Today, the new Dutch Transfer pricing Decree was issued. This decree is dated June 14th, nr. 2022-0000139020, replaces the decree of the State Secretary of Finance of April 22, 2018, no. 2018-6865, (2018 TP decree). Among other things, this new decree focuses on recent developments that have led to changes in the OECD guidelines but also the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Important changes compared to the previous decree are:
– Significant amendment of the section 9 on financial transactions;
– Amendment of Section 6 of this Decree on Intragroup Services;
– Extension of the section on government policy to include a section on support measures from the government in response to, for example, the COVID-19 pandemic (section 2.8); and
– Textual changes to make the terminology more consistent with the terminology as used in the OECD guidelines and Dutch laws and regulations.
Particularly section 9 on financial transactions includes new guidance that is expected to impact many multinationals.
