- With economic globalization and the deepening of international division of labor, multinational corporations have become an important part of the world economy. Different from the scope of business activities in which domestic enterprises are only distributed in one country, the scope of business activities of multinational corporations extends to a number of countries and regions. Therefore, the complex and diversified business activities environment and characteristics of it have caused a special impact decision system for the capital structure of multinational corporations. The operations of multinational companies are affected by exchange rates and national policies, and they have special risks and advantages. In particular, multinational companies face a complex tax environment. The income tax has an impact on the capital structure of multinational corporations. The theoretical basis of this effect includes MM theory and trade-off theory. The decision of capital structure is an important financial issue for multinational companies. This paper summarizes some conclusions and suggestions based on the literature on capital structure and tax burden of multinational corporations.
