    New study: Measuring the impact on domestic e-retail from UPU terminal dues

    Finland and Sweden are members of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), a UN agency. The UPU international agreements include rules capping the cross-border postal rates (terminal dues) that the Finnish and Swedish post can charge the foreign sending postal company for inbound mail.

    In this study, we estimate what the difference between domestic shipment fees and terminal dues means for domestic e-retailers in Finland and Sweden for realistic cases of e-commerce merchandise. We find that in many cases, the terminal dues disadvantage is even greater than the e-retailer’s profit margin contribution expected from that item type.

    Tomorrow, Dr Bruno Basalisco presents the results at an event in Helsinki organised by retail association Kaupan Liitto.

    Is the new OECD guidance on marketing intangibles clear?

    This week, our Stockholm office submitted its comments to the OECD's Public Consultation Document "Addressing the Tax Challenges of the Digitalisation of the Economy".

    The attribution of non-routine intangible return to the market jurisdictions, as proposed in the Marketing Intangible Proposal, may represent a profit shifting without any link to the value creation process in MNE groups, to the detriment of the jurisdiction actively involved in the DEMPE of intangible assets.
