Avalara Becomes One of the First ASPs to Successfully File GSTR-2 in India
Harshad Shinde, Product Manager, GST India, Avalara stated, “We have successfully filed GSTR-2 recently and became one of the first ASPs to file GSTR-2 with the GSTN guidelines. I am confident Avalara TrustFile GST will be one of the first ASP solutions to file GSTR-3 for its customers.”
Filing of GSTR-2 is a complex task, requiring amalgamation and reconciliation of sales and purchase data, but Avalara TrustFile GST is an automation solution that has simplified this process through the use of cloud technology:
- Retrieving Data: GSTR-2 requires businesses to submit accurate sales and purchase data each month. Avalara TrustFile GST can either directly extract this sales & purchase data from an established ERP or accounting system, or give a business, a mechanism to upload a simple CSV file.
- ITC issues: In the GSTR-2, it’s important to enter the ITC claim amount for each invoice or C/D notes individually. Avalara makes this very easy through GSTR 2 input template in the CSV file.
- Reconciliation issues: GSTR-2 requires accurate reconciliation of invoices between businesses, including all debit/credit notes. Avalara TrustFile offers an auto reconciliation feature and matching of invoices in GSTR2A.
