I have worked with Andrew for just over a year now and am delighted with the work carried out by him. We were preparing to implement a new accounting system that offered us a VAT solution that no one properly understood and Andrew was hired at the eleventh hour to help us with the VAT configuration of Oracle Accounts Payable and E-tax. Andrew’s excellent knowledge of Oracle AP and how it is designed and deals with VAT reporting and accounting combined with his knowledge of how the VAT system works in the UK and Ireland helped us significantly in getting the E-tax engine configuration correct for our very complicated Legal Entity structure to ensure VAT is correctly accounted for and recovered. Andrew was able to quickly identify the main configuration areas and how these were linked to our processes and accounting requirements and ensured that when Oracle was fully implemented by us it was configured correctly for VAT accounting on day 1. Andrew’s ability to manage the high volume and technically demanding workload that was required of him during this project has been huge and I would have no hesitation in recommending him as ‘’the’’ E-Tax Expert.
Andrew Bohnet played a vital role for National Instruments (NI) by overseeing all aspects of setting up the eBusiness Tax engine during a complex multinational upgrade from 11i to r12. NI had been using Oracle for approx 15 years to support all aspects of a rapidly growing range of businesses and countries throughout Europe, Asia and Oceania. As a foundation for future growth we decided to move to r12 as a fresh install, with a migration of historic data, in order to implement a full multi-org structure, and a revised chart of accounts. In the end we set up 28 Tax Regimes to support business in 50 Operating Units in 37 Legal Entities. This project successfully went live, without any disruption to the business, after only 9 months of development and testing. Andrew's deep knowledge and understanding of both the r12 tax engine, and the local country requirements, was a critical component to our success. While some of the set ups were reasonably straightforward others were quite complex in order to support specific business requirements. In every case Andrew was able to come up with a workable solution. Using Andrew's skills allowed us to focus our internal resources on other areas and only fully train on eBTax after the project was complete. On a personal level Andrew was able to quickly build a rapport with our internal team and, despite being the only external consultant on the project, he worked really well with everyone.

Most importantly Andrew effectively leverages with his wider network to enable him to deliver optimum solutions. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew or working with him again.
