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.
