The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has announced that it is undertaking a review of the advance pricing arrangement program in 2022, which will include an extensive consultation with taxpayers and advisors.
We are reviewing the advance pricing arrangement program
The advance pricing arrangement (APA) program provides a valuable service delivering certainty on your dealings with international related parties.
We remain committed to the APA service and always look for opportunities to improve, ensuring it aligns with our broader objectives and market guidance. As such, we will be undertaking a review of the program in 2022, primarily to focus on:
As part of the review, we will consider how to tailor the APA process to better align to risk and taxpayer behavioural indicators.
We already have a streamlined APA product for early engagement requests from the medium and emerging market, where a combined triage and APA review workshop is used with less intense work during the APA Application stage.
We are now exploring how to similarly tailor the APA experience across the full spectrum of potential risks encountered during an APA engagement.
The review will commence in early 2022. We expect to consult extensively with taxpayers and advisors as part of the process to understand:
We will notify you when consultation opens.
We’re here to answer any questions you have about the Orbitax products and services.
We’re committed to providing high value, low cost tax research and management solutions.
