New Dutch Transfer Pricing Decree
The new Dutch Transfer Pricing Decree was published on July 1, 2022. The new decree dated June 14, 2022 no. 2022-0000139020, replaces the decree dated April 22, 2018, no. 2018-6865. The new decree focuses on recent developments that have resulted in changes to the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines but also addresses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Important changes compared to the previous decree are:
– Section 9 on Financial Transactions has been significantly amended
– Section 6 on Intragroup Services has been amended
– Section 2 on Government Policy now includes a section on government support measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic (section 2.8)
– Textual changes to make the terminology more consistent with the terminology used in the OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines and Dutch laws and regulations.
In particular, Section 9 on Financial Transactions includes new guidance that is expected to impact many multinationals.
