The value of related-party transactions separated by (i) domestic versus overseas, (ii) income versus expenses, and (iii) more detailed expenses classified based on nature (i.e. expenses for purchasing raw materials/goods, land, building and equipment, including royalties, management/technical service /commission fees, interest expenses and other expenses);
  3. Some key yes/no questions on (i) responsibility on consolidated financial information, (ii) business restructuring between related parties and (iii) sale/distribution/transfer of intangible assets between related parties.

The tax officer may request the TP documents and related supporting details for inspection within 5 years after the submission of the annual return.
