The Guidelines provide guidance on the local file, transfer pricing rules, and transfer pricing legislation. The Guidelines have been developed to ensure that transfer pricing is conducted in line with the arm’s length principle, a fundamental principle of international taxation, and to help minimize disputes between tax administrations. The Guidelines provide a framework for analyzing and documenting related party transactions, as well as for establishing transfer pricing policies and procedures for multinational enterprises. Based on Article 33 of the Cyprus Income Tax Law, Cyprus adopts OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines.
