The fundamental question of what constitutes an “intangible” has led to controversies in the transfer pricing
area. Further, evaluation of whether there has been an actual transfer of intangibles leads to the enquiry
of appropriate compensation for the transfer. A prolonged conflict arising from differences in treatment
of intangibles from accounting, legal and tax perspective has resulted in further conflicts. Traditionally
intangibles include patents, know-how, trademarks, franchise etc. However, evolution of transfer pricing rules
has led to debate on recognition of the relevance of other topics, such as Location Specific Advantages (LSA),
assembled workforce, group synergies. Issues surrounding marketing intangibles have also led to heightened
litigation. This session will provide an overview and analysis on the definition of intangibles along with the
support of a case study and recent judicial precedents on this topic.
