Singapore Announces New Transfer Pricing Requirements

The Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) has announced that taxpayers must report certain details of related party transactions (RPT) if the value of RPT in the audited accounts for the financial year exceeds S$15 million (US$10.8 million).

The Form for Reporting Related Party Transactions should be submitted together with the submission of Form C. The RPT data will help IRAS in assessing transfer pricing risks and selecting appropriate cases for transfer pricing consultation.

The value of RPT is the sum of all RPT items in the Income Statement and the year-end balances of loans and non-trade amounts.

Transfer pricing consultation allows IRAS to assess taxpayers' compliance with the transfer pricing guidelines and identify areas in which IRAS can advise taxpayers on good practices in transfer pricing.
