Tax-Effective Global Value Chain – Post-BEPS

Overview and learning objectives

Multinational enterprises (MNEs) are continuously exploring opportunities to reduce costs and increase efficiency by streamlining processes and relocating functions across countries. In designing organizational structures, the possibility of pursuing tax savings is often one of the drivers in the decision-making process. As a result, MNEs normally consider the use of tax-efficient global value chain structures when organizing their business or setting up establishments in new markets.
This three-day course is designed to provide participants with a thorough knowledge of the international tax issues that would need to be taken into account when structuring global value chains in the post-BEPS world. Participants will acquire an in-depth understanding of the trends relating to the structuring of global value chains, the relevant tax treaty and transfer pricing considerations, including measures proposed/adopted under the OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Action Plan. The course will also include practical examples and case studies to enable participants to gain confidence in applying the skills acquired during the course in practice.
This is an interactive course with a maximum of 40 participants. Participants will be given access to online supplementary materials (e.g. legal documentation, case law and related articles/literature). During the course, participants will be provided with a course binder containing documents relevant to the course.
