In the ever-changing world of business transformation, application of the US tax rules to new and different operating models and supply chains is increasingly complex.

Add to the mix international tax reform, the OECD Projects, including Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS), plus increasing regulatory demands and you can see how your supply chain changes necessitate an integrated business, tax and IT implementation approach.

During this webcast, we will review the changes that are shaping your supply chain now or will be in the near future. These trends include: Big Data; closer collaboration with suppliers and customers; supply chain segmentation; enhanced procurement; manufacturing (Near-shoring/Re-shoring/3D printing); and end-to-end cost optimization.

Join our panel of EY tax and advisory professionals for an interactive discussion and find out how these developments will impact your company’s business and tax operating model. During this live, interactive webcast, you will have the opportunity to ask questions through the website and the panelists will answer as many of your questions as time permits.

This program will be of interest to vice presidents/directors of operations/supply chain/tax/international tax/transfer pricing/customs/global trade, directors of finance, CFOs, international tax managers and tax accountants looking for the latest practical information and guidance on how supply chain changes impact current tax analysis and planning. We hope you will be able to join us.
