Webinar: Common challenges and practical tips in ERP localisation projects

Sponsored by


ITR and TMF Group hosted a webinar on March 31 to discuss the common pitfalls in ERP localisation projects and practical matters that should be prioritised in finance teams’ agenda.


 In association with TMF Group, the webinar took place on March 31 at 3pm BST (4pm CEST).  

Localising an ERP system becomes a necessity, rather than a choice for businesses. 

Due to the OECD’s proposed changes under Tax Administration 3.0, pressure mounts for companies to implement new ERP systems that have integral real-time compliance and require limited human intervention. 

Implementing a new ERP system always introduces additional complexities and challenges to businesses and their financial teams. In a recent survey conducted by TMF, most companies expect to face major challenges with people, processes, and in-house expertise in future ERP localisation projects.

  • What are the key challenges in localising ERP systems?

  • What should businesses consider in ERP localisation projects?

Join Csaba Farkas, head of global accounting and tax consultancy at TMF Group, to learn more about the common pitfalls in ERP localisation projects and practical matters that should be prioritised in finance teams’ agenda.
