"Tax Technology: Transforming Your Tax Functions To Gain Benefit From Technology"

Tax authorities are increasingly relying on technology for data gathering, exchange of information and analytics. Current digital systems can even provide real-time tax collections, re-conciliations and assessments. This means the pull-factor to digitalize as an MNE gets stronger by the day.

One of the benefits of automation is that it helps to avoid mistakes in calculations and other repetitive tasks. In order for companies to stay relevant they need to integrate/adjust those new technologies in their business model. Along with the implementation of the digitalization wave it is highly important that a company try to move from ‘Staying out of trouble’ to being ‘Fully in control’. In order to do that a thorough insight of the company’s roadmap is needed.

Key Highlights

The webinar will consider the following:

  • How to effectively adopt and enable tax technology initiatives;
  • The technologies which can positively impact tax functions; and
  • Insight to Tax technology strategy and roadmap.

“TPA Global’s Approach on Transactional Quantitative And Holistic Quantitative Value Chain Analysis”

Value Chain Analysis (“VCA”) has become a burning topic for discussion. It is of high importance, companies to understand how to conduct a Value chain analysis in order to support their transactions and define the value creation processes. Conducting a VCA analysis plays a vital role on supporting TP documentation, negotiation, communication to the board and other stakeholders.

We are all aware that in a qualitative analysis, four (4) different techniques are used. These techniques are: Pie charts, Porter’s style visualization, Process contribution analysis/Balanced score cards and Canvas. After a qualitative method, there is the need of a quantitative VCA.

A quantitative analysis allocates a portion of EBIT on a responsibility profile (i.e. investment, profit, revenue or cost centre) and the relevant carve-out method. Each entity from a multinational enterprise (“MNE”) is allocated a portion of EBIT based on the relevant allocation keys. Quantitative VCA is presented as a corroborative method for transactional transfer pricing.

In order to make this analysis more objective there are three (3) anchors that need to be followed:

  • Regulatory anchor-countries regulation requirements
  • Industry anchor-value drivers that have an economically significant impact on your EBIT
  • BEPS-compliant anchor- BEPS criteria for a proper quantification of carve-outs and allocation to countries/ legal entities

In this regard, an industry-wide analysis needs to be performed in order to enhance the robustness of the outcome. This process adds an extra layer of objectivity to the quantification.

Thus, a combined qualitative and quantitative VCA constitutes an important tool, which can provide a holistic economic view on the activities of the MNE group and further, analyse and align the operating model.

Key Highlights

With this objective in mind, we invite you to an informative webinar where we will discuss the following:

  • Presentation of Transactional quantitative VCA analysis, focusing on the price/profit level.
  • Presentation of TPA’s Global holistic quantitative VCA analysis, discussing every step of the of the process
  • Extended explanation with examples of the Simple and the Complex quantitative VCA
  • A detailed explanation of an industry-wide approach, in order to identify the key profit drivers of an industry.
  • Examples of some of the industry-wide analysis
