Software finance solutions

Software finance is becoming more and more common in the corporate world. Software is ever-evolving, and a lot of thought needs to go into the correct selection, implementation, and administration of enterprise software. Financing your software is a great way to stay up-to-date with all the latest software updates, while also preserving your cash reserves for other investments.

CHG-MERIDIAN | Cloud-based investment

Cloud-based investments can be hugely beneficial if old legacy systems or data servers are preventing your business from updating IT hardware and moving forward. Software licensing will not only provide improved productivity, but also offers flexibility to your business and will help manage cash flow.

Whether you need CRM or ERP solutions, MS Dynamics or Salesforce, we can provide software licencing that is effective and efficient for your business. CHG-MERIDIAN can also bundle multiple licences together depending on your needs and provide you with the financial, market and technology expertise that offers simplified solutions and independence. 

The software licences can be billed in a way that financially works for you, either yearly, monthly, quarterly or as deferred payments. This also provides the benefit of tax planning, as your licensing agreement is deductible against your company’s corporation tax.

Finally, once you’re all set up, you will have the full support of CHG-MERIDIAN, where our expert team have in-depth experience of business and commercial accounting, as well as licencing and tax law. This effective use of software will always ensure you’re fully compliant and making the greatest potential savings in IT budgets for your company.
