Determining the length price of an arm is a complex task and depends to a large extent on the specific facts and circumstances in the cash-pooling agreement. In order to apply the arm length principle to cash transactions, consideration should be given to the functions, assets and risks of each party to the agreement and then the most appropriate transfer pricing method should be chosen. How cash pool services should be distributed among the different participants. Since the facts and circumstances (such as the solvency of a participating company) may change during the year, it may be recommended to prepare a cash-pooling policy. In this document, how the transfer pricing method used within the group works and how the group can assuring how different credit ratings can be tested on a regular basis. Second, there are physical cash pools, also known as Cinderella or one-day credits for its quality, that the credit and credit balance is swept daily to an account in order to achieve the desired goal balance. In this category, there is also zero balance and target balancing. Zero clearing simply means that there is no balance on the account each business day, while clearing the objectives would have the accounts with a predetermined balance. Below are ten important reflections that will help structure cash-pooling agreements in accordance with the principle of arm length. In addition, creditors of subsidiaries may be affected for the above reasons if they see an increasing risk of recovering their credits, when the cash-pooling system recovers the balance of the debtor`s subsidiary. Faced with these challenges, these incumbent shareholders and creditors may challenge certain contractual agreements (for example. B, the approval of annual accounts, the exercise of the right to information on the cash pooling contract or the challenge to the conclusion of the contract established by the directors).
Physical cash pool In a physical cash pool, cash is paid regularly (daily, weekly or monthly) from the bank account of each company in the group to the bank account of a cash pool manager. The cash pool manager will own the cash and each deposit to a third-party bank will be converted into a loan to the cash leader in the group. While the group`s resources are allocated to the funds made available by the Bank (for example. B to determine the applicable interest rate), the reports are not settled by the Bank`s funds against funds from group entities. In other words, since only funds borrowed by the bank fall within the scope, the calculation of lines of credit not used by banks is not influenced by the amount of funds in the cash pool made available by cash pool participants. However, all funds of entities in the group are guarantees (i.e. cash guarantees) and must be reported to AnaCredit as protection of funds made available to the group by the bank.
