Inergy and du ROI Accountants, Tax Advisors & IT Auditors, entered into a strategic partnership on November 13. Part of the agreement is the sale to Inergy of Gemstone, a software application that allows a municipality to audit its financial records to determine whether it is fiscally in control.
LIAS is used by almost all Dutch municipalities
Mathijs van Houweninge, CEO of Inergy: "Gemstone is an important part of the Horizontal Supervision for which more and more municipalities are signing a covenant with the Dutch tax authorities. The application fits well with our portfolio and our strategy for (semi-) government. This is aimed at supporting municipalities to work in a more data-driven way and to get more grip on performance on the basis of more insight, thus being in better control. With the LIAS product suite, Inergy is the market leader in the field of planning and control for municipalities. With the addition of Gemstone and, earlier this year, PAUW, BUIG and Info, Inergy now offers a platform that is used by virtually all Dutch municipalities."
Broadening of services
Wil Peters, partner at du ROI: "Municipalities are increasingly having to deal with VAT, VPB and payroll taxes due to their wide variety of activities. Tax management, risk management and compliance are not among the core activities of a municipality. This cooperation and combination of portfolios ensures a broadening of services in these areas for our clients."
