Cracking the GST puzzle for SMEs:

  Four Challenges, One Solution!

It’s a fact, entrepreneurs have spent the last several months trying to figure out the Indian government’s GST return filing processes, but many of them may be  somewhat confused and hassled.

The technically complex design of the GST returns process assumes every businessman in the country is an experienced accountant and businessmen have nothing better to do (such as running their businesses) than fill out multiple GST forms in the form of puzzles every month.

CHALLENGE 1: —————–

Incorporating Multiple GST Slabs, Multiple Service Codes, and Multiple Origin/ Destination states make the GST compliance cumbersome. The more the SLABS, the more complex the forms and processes get, and the more discretion the authorities get to tinker around. So changes are made to slabs more often.

SOLUTION: 

LOGO’s GST Solutions intelligently populate the right slabs, right item/service codes from its database as per requisite products or services, so that companies avoid human errors in referring to slabs manually.

CHALLENGE 2: —————–

GST returns are too complex. The government has an ambitious plan of tracking every invoice for every transaction for every business in the country and matching the GST collected and paid, every month. While this may be a dream for the tax department, it makes life super complicated for companies, many of whom have never done such an exercise their entire lives.

SOLUTION: 

LOGO’s GST Solutions have predefined forms and process to file GST returns in 100% Compliance with the GST laws of India, making it SIMPLE for your company, from billing to filing.

CHALLENGE 3: —————–

Right now companies have to file three returns a month, every month, with multiple complicated entries that have to be matched with every buyer and seller you did business with. This pushes up the cost & effort of compliance in the company.

SOLUTION: 

LOGO’s GST Solutions reduce cost and effort of compliance- When you enter your invoices within the LOGO ERP or DNMS, the computation of taxes and returns is fully automated. That means less dependence on people,  lower manual effort, & lower costs of compliance for the company. Automation also helps in eliminating the indirect costs due to ‘human data entry or computation errors.

CHALLENGE 4: —————–

GST will make supply chains more efficient, but the drawback in the current implementation is that it makes supply chains vulnerable to upstream compliance-related disruption. Your companies’ suppliers and partners also need to be GST Ready.

SOLUTION: 

LOGO’s GST Solutions automate your Extended Enterprise. DNMS manages the daily operations of field sales teams and distributors with 100% GST compliance capability across the multiple tiers of distribution network.
