Join our next Transfer Pricing Webinar on Thursday, 1 October 2020, 2.00pm (CET) to discuss different issues that can arise when changing supply chains, including how MNCs are managing supply chain disruptions and opportunities, and the related tax implications.

About the Webinar:

In the current environment, companies are looking closely at their supply chains, and assessing the potential impact and forward-looking approach to building and managing more resilient supply chains.

Generally, these changes will have a tax impact.

In this webinar, we will explore what enables a supply chain to mitigate the impact and respond to disruption, as well as the trends we are observing within various industries from a tax perspective.

In particular, we will discuss the following topics:

  • Changing manufacturing footprints to ensure supply chain continuity
  • Amending distribution arrangements to better ensure that customers can be served
  • Setting up alternative shared service arrangements to provide business certainty of key functions
  • Inventory and stock adjustments
