To protect tax revenues, Transfer Pricing rules are used more and more by the judicial authorities. Although these rules are fairly new, they spread quickly. Because countries that do not have a regulation on Transfer Pricing are subject to tax loss compared to other countries. In this context, transfer pricing has recently become a very important issue for both taxpayers and tax authorities. With the new Corporate Tax Law published in the Official Gazette dated 21 June 2006 and numbered 26205, Transfer Pricing methods have been put into practice in our country starting from 01.01.2007.
Failures in applying these methods both create a double taxation problem and bring serious tax penalties.
According to our transfer pricing legislation, there are two types of documentation requirements on the subject. The first of these is the Transfer Pricing Form, which must be submitted to the tax office attached to the annual corporate tax return; the other is the annual Transfer Pricing Report, which must be available from the date the declaration is filed. The purpose of the documentation/reporting is to prove that the taxpayers have made the said transactions in line with the arm’s length principle by preparing the information and documents showing the detailed calculations and analyses about the transfer pricing methods they use in their transactions with their related parties.
A comprehensive definition of a related party has been made in our transfer pricing legislation, and no criteria regarding capital or voting rights or dividend rights have been set in the determination of the related party. In addition, no threshold has been determined for the transaction amount in the documentation of transactions with related parties.
For these reasons, taxpayers are required to include all information about their related persons and transactions in the Transfer Pricing Form, and to explain and analyze all of their related transactions, for which they are responsible for preparing a report, in the Transfer Pricing Report.
