Abstract

This study evaluates the implementation of capacity adjustment using the transactional net margin method (TNMM) on two appeal decisions of transfer pricing dispute based on the tax consultant’s point of view. Capacity adjustment is one of the techniques described in the OECD transfer pricing guidelines (OECD TPG) for transfer pricing analysis of companies that have not yet reached their optimal production capacity. However, in practice there are differences in interpretation between the Indonesian tax authorities and the OECD TPG. The study uses a qualitative approach which consists of document analysis of the two appeal decisions and semi-structured interviews. Based on the results of the study, the implementation of capacity adjustment requires rational commercial reasons and the basis for proper calculations.
