In India, there are considerable Transfer pricing regulations in place according to which an arm's length standard is the criteria for judgment.
Transfer pricing is simply the act of pricing of goods and services or intangibles when the same is given for use or consumption to a related party. It can be either Market-based, i.e. equivalent to what is being charged in the outside market for similar goods, or it can be non-market based. Importantly, two-thirds of the managers say their transfer pricing is non-market based.
The Indian landscape is also witnessing change, with safe harbor rules and advance pricing arrangements on the cards and MAP evolving as an alternate dispute resolution mechanism. The Transfer pricing Regulations were introduced in India vide the Finance Act, 2001 by substitution of the existing 92 and introduction of new sections 92A to 92F in the Income Tax Act and relevant rules 10A to 10E in the Income Tax Rules, 1962.
