What is the importance of tax issues?


Global companies require tax planning. It is not enough that a multinational company adapts separately to each of its local operating environments.


For a multinational company to be successful it is necessary to take into account national and regional factors and adapt to all economic and social aspects. 


And tax is one of the most important variables, because it helps determine:


  • What type of corporate structure is more appropriate.
  • Where intellectual property should be allocated.
  • How global supply chains must be configured to help alleviate the tax rates in force.
