TPG2022 Chapter VI paragraph 6.154

« | »

Where valuation techniques are utilised in a transfer pricing analysis involving the transfer of intangibles or rights in intangibles, it is necessary to apply such techniques in a manner that is consistent with the arm’s length principle and the principles of these Guidelines. In particular, due regard should be given to the principles contained in Chapters I – III. Principles related to realistically available options, economically relevant characteristics including assumption of risk (see Section D. 1 of Chapter I) and aggregation of transactions (see paragraphs 3.9 to 3.12) apply fully to situations where valuation techniques are utilised in a transfer pricing analysis. Furthermore, the rules of these Guidelines on selection of transfer pricing methods apply in determining when such techniques should be used (see paragraphs 2.1 to 2.12). The principles of Sections A, B, C, and D. 1 of this chapter also apply where use of valuation techniques is considered.
