Tax Efficient Supply Chain Management Return to listing


The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the rapidly changing landscape in tax-efficient supply chain management (TESCM). 

Increasingly, multinationals are attempting to integrate global tax planning into the overall management of their supply chain. This integration affects all aspects of the firm, including the location and movement of activities, functions and people, and the control and allocation of risks. TESCM is designed to produce flexible tax planning that is operationally-driven and able to deliver long-term reductions in the firm’s effective tax rate and other taxes. Geographical reconfiguration of a global supply chain must consider aspects, such as potential gains and losses in terms of production and logistics costs, time and cost benefits due to co-location as well as implications for supply chain partners and customers.

Since operations and tax management have historically been positioned as occupying different silos, in many firms this integration is difficult to envision, let alone implement.  Because companies and their advisors view these TESCM restructurings as proprietary and confidential, little is known about the extent to which they have changed both supply chain management and tax planning. Our research and an academic conference scheduled for April 2014 have been designed to expand our understanding of TESCM.
