OECD Advises Multinationals On Financial Transaction Pricing

In a report covering several actions under its project against tax base erosion and profit shifting by multinationals, the OECD said it was offering guidance to extend the arm’s-length principle to intragroup loans, hedging, captive insurance and other financial dealings.
