Research background: The continuing trend of globalization and interconnection of national economics is reviling many opportunities as well as threats arising from this development. The transfer pricing is one of these issues as a legal framework to adjust the tax base. But on the other hand, this issue also affects other important areas and reveals its risks. There is focused on the transfer pricing and its legal framework in these presented papers as recent years have indicated that there is a huge necessity to regulate and legislatively define the transfer pricing on the part of the state. And although we can take the opinion that this is a modern issue, we have been encountering this problem since 1915 and since this time it is gaining in its importance.
Purpose of the article: We can distinguish two different parties. On the one hand, there is a company (most of the time its multinational company) with its goal to achieve the best possible efficiency also by paying the lowest possible taxes. On the other hand, we recognize the state with his aim of optimal tax policy allowing it to maximize the amount of collected taxes, i. e. it should be in the best interest of the state to define the transfer pricing precisely to prevent possible tax evasion.
Methods: The main method used in the article is literature research and analysis of the law documents.
Findings & Value added: The aim of this article is to identify the basic legislative guidelines in the field of transfer pricing in the international level as well as in the level of the Slovak republic.
Key words: transfer pricing / tax / company / the Slovak republic
