Supply Chain Transformation

What is Supply Chain Transformation?

Optimising your business processes and systems to achieve financial, tax, trade and operational alignment will allow you to deliver profitability, increase efficiency and create a solid foundation for sustainable growth. This journey is what we call Supply Chain Transformation (SCT).​

Supply Chain Transformation

Transforming your business to achieve tax, financial, legal and operational alignment

Businesses in Hong Kong and their world-wide subsidiaries are impacted by rapidly changing government and environmental regulations, trade policies, skilled professional relocations and shifting customer demands.

Businesses look to reconfigure operating models in their search for value and growth. Failure to align operating models, tax, trade and financing structures with business goals can mean a loss of operational efficiencies and unnecessary costs. This then acts as a brake on competing and winning. Aligning all these elements during a change in business operations or diversification of supply chain locations will allow you to optimise profitability, increase efficiency and create a solid foundation for sustainable growth. Supply Chain Transformation can enable businesses to overcome challenges and compete successfully in complex business environments.

  • Recent inbound or outbound acquisitions or mergers;​

  • New lines of business or geographic expansion of production or operating base;​

  • Significant cross border investments in greenfield or existing production facilities, or other investments in product research and development or intellectual property;​

  • Multiple cross-border inter-company transactions: inconsistent effective tax rate and positions;​

  • A decentralised operating model with business pressures to do more on a regional or global basis, such as procurement, supply chain, customer pricing and contracts.​
