Value Chain Analysis Workshops for Corporates.

The Bridge to Align the Operating Model, Corporate Governance Framework and the Tax/Transfer Pricing Structure of an MNE.

Due to globalization and increasing business complexities, management boards are experiencing difficulties in being in control of their operating model and transfer pricing model simultaneously. The key decision makers in an organization in practice appear sometimes wearing multiple hats in the decision-making process, making the organization not being in control. As a consequence, tax policies are often not aligned with the operating model of the organization.

The growing reputational risk attached to tax strategies in the post BEPS era is forcing boards to focus on their taxes as much as they do on other areas of corporate governance. In order to align the corporate governance model with the operating model as well as the transfer pricing model, a full Value Chain Analysis (“VCA”) is critical.

By conducting a VCA, the misalignments can be made visible. In other words, the potential mismatches in where the people functions are located and the value is created and where the profit is landing can be identified in a VCA. The higher the delta of the outcome of the VCA in terms of misalignment, the greater the need to provide explanations to the tax authorities and other stakeholders. VCA also serves the process starting from identifying the decision makers in the organization to implementation of an aligned operating business model and hence solidifying the corporate governance framework.

This workshop will address the transition as a result of the BEPS project of the OECD, from the traditional pre-BEPS functional analysis to the post BEPS VCA, where economic, financial and legal reality should underpin the coherence between corporate governance, operating model and transfer pricing model.

During this workshop the following will be discussed:

  • Up to 10 VCA case studies to train you on performing your own VCA;
  • The main features of a corporate governance framework;
  • A holistic view of the steps required to implement such a VCA model;
  • Address VCA techniques and standards of reference;
  • How a VCA will fully align the corporate governance framework, operating model and the tax/ TP structure of the MNE;
  • How VCA can be applied for preparing a consistent storyboard to all stakeholders and managing controversy; and
  • Address various organizational challenges on change management.
