Tax & Law

We’ll help you navigate the global tax landscape

The business and tax landscapes have changed dramatically, and the pace and complexity of change continues to increase. We can help you navigate this shifting landscape. Governments are tempering the need for revenue with increased competition for labor and capital. Tax authorities are adapting their enforcement strategies, focus and policies in response to the changing dynamics of business. Companies are balancing competing priorities, ensuring they maintain compliance while adding value. We can assist you with these critical issues in today's tax environment, including:

  • Operational effectiveness of international supply chains

    Today’s business environment for large, global companies is more fluid and complex than ever before. Companies are adapting their supply chains to respond to increasingly competitive market conditions and to deliver higher revenue and greater value to their shareholders and customers.

    Now, more than ever, multinational companies are expanding their global footprint, to both seek new markets and to capture cost efficiencies. As part of this drive, they are increasingly expanding their supply chains.

    With every development in the supply chain comes new costs and new risks to factor in

    Alongside the advancement into new markets, leading companies are also further developing their existing supply chains to drive cost efficiencies and boost margins in their mature market operations.

    Leading companies recognise the need for comprehensive, proactive planning

    But whether it is to enter new markets or to drive efficiencies in existing markets, the new leading companies have one shared characteristic – they fully recognise that carrying out comprehensive, proactive planning across the new supply chain model can maximise the opportunities and mitigate the risks as much as possible.

    Only with a truly holistic approach can all supply chain costs - including taxes - be assessed and managed.

    The challenge of change

    Every day companies face decisions about how to change their operations on a global basis.

    The challenge in making such decisions is to look at the problem holistically, considering all facets of the problem. Tax consequences should be a part of the analysis because the tax impact of any business change may be very large and lead to a different result than an operations only analysis.

    Our approach

    Often, companies will bring tax into the process only after the operational opportunities or alternatives have been narrowed and defined, resulting in unforseen outcomes. Instead by integrating international tax at an earlier stage, different alternatives or operating models may emerge as the most effective overall.

    With the integrated approach of our Supply Chain Management practice, we can often unlock benefits that would not have been possible if such integration had not been present from the beginning.
