Tackling Transfer Pricing in Singapore & Malaysia


Malaysia published its new transfer pricing (TP) rules in May and these are certainly creating a buzz on the ground, especially with many companies having related party transactions between both sides of the Causeway.  

From the additional schedules required to the tightening of the “arm’s length range”, there is certainly quite a handful to be updated on. More importantly, how do these compare with Singapore’s and as a tax professional, what are the key factors you need to note, especially for those managing tax matters in the region?  

In association with SCTP, Adriana Calderon, Director at Transfer Pricing Solutions Asia and Malaysia and Hong Chuan Tan, Director of Transfer Pricing Solutions Malaysia, facilitated a webinar explaining and reviewing the changes offering their practical insights on what to note and how to better manage TP on both sides of the causeway.
