VCA – A Bridge To Align Operating And Governance Models With Tax/TP Set-up

; posted on

The value chain refers to the entire performance process of a company, which begins with the research and development and ends with the delivery to the end consumer. While a functional and risk analysis is geared to individual group companies, a value chain analysis applies on crosscompany processes within the Group.


As there is no objective method to conduct a value chain analysis, the basic approach to be followed for any value chain analysis should start with identifying the industry-wide value chain and mapping the value linkages of the MNE within the industry. A value contribution analysis should contain evidence as to what prices, cost premiums, margins, etc. are, in light of the economic contributions of individual companies, considered reasonable.
