Intercompany Movement of Intangibles

Issue: Tax auditors monitor the intercompany, cross-border movement of intangibles to flag potential transfer pricing compliance issues.

Solution: ktMINE tracks and reports the cross-border movement of intangibles for all companies.

Implication: Ignoring this information can leave a professional unprepared, open to litigation and unable to appropriately document the ownership of a company’s intangibles.

Royalty Rates & Market Rates

Issue:  Under recent case law and the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Guidelines, the Comparable Uncontrolled Transaction (CUT) / Comparable Uncontrolled Pricing (CUP) method remains the preferred approach to benchmark transactions.

Solution: ktMINE offers millions of data points to assess the availability of comparable transactions to support intercompany analyses.

Implication: Failing to search for comparable royalty rates or market rates can negatively impact the reliability of transfer pricing analyses and cause an increase in potential tax adjustments.

Independent Party Transaction Structures

Issue: As outlined in the BEPS Guidelines, it is no longer sufficient to only benchmark the actual price of a transaction. Practitioners must also research the structure of comparable independent party transactions.

Solution: ktMINE provides over a hundred thousand independent party deal structures for supporting transfer pricing analyses.

Implication: Inadequately reviewing independent party transactions can leave tax positions vulnerable to audits.

Use Cases

  • Determining the arm’s length pricing for comparable transactions
  • Evaluating factors of comparability
  • Providing evidence for how independent parties would structure transactions involving intangibles
  • Inventorying intangibles under analysis
  • Providing a starting point in determining economic ownership
