Transnational companies (TNC) and multinational companies (MNC) manage the production or distributes services in more than one company. They will typically have their headquarters in one country known as the home country, and they also have businesses in several other countries, which are known as the host companies. Industries such as manufacturing, oil mining, agriculture, consulting, accounting, construction, legal, advertising, entertainment, banking, telecommunications, and housing are often run by TNC’s and MNC’s. They are both essential to globalization, economic, and environmental lobbying in most countries. They are also significant to budget. TNC has been defined as the United Nations Commission or Transnational Corporations and Investment Businesses, which regulate manufacturing or service capabilities outside of the home country.

Transnational companies (TNC) and multinational companies (MNC) manage the production or
MNC is the older phrase, and it continues to be the generic label for firms similar to TNC and MNC. The central difference between the two is that multinational companies have an investment in other countries but do not have equivalent product offerings in each country. Their main objective is to modify their goods and service to each local market. A couple of examples include McDonald’s and Seven-Eleven. On the other hand, transnational companies are more sophisticated firms, which have participated in foreign operations, have a central corporate facility, and grant decision-making and marketing powers to each foreign market. A couple of examples include Shell and Glaxo-Smith Klein.

MNC is known as a Multinational Company. This is a type of company that will operate from its home country. Even though its main company is located in one country, it will have the ability to operate in different countries.

There are different goods and services that are being offered in varying countries too. TNC, on the other hand, refers to Transnational Corporations. This means that it is also operating in different countries aside from its home country. One example of this is Coca Cola. There are some countries in the world wherein Coca Cola is more popular as compared to its home country. McDonald’s is an example of a TNC because it has branches in different parts of the world.

MNC still faces tariffs such as tax, excise duty, and quota when exporting goods to other countries, while TNC jumps all these tariffs and produce in any country. MNC pays tax to the home country alone while TNC pays tax to both home and source country. MNC only register in the home country, not in other countries, while TNC registers in other countries, so they are not treated as MNC. MNC has a centralized system where global management is coordinated while TNC does not have a centralized market and is free to make a decision based on the local market.

A transnational is just another name for a multi-national. The fashion term transnational still does not remove the requirement for a country to report to a parent company somewhere; there will always be an ultimate parent.
