • Approach to functional analyses;
  • Considerations to benchmarking studies;
  • TP audits and adjustments;
  • Additional TP documentation and compliance requirements; and
  • Special topics including intangibles, business restructuring, etc.
