Seminar on “Taxation of Multinational Enterprises – Transfer Pricing”
Montevideo, Uruguay / 19–21 November 2012
From 19 – 21 november 2012, the International Tax Compact (ITC) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service Uruguay (DGI), the Inter American Center for Tax Administrations (CIAT), the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the German-Uruguayan Chamber of Commerce realized the Regional Exchange Seminar “Taxation of Multinational Enterprises – Transfer Pricing” in Montevideo.
The event brought together delegations from 8 Latin American countries including Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Moreover, the event was attended from transfer pricing experts from Spain who are engaged in this regional initiative for the elaboration of a Latin American database on transfer pricing.
While the first day of the event focused on the exchange of experiences and best practices of the present delegations regarding the control of transfer pricing abuse by multinational companies, the second and third day established a working group for the elaboration of a Latin American data base for the control of multinational companies. The lack of comparable information on the international activities of those companies makes it difficult for tax administrations in the region to control the misuse of transfer pricing for tax evasion.
The seminar forms part of an initiative by CIAT, ITC and GIZ to strengthen the capacities of South American tax administrations with respect to international taxation.
