GDB Award Winners for Innovation and Technology
VAT International is proud to announce that we have won the award for Innovation and Technology at the prestigious Gatwick Diamond Business Awards 2016. Our unique VAT Data Analytical software and Management system provide a new approach to indect tax management.
Our CEO, Martyn Redman, has discussed what winning means to us.
“From early childhood, it’s always exciting to receive a prize; for winning a race, getting top marks, or getting distinction in a dancing exam.
In business, getting an award is exciting too.
For VAT International it means much more – a recognition of achievement and, perhaps more importantly, it has provided an additional incentive and inspiration to develop even further.
Acknowledging the tremendous effort that has gone into getting the software where it is today is very gratifying. Countless thousands of hours have gone into the development of our software – both in the ‘management’ software - that enable more efficient and effective information handling for our customers and staff – and in our ‘forensic’ software that have involved pouring over VAT legislation in all the member states and implementing them to enable our clients to remain compliant with EU VAT legislation.
As with all software, constant upgrading is vital. In our case this means not only improving the range of tests offered by the software to meet client needs but also building in upgrades arising from changes anywhere in the EU. Winning an award gives that extra inspiration to add to the dedication of our VAT experts and IT specialists.
For us winning this award is a major step forward. We are very thrilled to have been chosen.”
Lisa Downs, Commercial Partner with Rawlison Butler (the award sponsors and judges), said: "This firm's technology is enabling it to not only streamline its internal processes, but also win household names as clients through recommendations from existing clients using their technology.
"Revenue has increased as a result and the employees are actively involved in the creation and future development of the technology into other markets."
