BDO Free CPE Webinars

Participants of the free live webinar will be eligible for 1 CPE credit.


Used as a tax optimization mechanism, intercompany financing in Germany has seen increased use and as a result, increased scrutiny over the last few years. In 2021, the German Ministry of Finance published a decree regarding transfer pricing, including provisions on intercompany financing. Likewise, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) also released guidelines in 2022 on intercompany financing and specifically its impact on existing loans and cash pools.
Learning Objectives

  • Describe the new OECD guidelines, the new decrees from the German Ministry of Finance and the new case law of the Federal Finance Court, regarding whether a standalone rating is necessary in each individual case.1
  • Discuss the impact for new and existing U.S. companies with operations in Germany.2
  • Identify possible solutions and next steps to justify intercompany interest rates (e.g. via rating analyses).
