Tax-Efficient Supply Chain Management (TESCM) is a well-established, multi-functional process through which multi-national enterprises (MNEs) can obtain substantial operational savings as well as tax benefits by incorporating tax planning into the design of supply chain structures and transfer pricing policies. TESCM projects are scaled to each MNE’s business needs:

• For MNEs undergoing major life-cycle events such as mergers, reorganizations or global expansion, TESCM can address all aspects of the global supply chain, including the location of a centralized supply chain management company;

• For MNEs with significant Chinese operations, TESCM can help rationalize the Chinese operating structure and address China-specific issues such as trapped losses in unconsolidated subsidiaries;

• For all MNEs, TESCM can help streamline IT systems and corporate procedures to make transfer pricing compliance more timely and effective.


In this seminar, we will feature:

• An introduction by David Ling, KPMG's Northern China Tax Partner in Charge;

• An overview of the TESCM process and best practices by David Chamberlain, Beijing Transfer Pricing Director , Ex-Team Leader of Advance Pricing Agreement (APA) Program in U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS);

• An assessment of TESCM in China, including corporate tax and operational considerations, by Roger Di, KPMG Beijing Tax Partner;

• Sharing of insights on TESCM from a global perspective from Sean Foley, leader of KPMG Global Transfer Pricing Services (GTPS), and Clark Chandler, Chief Economist for GTPS
