'SISL trying to minimize client efforts in filing GST returns'

Arjun Mittal, Director & Co-Founder, SISL Group 

GSPs have the responsibility of acting as a catalyst for filing GST. We will be providing pass through APIs for existing accounting softwares, ERPs and companies with a legacy ERP in place. We aim to provide our clients an end-to-end solution as we feel our responsibility goes beyond just the basic.

 SISL is coming up with a GST application which is mobile compliant as well. We are trying to build in functionalities and features to minimise efforts for our clients to file their GST returns.

The integration with the GSTN Server is going smooth generally. We are constantly updated about the release, and the setup of the open source portals & google groups has come a long way for GSPs. In a country like India where the scale of this reform is not even comparable to any of its counterparts, the major challenge will be to get the masses accustomed to technology. And SISL is putting in efforts in this regard for GST awareness and compliance.

We have trained around 50 people within our organisation who have thorough knowledge about GST and who are travelling across different cities across India to conduct training sessions and seminars. We have also tied up with various institutes to provide GST trainings for budding GST experts. Apart from this, we are negotiating with several ASPs and are training them as well. Through these initiatives we aim to create a vast network of professionals and students who will be GST-ready come July 1.

We are focusing on ERPs, accounting software’s, taxation software and firms looking to migrate from their legacy ERPs for GST compliance. We feel that most of the taxpayers are dependent on them, and by making them GST ready, we are choosing a smarter way.
