What are MNCs?
Multinational corporations (MNCs) are those companies that work in many different countries at the same time. A multinational corporation has functioning and liability in at least more than one country.
The MNCs operate in three different models which are
- Centralized model: In a centralised model, the company works through one central head office in its home country and then builds its manufacturing facilities in other countries where it is operating. The centralized model helps MNCs to avoid excise and other taxes associated with imports. This model helps to take full advantage of lower manufacturing prices.
- Regional model: In a regional model, the MNC holds on to its head office in one country which manages its other branch and offices located in other countries. All the branches and affiliates of the MNC report to its head office.
- Multinational model: In a multinational or transnational model, the parent company works separately in its home country and its branches and affiliates which are in other countries also operate separately. A multinational or transnational model is a combination of the above two models.
MNCs are those companies in which the foreign shareholding is over 50% and the management control is placed in the foreign company.
