According to the Austrian contribution regarding intra-group financing in Austria, alongside the interest rate, a particular strong focus is placed by the tax authorities on whether the debt instrument might be re-qualified into “hidden equity”.

Additionally, based on the recent decision of the Austrian Financial Court, liability commissions must be charged from the start of the loan agreement, reductions in the Transfer Pricing with respect to deliveries of goods must be credibly demonstrated and the arm's length interest must be charged for supplier credits.
