Brazil publishes new Transfer Pricing Rules
On September 29, 2023, the Brazilian Official Gazette (DOU) published Normative Instruction RFB 2.161/23, which regulates Brazil’s new transfer pricing rules as set forth in Law 14.596/23.
Important: the Normative Instruction extends the deadline for taxpayers to elect early adoption of the OECD TP guidelines to December 31, 2023. This means that MNEs operating in Brazil still have time to analyze the optimal transfer pricing strategy option for FY 2023. Our expert team is here to help you during this crucial transition period.

Ecuador: amounts required for the filing of the Transfer Pricing Report
The Ecuadorean tax authorities, through Resolution No. NAC-DGERCGC23-00000025, implemented several significant modifications regarding transfer pricing.
Taxpayers liable for income tax who are not exempt from complying with the transfer pricing regime and who in the same tax period have carried out transactions with related parties for an accumulated amount exceeding three million U.S. dollars (USD 3,000,000), must file the Annex of Transactions with Related Parties. When such amount exceeds ten million U.S. dollars (USD 10,000,000), these taxpayers must file, in addition to the Annex of Related Party Transactions, the Comprehensive Transfer Pricing Report.

OECD/G20: The Multilateral Convention to Implement Amount A of Pillar One
The OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework has introduced “The Multilateral Convention to Implement Amount A of Pillar One”, designed to tackle the tax challenges brought about by globalization and digitalization. This document is the result of extensive collaboration involving over 140 countries. The key points of this document include:
- Establishing a framework for the reallocation of taxing rights to market jurisdictions for highly profitable multinational enterprises, regardless of their physical presence.
- Ensuring the relief from double taxation due to this reallocation.
- Providing a mechanism for dispute prevention and resolution concerning tax certainty for qualifying multinational enterprises.
- Repealing and coordinating the preferential treatment of digital service taxes and similar measures to maintain stability in the international tax system.
- Incorporating design features to address unique circumstances of developing economies.
