“Value Chain Analysis – the bridge between operating, governance and tax/TP models of an MNE”
Value Chain Analysis has become a burning topic for discussion for many after the publication of the final report on BEPS Action Plan 13 and subsequent notifications by governments (especially the Chinese government) on the extent of information to be included in such analysis. Due to lack of consistent and clear guidance on what triggers the need for a value chain analysis, what a value chain analysis should entail, how the value chain analysis will be used by tax authorities around the globe etc.

 
“Value Chain Analysis – the bridge between operating, governance and tax/TP models of an MNE”

Value Chain Analysis has become a burning topic for discussion for many after the publication of the final report on BEPS Action Plan 13 and subsequent notifications by governments (especially the Chinese government) on the extent of information to be included in such analysis. Due to lack of consistent and clear guidance on what triggers the need for a value chain analysis, what a value chain analysis should entail, how the value chain analysis will be used by tax authorities around the globe etc., there emerges an imminent requirement on the part of the MNE to ensure that the information reported in the value chain analysis conducted for tax/TP purposes does not contradict that presented to various stakeholders through governance and operating models.  

That being said, in this webinar we will address what hurdles an MNE encounters when it actually initiates the process of conducting a value chain analysis and what are the basic requirements to be kept in mind for any type of value chain analysis.

Key highlights of the webinar

  • Presentation of case studies on:
    • Pharmaceutical industry
    • Insurance Industry
    • Toys and games industry
  • How can an MNE conduct a basic value chain analysis for itself?
  • What are the requirements of a tax governance structure for an MNE?
  • How should an MNE remove misalignments of Masterfiles, local files, CbCR, tax returns and corporate governance policies?
  • What are the interpretations of VCA adopted by the local tax authorities/governments?

“Increase your chances of survival in battles with tax authorities”

A simplified guide to increasing your chances of survival in battles with tax authorities.

Multinational enterprises (MNEs) have been facing disputes on tax and/or transfer pricing with tax authorities since their very inception. In light of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan of the OECD and the many UN initiatives to set new norms for tax and transfer pricing, many tax authorities around the globe will use the grey areas in these plans to challenge as many tax structures as they can, sometimes leading to nothing more than pure aggressive behavior. As a consequence, it goes without saying that tax disputes will become a new reality in the world of companies.

Over the course of time, although a wide variety of tools have been developed (at both global as well as national levels) to address these disputes, their parallel existence has created more confusion and inconsistencies than resolving many.

Thus, during this webinar, we will address the reasons behind this flurry of tax/TP disputes and the timeline an MNE should keep in mind for mitigating such disputes. Bearing in mind that even after exploring all preventive options on the part of the MNE such as tax rulings, safe harbor principles, ISO certifications, tax disputes will still arise, leading not only to an economic penalty but, in some instances, even criminal indictment. Therefore, in this changing era of tax disputes, it becomes equally essential to be aware of and prepared for resolving such disputes in a methodical and timely manner.

Key Highlights of the webinar

  • Presentation of key tax-related areas of disputes (e.g.: withholding taxes, permanent establishment, dual residence etc.).
  • Presentation of steps involved in negotiation, mediation and court battles with tax authorities.
  • Presentation of misalignment between various global (e.g. OECD, UN, EU) tax systems with tax laws of local governments, leading to an increase in disputes.
  • Presentation of jurisprudence on dispute resolution in various countries developed from local case laws.
  • Presentation on how TPA can help relieve your burden of disputes and smoothen the process of representation before tax authorities and courts.
