Questions asked During the Session:
1. HO in China gives loans to the Project Office in India. Will this be covered under TP?
2. For CUP, It is almost impossible to get the External Comparable Data of the 3rd Party as no one will share its confidential financials. So, only Internal Comparable Data of the AE can be compared.
3. Is CUP the most preferable method as per OECD?
4. While checking TP of 2020, Whether comparable data of 2019 of other co can be used? As comparable data of same year may not be available while doing an audit for 2020
5. If there is no similar industry, what is the best method
6. If Raw material is supplied by Global Supplier in India whereby Contract with the supplier is negotiated by holding company Outside India, then such supplier will be considered as AE
7. The COVID disruption is predominantly in FY 2020-21. So the TP exercise of FY 2020-21 would go with the tested parties' FY 2019-20 in the normal course. So the TP exercise of FY 2021-22 would really be the impactful year from the angle of comparatives. Correct?
8. Sir, why do we generally test the party which has a low-risk profile? (XA over XB))
