CONSULTING-BEST PRACTICE

We offer a unique team of International VAT and ERP systems experts, which have deep experience in understanding how ‘best in class’ companies achieve accurate VAT compliance and efficient processes in their ERP and reporting systems.

If you are looking to achieve ‘best practice’ across your ERP and VAT systems processes, then Meridian is your ideal partner. Our consulting services range from strategic assignments - where we evaluate the best VAT system design, configuration options or third parry interfaces and tax engines - to a deep-dive audit of your existing configuration to identify errors and weaknesses that expose your company to real financial risks.

Given our unique blend of VAT and ERP skills, we use our practical experience to quickly identify your (main) business flows, in order to gain the necessary understanding of the complexity of your global VAT issues. Our ERP system consultants as well as our International VAT consultants are knowledgeable in both areas. This prevents the common communication gaps and ensures an effective communication bridge between your business staff, your VAT staff and your IT staff.
