Transfer pricing reform - 14 June 2018 (On Demand)


Draft legislation has been introduced to substantially amend the transfer pricing rules in New Zealand, as part of the Government’s wider BEPS tax reform package.

The changes are intended to align the New Zealand transfer pricing rules to be more consistent with the OECD transfer pricing guidelines (in particular the changes made as part of OECD BEPS Actions 8-10) and with the Australian regime. Notably, the changes will require that transactions align with arm’s length “conditions”, will reference the OECD Guidelines (including the ability by Inland Revenue to recharacterise or ignore transactions in certain circumstances) and the taxpayer will bear the onus of proof in transfer pricing cases. Additionally a special interest rate restriction rule will apply. The new rules will apply to transactions as early as 1 July 2018 for June balance date companies.

This webinar will:

  • Go through the various changes and implications of the changes 
  • Compare with Australia’s transfer pricing rules 
  • Highlight areas that are likely to carry higher risk under this reform 
  • Illustrate with examples 
  • Outline what you need to do in preparation for these law changes 
  • Cover the transfer pricing documentation requirements and expectations in New Zealand


  • Appreciation of the proposed transfer pricing reforms
  • Gain a better understanding how these rule changes could impact your company
  • Get insight as to risk areas and what you could do to mitigate these risks
  • Understand what documentation is expected
