Indian tax laws require an annual assessment of whether companies with overseas group entities meet the “arm’s length” requirement in their transactions (sales, purchases, services being provided, loans, management fee, royalty payments). Regulations require both a detailed (TP) study by the company and a TP audit report by an external auditor. Unicus provides assistance in following areas –
