Digital River expanded its Value Added Tax (VAT) management capabilities by partnering with Meridian Global Services. Digital River has long provided VAT calculation and collection capabilities as part of its global commerce solution. Working with Meridian, Digital River can extend its VAT advisory and remittance capabilities as a companion offering to its Digital River World Payments solution. The joint offering provides cross-border merchants access to both global online payments and VAT compliance solutions. The technology combination benefits merchants by breaking down barriers that prevent them from maximising their overseas selling opportunities. While the Digital River World Payments solution enables merchants to cater to local preferences with regionally preferred payment options and purchasing experiences, Meridian’s solution helps merchants manage the back-office operations of VAT compliance, which go hand-in-hand with global transactions. Through its global payment solution, Digital River offers online merchants more than 180 international and local payment options, and over 170 transaction and display currencies.
