Managing Transfer Pricing Risk in Brazil

Brazil, the ninth largest economy in the world, has developed a unique set of transfer pricing rules that differ from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) based approach adopted by most countries around the world. As result of this uniqueness, multinational corporations (MNCs) face a number of transfer pricing difficulties which may range from an increased burden on compliance activities to double taxation. Further, Brazilhas signed several Tax Information Exchange Agreements with foreign tax authorities (including one recently with the U.S.) that increase the exposure of MNCs to transfer pricing issues.
