Commodity trading companies – Meeting the challenge of tax and regulatory change

Commodity trading companies - Tax and regulatory change

This new global report Commodity trading companies – Meeting the challenge of tax and regulatory change is a follow-up to the 2012 report, Commodity trading companies: Centralizing trade as a critical success factor, where ENR tax and management consulting professionals with KPMG International’s network of member firms explored the growing popularity of these models and outlined their benefits and risks, commercially and from a tax perspective.

In our new global report, ENR professionals with the member firms of KPMG International take stock of the new trends and developments that are transforming the commodity trading sector.

Since 2012, the global landscape for the oil, gas, mining and agricultural industries and commodity traders has changed dramatically. Regulatory changes are taking hold, the direction of international tax reforms is becoming somewhat clearer, and the long-term impact of current pricing volatility, especially for crude oil is unknown - all of which make this an opportune time to take stock of the trends and developments that are transforming the commodity trading sector.

To this end, we sought the views of KPMG ENR professionals around the world to answer these questions:

  • How are commercial and regulatory pressures influencing commodity trading business models?
  • What aspects of the global movement to address base erosion and profit shifting are creating the biggest challenges for international commodity trading structures?
  • How can commodity trading companies meet these challenges and position themselves to thrive in the years to come?

In summary, we describe how global companies can continue to reap substantial benefits from their centralized commodity trading operations - but how their success depends on their ability to navigate and manage a dynamically changing global marketplace.
