Business model optimization

Assessing a multinational’s global business model is no longer an optional exercise. There is a continuous need to ensure that improvements in technology are adopted, that best practices and processes are implemented, and that businesses adapt to changes in the legislative environment. Business Model Optimization (BMO) balances the demands of operations and tax law and integrates them into the business model. This helps ensure tax planning does not adversely affect the bottom line and that the business model does not surrender some or all of the value it creates.

We provide high quality, customized tax and BMO services that focus on helping multinationals integrate operational and tax planning in a scalable and sustainable way in order to enable you to make more effective decisions.

Operational Transfer Pricing

Corporate tax departments often come across inconsistent transfer pricing data from their business units and this can dramatically increase business complexity and the workload of your team, and potentially cause problems at quarter- or year-end.

If your business has significant intercompany transactions, inconsistent or unpredictable TP results that impose burdensome data sourcing requirements or make it difficult to forecast the effective tax rate, our specialists can work with your existing ERP system, offering new tools and processes to help your tax department overcome serious data and process issues.

Our approach is structured, platform independent and will provide you with the power to effectively manage your TP systems, providing maximum benefit to your business and minimizing risks.

Getting your operational transfer pricing systems right, will allow you to gain control over your transfer pricing position and identify quick wins, opportunities, anomalies and trends, both for individual transactions and your wider TP operations.
