Realignment of supply chain

A Danish based group with a significant global presence needed to make sudden changes in the supply chain due to external factors.

The tax considerations involved an analysis of customs and VAT issues when products were shipped via new countries and temporary warehouses were used in locations not traditionally used.

Other tax considerations concerned the intercompany pricing of the products as production capacity became fully utilised in some production sites while others were idle, but still accumulating fixed cost.

Other intercompany pricing issues concerned the allocation of products to different markets depending on profitability or other market conditions.
