Joint SCTP - STEP Singapore Webinar
"Transfer Pricing Issues for Trustees, Family Offices and Fund Managers"
- A practical walkthrough of key tax and transfer pricing issues for trust and wealth management practitioners       

About this Webinar

Over the years, Singapore has continued to develop as a choice location for investment management and wealth management. Fund managers and fund vehicles have been moving ‘onshore’ into Singapore, driven by developments such as the introduction of the Singapore VCC. The number of family offices in Singapore have continued to multiply. The use of a trust (often with a private trust company) have also continued to grow in popularity.

These structures give rise to tax and transfer pricing considerations. Transfer pricing issues have emerged amidst such developments and heralded in a whole new era where we now see an evolved global tax landscape that is still very much changing. COVID-19 layered upon this, an extra dimension of complexity. The issues of pricing of services and which method to use are just two issues covering the tip of iceberg on tax and transfer pricing risks management.

STEP Singapore and the Singapore Chartered Tax Professionals (SCTP) are joining hands to bring you insights on what tax authorities are looking out for and highlighting areas that matter for trustees and family structures. Cut through the complexities using various scenarios and gain insights on the impact of tax and transfer pricing may have on trustees, family offices and fund managers.

  • Learn about the key aspects of transfer pricing for your industry.
  • Learn how to manage the tax and transfer pricing risk associate with common investment structures.
  • Learn why transfer pricing is a key focus area of tax authorities around the world. Importantly, we will consider the application of Singapore’s transfer pricing rules; both generally and to the common transactions that we see in practice.
