KPMG professionals help our clients in the structuring of intra-group transactions in Ukraine and abroad

 

On 15 July 2015 the Verkhovna Rada adopted the Law of Ukraine No. 609-VIII ‘On Amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine to Improve Transfer Pricing’ (hereinafter – the Law No. 609). Below you will find the key information about the changes in the transfer pricing rules and their impact on Ukrainian business.

We help companies reduce the risks associated with transfer pricing by providing the following services:

  • preparation of transfer pricing documentation;
  • filling a Report on controlled transactions;
  • development of transfer pricing policy;
  • conclusion of a pricing agreement with the Ukrainian tax authoritiesю.


The list of controlled transactions has been updated

New transfer pricing rules introduce a slightly modified list of controlled transactions previously set out in the Transfer Pricing Law.

Currently such business transactions carried out by Ukrainian taxpayers are considered to be controlled:

  • transactions with related non-resident parties;
  • foreign economic operations for the sale of goods through non-resident commission agents, transactions with non-residents (both with related and unrelated entities) registered in the jurisdiction included in the list, which is published by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, in particular:
    • in a state (on a territory) where the tax rate is by 5 or more percentage points lower than in Ukraine;
    • in a state that does not disclose information on the ownership structure of legal entities to the public;
    • in a state that Ukraine has not signed international agreements with provisions on the exchange of information with.

 

Such transactions are considered to be controlled if the following conditions are met at the same time:

  • the taxpayer’s annual income from any activity defined by accounting rules is more than 50 million UAH (excluding indirect taxes) for the relevant taxation (fiscal) year;
  • the amount of such taxpayer's transactions with each counterparty defined by accounting rules is more than 50 million UAH (excluding indirect taxes) for the relevant taxation (fiscal) year.
 

What should taxpayers do?

Ukrainian taxpayers who carried out controlled transactions are required to:

  • prepare and submit a Report on controlled transactions before May 1 of the year following the taxation (fiscal) year;
  • prepare and keep transfer pricing documentation on separate controlled transactions and provide it upon request of the tax authorities of Ukraine.


What are the consequences of violating the transfer pricing rules?

  • Failure to submit a report on controlled transactions by May 1 results in a fine in the amount of 300 minimum wages (UAH 365 400 as of 2015);
  • undeclared controlled transactions in the Report on controlled transactions result in a fine of 1% of the controlled transaction amount (but not more than 300 minimum wages for all undeclared controlled transactions);
  • failure to submit transfer pricing documentation entails a fine of 3% of the controlled transaction amount (but not more than 200 minimum wages for all undeclared controlled transactions).
