Let's Talk TP BIR’s transfer pricing audit history
In our previous article “BIR transfer pricing audits - the next wave?”, we have looked into Revenue Audit Memorandum Order (RAMO) No. 1-19 which is the current regulation set by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) when it comes to Transfer Pricing (TP) audits.

If transfer pricing documentation (TPD) were a movie, the benchmarking analysis would be the plot. A well-crafted plot bears weight on the quality of a movie as much as a well-prepared benchmarking analysis bears weight on the quality of a TPD.

As the days go by and we take the first step in faith towards the new year, we hope everyone can reflect and truly say that it was indeed a year of intense growth. Since I am a believer that the new year is neither an end nor a beginning but a going-on, I wish to take everyone back and recall the previous Let’s Talk Transfer Pricing (TP) articles that were published throughout the year so we may welcome 2023 with proper guidance.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Transfer Pricing Guidelines provide five methodologies that are widely used and accepted by almost all tax authorities in determining transfer prices. These include three traditional transaction methods – comparable uncontrolled price (CUP) method, resale price method (RPM), and cost-plus method (CPM); and two transactional profit methods – transactional net margin method (TNMM) and profit split method (PSM).
