Cost Sharing Agreement Rules

In that judgment, it should be pointed out that, in the case of cost-sharing as a result of the appointment of a third party service provider by the central undertaking, such a situation would not be an easy reimbursement and would lead to the taxation of the transfer sent abroad.

Notwithstanding the restrictions on adjustments set out in paragraph (f) (3) (iv) of this Section, adjustments to the share of costs on the basis of an unreliable projection may only be made among uncontrolled participants from abroad, provided that the difference between actual and expected benefits results in a substantial reduction in U.S. tax. `In view of the foregoing, in a contract for the apportionment of costs and expenses signed between undertakings of the same economic group in which residents and non-residents of the country participate, the activities made available to the resident legal person by a non-resident legal person must be registered with Siscoserv where the activity in question is provided for by NBS.
