Migration strategies for S/4HANA and the VAT Add-on

Advantages of implementing the VAT Add-on when companies are about to embark on an S/4HANA migration or are currently in the middle of an S/4 migration

The Meridian VAT Add-on provides enables automated and compliant tax flows for SAP S/4HANA Cloud ERP. Some customers may be waiting to complete the S/4HANA migration before implementing the VAT Add-on.

The customer scenario

S/4 migrations are a big projects with a considerable time and resource investment. This means that the customer may feel that it will be some time before they are ready to look at the Tax automation subject.  

On the other hand, going with a full S4 implementation and then redesigning the system later (whether via a VAT Add-on implementation or some other solution) would be a greater challenge. It would involve making significant changes (e.g. master data, configuration, processes etc.) to a system that is already up and running.

Both Meridian and our implementation partners are finding that clients implementing S/4Hana are seeing the benefits of adding the VAT Add-on to a clean system at the initial stage.

The advantage of concurrent implementation of the VAT Add-on with S/4 HANA

  • Implementing the VAT Add-on now takes the pressure off the S/4 project as VAT determination is one less thing to worry about. 

  • Master data, tax codes and complex business flows are all addressed as part of the initial project rather than retrofitted to an existing system that has already been designed and configured.

  • Customer knows when moving to S/4 that they have a VAT automation process that works. ​
