Canada’s Transfer Pricing legislation was introduced almost 20 years ago and has always been a significant area of focus for the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Topics such as business restructuring and cross border interest rates and guarantee fees have evolved globally with a measure of influence from developments in Canada. The CRA was a very active participant and supporter of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiatives of the OECD countries and we continue to see an evolving landscape of Transfer Pricing developments in Canada.
