Thursday, 18 February 2021 | Transfer pricing aspects of COVID-19: OECD Guidance and practical examples (2:30 pm BST)

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose challenges for businesses around the globe, many multinational enterprises (MNEs) have found their supply chains heavily disrupted and have experienced a significant reduction in consumer demand.

In December 2020, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) issued a guidance on transfer pricing implications of the COVID-19 pandemic (OECD Guidance). While some taxpayers have been proactive in amending their transfer pricing policies, others are still considering whether and how to implement this guidance. 

Join us on Thursday, 18 February, where EY will host a global webcast focusing on the insights of the recent OECD Guidance and practical examples. These examples will address how taxpayers align their operating models and transfer pricing policies with the new and evolving environment of the pandemic.

In this webcast, hear from EY transfer pricing professionals about the recent OECD Guidance as well as practical examples on how MNEs are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.    

An EY panel moderated by Ronald van den Brekel, EY Global Transfer Pricing Market and Innovation Leader, will discuss topics, including:

  • Insights into the OECD Guidance on transfer pricing implications of the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Recent practical examples of EY International Tax and Transaction Services practice, including application of the OECD Guidance—examples will cover:

    • Crisis management fees

    • “Extraordinary expenses” incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic

    • Financial transactions transfer pricing

  • COVID-19 around the globe: an overview of local tax authorities’ responses and experiences

We hope you will be able to join us.
