Ex-Post Transfer Pricing and Global Sourcing Decision in a Multinational Firm

Prof. Vernon N. Hsu
Choh-Ming Li Chair Professor of Decision Sciences and Managerial Economics
CUHK Business School
The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Abstract

Many multinational firms (MNFs) in recent years have put their efforts into developing tax-effective supply chain strategies that integrate tax considerations across different countries and take advantage of specific tax incentives. These strategies oftentimes involve the management of internal transactions taking place between divisions or subsidiaries belonging to the same MNF but located in different countries. Transfer pricing (TP), the pricing for transactions between divisions of an MNF, has been used not just as a tool to facilitate internal transactions; many MNFs also recognize the importance of combining the TP decisions with their tax considerations in improving their overall profitability, e.g., reducing their tax liabilities by shifting some income from high tax countries/regions to low tax ones. In this presentation, we will present a model in which a multinational firm’s production division sells a product to two sales divisions through a TP which is determined ex-post. We show that the MNF’s desire to maximize its global after-tax profits could cause the sales divisions to behave differently from what we expect under the traditional supply chain settings.
