Transfer Pricing 

Polish tax regulations oblige taxpayers to establish the terms and conditions of pricing as well as other provisions of related party transactions and pricing in particular, at the arm’s length level. Violation of this rule empowers the tax authorities to estimate the arm’s length value of income and determine the proper amount of tax liability.
