Provisions under new article 76A of Mexico’s tax law reflect certain items of the OECD’s base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) project—in particular expanded transfer pricing disclosure requirements that will apply for the 2016 tax year.
The Mexican government’s 2016 federal budget, presented 8 September 2015, included proposals for expanded transfer pricing disclosure requirements. In particular, certain taxpayers (as identified pursuant to Article 32-H) that engage in transactions with related parties, would be required to submit to the tax authorities certain country-by-country information about the taxation of their business transactions.
The expanded transfer pricing disclosure requirements were enacted as part of the 2016 federal tax reform legislation. Read a 2015 report (Spanish) prepared by the KPMG member firm in Mexico: Reforma Fiscal 2016
