d. The Assessee does not agree with the proposed revision. Does the country have a pre-price program (APA)? If so, is the program widespread? Are there unilateral, bilateral and multilateral APAs? A preferential price agreement or preferential pricing agreement (APA) is an agreement between at least two states parties to a tax agreement. Pre-price agreements are negotiated by the competent authorities of each of the countries concerned. The competent authorities agree on the validity of the APA. An APA is established for a specified period of time and its legal effects extend only up to the validity of the APA. The duration of validity varies from case to case and depends, for example, on factors such as the nature of the transactions involved and the industry. The main advantages of ASAs are minimizing transfer pricing disputes, ensuring legal certainty and easing the calculation of taxes. 1.

There is a change in the law or facts that affect the agreement.
2. Termination of contract: The contract may be terminated by the House in the following circumstances: the disadvantage of an APA is total transparency and the relatively long time for the conclusion in relation to a transfer pricing study.
