Agreement Sharing Costs

Although the nature of these contracts is discussed, it is possible to identify at least three distinctive characteristics between the parties based on the structured structure: (i) cost-sharing agreement; (ii) intragroup service agreement; and (iii) cost-contribution agreement. The global tax benefits of the cost-sharing agreement can be assessed as follows. Die Zahlung of the Subs in Hehe von 40 Mio. The parent`s $10 million pays additional taxes in the U.S. of $0.35 x $40 million – $14 million, resulting in a tax reduction of $0.1 x 40 million for the portion, or $10 million – $14 million – $4 million for tax payments worldwide. Compare that to what would have happened if no cost-sharing agreement had come into effect before the patent was invented. The subcontractor should have paid $200 million used to the parent company in cash value, as this is the present value of the future profit of the part attributable to the patent. The parent would be liable to the IRS for 35% x $200 – $70 million for the portion`s payments, which would be offset by the reduction in the subs tax bill of $0.1 x $200 million – $20 million. As a result, corporate taxes worldwide would increase by $50 million, or $70 million, $20 million. The basic tax benefit of cost-sharing agreements is that market prices (estimated) are replaced by costs incurred. To expand this point, we assume that a company is made up of two divisions, a parent company and its subcontractor, and that these two divisions establish a cost-sharing agreement. The parent company then develops an intangible asset — say, a patent on a product that can be sold by both divisions.

In light of the cost-sharing agreement, the sub-parent must pay the parent a fraction of the cost of developing the patent, the share being determined by the relative benefits of the patent to the parent company and the money. On the other hand, if no cost-sharing agreement had been entered into, the Sous would have to license the parent company for each unit of the patented product sold by the sub-sale, the royalty corresponding to the estimated market value of the license to sell the patented product. Both the royalties paid by the party to the parent company (as part of the transfer pricing agreement) and the shared cost payment of the party to the parent company (as part of the cost-sharing agreement) constitute taxable income for the parent company and are tax deductible for subcontracting. Therefore, if the parent company exercises greater fiscal sovereignty than the money, and the cost of patent development is less than market-based royalties, the company could reduce its global tax debt by implementing a cost-sharing agreement instead of cancelling transfer prices related to the licensing requirement. Under such conditions, there are still doubts and controversies. However, if there is an effective cost-sharing agreement with the respective controls, we believe that, whether by decision of the Federal Finance Tribunal, the administration or the court, there will be the impossibility of taxation. Although these are legal contracts justified by the need to optimize costs and standardize procedures in all areas, the tax consequences of the agreements have been discussed.
