ASML’s Corporate Tax Affairs and Export Control team (hereinafter “ASML Tax”) currently includes 29 tax, customs and export control professionals residing in the Netherlands based worldwide HQ (16), the Hong Kong based regional HQ for Asia (7) and the US based regional HQ for US (5). ASML Tax is responsible for ASML’s fiscal, customs and export control affairs in all jurisdictions ASML operates in. Tax compliancy is the responsibility of Tax Support, which is reporting into the Finance Department and with a (strong) dotted line into ASML Tax. Like ASML Tax, Tax Support is regionally organized, with a Tax Support team located in the Veldhoven office. ASML Tax is accountable for the tax compliancy. Per January 2019 ASML Tax has internally established its Global Transfer Pricing Team being worldwide accountable for all transfer pricing matters and compliancy. Again, Tax Support is responsible for the compliancy. The flat ASML organization and X-sector approach for addressing business challenges allows ASML Tax and its Global Transfer Pricing Team to closely interact with the company operations, manage tax risks and provide for tax planning ideas according to the global Tax Strategy and underlying global Transfer Pricing Policy. Having entered into many unilateral and bilateral advance pricing agreement procedures with Netherlands and foreign tax authorities, ASML Tax has successfully worked on obtaining certainty on its transfer pricing positions and enhancing relationships with local tax authorities. New developments such as BEPS Action Plan 7 and 13 are closely monitored and acted upon when needed. The Netherlands based worldwide HQ covers NL and the EMEA region including EU jurisdictions, Israel and Russia.
