In today’s global business environment, companies are expected to be transparent about how they operate globally and where they pay tax. As a result, our clients have had to rethink how to explain operating models and tax approaches to stakeholders. This means being able to understand the commercial facts and aligning them with profit and tax outcomes.

By integrating KPMG’s Value Chain Analysis (‘VCA’) methodology into your business operations, we can help you reduce costs and risks, allowing you to make the most of your investment.
