BGI’s AP VAT review was a success both in terms of the refund which funded the project as the insights we gained in respect of our AP processes. BGI’s approach, expertise and technical knowledge is impressing and the team a pleasure to work with. The BGI team fully delivered what was promised and acted as a true business partner.
We were very pleased with your recent VAT and AP review. The involvement of our VAT and AP employees in the review procedure was limited in time.
We were also very positively impressed by the consultants knowledge displayed of the VAT rules and regulations specific to the Netherlands, as well as the risk areas associated with our business. This review has been of great use to our company to verify the efficiency of both our VAT and Accounts Payable departments and we are extremely satisfied about the service from BGI. We shall not hesitate to work together with BGI in the near future.
I would like to express my thanks for the efficient and thorough VAT and duplicate payments review undertaken by your company. Thanks to your knowledge and professional approach a complete review was done of all these transactions, of which the outcome gave us the assurance on robustness of these internal processes. The work was performed with very little impact on our accounts team and day to day operations. Also we enjoyed the courtesy of you and your team resulting in a very good cooperation. I would certainly recommend this exercise and the assistance of BGI based on our positive experience of this review, as well from a process side as the quality and professionalism of BGI.
I was impressed with the professionalism and courtesy of your team and in the way in which they undertook the review with minimal impact on our staff and our day to day operations. I would have no hesitation in recommending BGI Benchmark Group International to other prospective clients.
Having had some other organizations scrutinizing our data in the past in similar exercises, I was somewhat skeptical of weather your VAT experts would find anything material. As you know, however, they have identified areas of under-claim within our systems which has made the whole exercise well worth while. It is clear that the audit software you use, combined with the professionalism of your people is a real asset to your business. It has been a pleasure working with BGI and I think this has a mutually benefited both our organizations.
As you know I was concerned that the review would be quite demanding of my time and that my SSC/indirect tax colleagues. However, I was pleased to see that your queries were very limited in number and you were able to form a view on most items included in your exception Report quite independently.
It was very beneficial to receive third part comfort that our processes and controls are effective. The review generated some windfall income, which was a nice bonus. The review highlighted a couple areas where internal checks can be introduced to prevent future losses. We found BGI Benchmark Group International to be a capable and reliable business partner.
