For companies operating through several legal entities in different countries, the Single Business Entity (SBE®) may be the most efficient set-up. It combines all commercial processes and values administratively into one legal entity and allows you to act as if you are a virtual borderless company. Internal complexity is reduced to a bare minimum and everything is geared towards external focus. The SBE’s has it’s legal and fiscal consequences but there are several solutions to tailor these consequences.
Groenewout and Voorne can specifically support your ideas on developing a Supply Chain SBE® (SC SBE). This is a major variant on the SBE theme, either as a stepping stone towards a full SBE® or as a solution in cases where, for market reasons sales and marketing are best left steered and organized fully locally. The supply chain will become one virtual delivery organization, but it will supply a multitude of more independent sales and marketing units. Planning, control, internal efficiency are still greatly enhanced.
