Whether you need to prepare a benchmarking study when entering into a related party transaction depends on the country's transfer
pricing regulations and the specifics of the transaction.
In general, benchmarking studies are used to demonstrate that related party transactions are conducted on an arm's length basis, meaning that they are comparable to those that would have taken place between independent parties under similar circumstances. If the transaction is subject to transfer pricing regulations, the tax authorities will request a benchmarking study as part of the transfer pricing documentation during an audit.
For good transfer pricing governance, it is recommended to keep appropriate documentation and records to support the arm's length nature of your transactions, in case of any future scrutiny by the tax authorities. A benchmark study as part of the transfer pricing documentation is part best practices to support your transfer pricing position and manage your transfer pricing risk.
