Cover story on post-import Transfer Pricing adjustments and their acceptance to Customs in India
India is a signatory to the WTO Agreement on Customs Valuation (ACV) that recognises that the price between related parties is not, in and of itself, reason to question the pricing between those parties, related-party transactions and post-importation adjustments. Yet, Customs authorities in the country continue to question importers, who might have imported initially at a certain price from another overseas group entity but subsequently imported another consignment of similar goods at a lower price.
The Hamamatsu Judgment - This case is particularly significant from a customs and transfer pricing point of view, as Hamamatsu's situation is a common one in today's global economy. The case concerns overlap between retrospective transfer pricing adjustments and the customs valuation of imported goods.
