Make your transition to GST less painful
Opt for Prologic First’s Consulting Service Package.
From 01 July 2017, you are expected to apply GST on sales and report the same, through approved GST Suvidha Providers (GSP). Also, you can claim credit for GST paid to suppliers, provided your claim tallies with their GST filing. To further complicate matters, you need to deposit GST on some advances received and can claim credit for the amount deposited.
If you are covered by a valid License Renewal & Maintenance Agreement (AMC for short), you have already received (or will do so in the next few days), software changes we have made in our software, to record GST at each sale, purchase and advance receipt transaction. As per our AMC terms, this upgrade is provided to you free. You may use the accompanying description to understand the changes and the installation instructions to apply the upgrade.
Please note that implementing the upgrade is not enough.
1. You will need to sign up with a GSP (or their approved ASP) to upload data for GST Reporting and reconciliation.
2. You may want an interface with the GSP (or ASP) to upload data electronically, in a timely and accurate manner.
Some of you may find all this quite overwhelming. To ease the process of transition to GST, we are offering our licensed users who are covered under AMC an optional GST Consulting Package.
