Duff & Phelps Launches Global BEPS Action 13 Transfer Pricing Documentation Tool

Duff & Phelps, the premier global valuation and corporate finance advisor, today announced that its Transfer Pricing Practice launched BEPS Central Tracker, a complimentary transfer pricing country-by-country reporting tool. Available on the firm's website, this interactive tool allows users to view, for over 90 countries, the requirements and domestic legislation status that have arisen from the OECD's Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action 13.

Country-by-country reporting requires multinational enterprises to annually report detailed information to tax authorities on items such as revenues, taxes paid, number of employees and tangible assets for each country in which they do business. In addition, enterprises must establish a mechanism by which the information can be exchanged with other tax authorities.

Updated monthly, the BEPS Central Tracker offers a global snapshot and comprehensive overview of each country's current BEPS Action 13 implementation and domestic legislation status in a user-friendly format. The BEPS Central Tracker tool also provides:

  • Reporting requirements
  • Penalties
  • Filing deadlines
  • Language requirements
  • Master and Local file requirements, if applicable

Mike Heimert, Managing Director and Global Leader of the Transfer Pricing Services practice, commented, "One of the core challenges for multinationals' tax departments that has emerged from the BEPS project is the vast differences in requirements and reporting timelines across different regions and countries. This has resulted in an overwhelming flow of updates that are extremely difficult to monitor. The BEPS Central Tracker aims to collect and present this information in an easily digestible way for our clients and the broader tax community.

As an international leader in the transfer pricing market, our clients rely on us for guidance and the most up-to-date information to substantiate accurate and successful business decisions. The BEPS Central Tracker is consistent with this objective, and we have invested considerable time and effort to align it with the evolving transfer pricing reporting needs of our clients."

BEPS Central Tracker can be accessed here.
