Updated! EY COVID-19 Response Tracker | Transfer Pricing

The COVID-19 pandemic is intensifying the uncertain environment for transfer pricing. Many jurisdictions are therefore adopting new measures designed to help taxpayers meet their compliance-related obligations. These include postponing deadlines for transfer pricing declarations, forms and filings, including Country-by-Country (CbC) notification and CbC Report filing deadlines.

At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting existing tax authority processes, including the issuance of rulings, advance pricing agreements (APAs) and the Mutual Agreement Procedure (MAP). When coupled with the temporary suspension of transfer pricing-specific audits and litigation, this all adds up to the need for many multinational groups to adapt group transfer pricing policy and operations to facilitate intragroup liquidity, manage risk, and ensure their global compliance obligations are met.

A significantly expanded and updated version of the Transfer Pricing COVID-19 Tracker is now available. The Tracker has been extended to now incorporate 53 jurisdictions, with 19 receiving updates since the previous edition. 

We have also developed additional trackers to help you follow the impacts on the pandemic on tax. These include:

Force Majeure | Global Mobility | Global Trade Considerations | Immigration Policy | Labor and Employment Law | Tax Controversy | US State and Local Taxes

EY Tax professionals are updating these trackers regularly as the situation continues to develop.
