Global companies require global tax planning. It is not enough for a multinational company to adapt separately to each of its local operating environments. To take account of local, regional and national factors — and to thrive — a successful multinational company needs to adapt to all its environments. Tax is one of the most important environmental variables because it helps determine what kind of corporate structure is appropriate, where intellectual property should be located and how global supply chains should be configured to help mitigate overall effective tax rates.
