Comparable Uncontrolled Price Method (CUP)

Come più approfonditamente illustrato nell’Allegato Tecnico 1, il metodo del CUP è basato sul raffronto tra il prezzo applicato a beni e servizi oggetto delle transazioni tra parti correlate e il prezzo applicato fra parti indipendenti nel regolare transazioni potenzialmente comparabili.

Tale metodo può essere applicato sia ai flussi “esterni”, cioè tra soggetti indipendenti, che a quelli “interni”, cioè tra una delle parti nelle transazioni infragruppo analizzate e uno o più soggetti terzi.

Nel primo caso, la comparazione sarà effettuata tra una transazione fra parti correlate (intercompany) e una transazione comparabile fra parti indipendenti (“external CUP”), mentre nel secondo caso sarà effettuata tra una transazione fra parti correlate (intercompany) e una transazione comparabile fra la stessa parte finanziata/finanziatrice della transazione intercompany e controparti finanziate/finanziatrici indipendenti (“internal CUP”).

Il prezzo utilizzato quale termine di paragone può essere rettificato, quando necessario, per tenere in considerazioni eventuali differenze tecniche/qualitative dei prodotti/servizi coinvolti, specifiche condizioni di vendita o altri fattori.

Il CUP è generalmente il metodo più attendibile per valutare il rispetto dell’arm’s length standard qualora le transazioni controllate e quelle comparabili siano pressoché identiche ovvero le differenze esistenti siano minime, facilmente identificabili e, soprattutto, misurabili.

Il metodo CUP, quando è applicato a transazioni che implicano un flusso di pagamenti alle stesse condizioni per un certo periodo di tempo, piuttosto che un unico prezzo da pagare una volta sola o in rate, è anche definito dagli specialisti, nella prassi, come il metodo del confronto delle transazioni indipendenti.
Translation - English
Comparable Uncontrolled Price Method (CUP)

As illustrated in greater detail in Technical Appendix 1, the CUP method is based on a comparison between the price applied to goods and services subject to transactions between related parties and the price applied between independent parties in potentially comparable transactions.

This method may be applied to “external” transactions, i.e., between independent parties, and “internal” transactions, i.e., between one of the parties to the intercompany transactions analysed and one or more third parties.

In the first case, the comparison is between a transaction between related parties (intercompany) and a comparable transaction between independent parties (“external CUP”). In the second case, it is between a transaction between related parties (intercompany) and a comparable transaction between the borrower/lender in the intercompany transaction and independent borrowers/lenders (“internal CUP”).

If necessary, the price used as a benchmark may be adjusted to take into consideration any technical/qualitative differences in the products/services concerned, specific sale conditions or other factors.

The CUP is generally the most reliable method to assess compliance with the arm’s length principle if the controlled and comparable transactions are almost identical or the differences between them are minimal, easy to identify and, especially, measurable.

When the CUP method is applied to transactions that involve payment flows under the same conditions for a given period of time, rather than a single price to be paid only once or in instalments, in practice, it is also defined by specialists as the comparable uncontrolled transaction (CUT) method.

Os Xavante se autodominam A'UWE, isto é: gente, pessoas de verdade, homens de verdade.

Habitat:
Até quase a metade do século passado, os Xavante viviam no território entre os rios Araguaia e Tocantins. Em seguida, por motivo de perseguições, se deslocaram para o território compreendido entre os rios Coluene e das Mortes, no Mato Grosso. Atualmente, habitam as reservas de Pimentel Barbosa, Areões, Parabubure, Marechal Rondon, São Marcos e Sangradouro; faltando executar ainda a demarcação de Suiá-missu.

Língua:
Os Xavante pertencem ao “Tronco Macro-Jê”, cujo maior constituinte é a família lingüística Jê. Como os Xavante, pertencem a esta família os Xerente, Kaingáng, Kayapó, Canela, Apinayé.
.....
A Aldeia:
A aldeia original Xavante, construída sempre nas proximidades de um córrego ou rio menor, tem a forma de uma ferradura, com a abertura voltada para o rio. As casas têm a porta sempre voltada para o centro da aldeia. Numa das extremidades da aldeia se encontra a Casa dos Adolescentes. No meio há uma grande praça, local de reuniões dos homens. Aí também são tomadas as grandes decisões do “Conselho dos Anciãos”.
.....
Atualmente, são poucos os Xavante que conservam a forma original da casa. Estão imitando a palhoça do caboclo, com graves conseqüências negativas para a vida tribal.
A concepção simbólica do semi-arco, presente no mito da origem dos Xavante (o arco-íris), na disposição das danças religiosas, na forma da aldeia, no arco da casa, está ausente atualmente.
A tradicional casa Xavante, a cada 04 ou 05 anos, mudava de lugar, reconstruíndo-a. Atualmente, não muda, sendo feitas de madeiras mais consistentes; daí a problemática da falta de higiene.

Translation - English
The Xavante call themselves A'UWE, which means "people," "real people," "real men."

Habitat:
Until just before the middle of the last century, the Xavante lived in the territory between the Araguaia and Tocantins rivers. Following this period, they moved to the territory between the Coluene and das Mortes rivers, in Mato Grosso, because of persecution. Currently, they live on the reserves of Pimental Barbosa, Areões, Parabubure, Marechal Rondon, São Marcos and Sangradouro; the boundaries of Suiá-missu not being defined yet.

Language:
The Xavante belong to the Macro-Ge language family tree, whose major constituent is the Ge linguistic family. Other peoples who belong to this group along with the Xavante include the Xerente, Kaingáng, Kayapó, Canela and Apinayé.
.....
The Village:
The original Xavante village was always built near a stream or small river and has the form of a horseshoe with the opening facing the river. The doors of the houses are always facing the centre of the village. On one end of the village is the House of Adolescents. In the middle there is a large plaza, where the men have meetings. The "Council of Elders" also makes important decisions there.
.....
Currently, there are few Xavante who maintain the original shape of the house. They now imitate the simple straw hut of the caboclo, which has serious negative consequences for tribal life.
The symbolic conception of the bow, present in the Xavante's origin myth (the rainbow), in the pattern of religious dances, in the shape of villages, in the arch of the house, is currently missing.
In the past, the traditional Xavante house was moved to a different place and rebuilt every 4 or 5 years. Currently, it is not moved, as it is made of more solid wood; this results in the problem of a lack of hygiene.
