Overview

Good & Service Tax (GST) Rules & GST Compliance Solution Requirements for BFSI are unique in nature and it cannot be completely fulfilled by General GST Compliance Software used by Tax Practitioners and Tax Consultants.

BFSI’s income emanates from Service Charges for which Banks have to later create B2B, B2C Invoices. Similarly, the BFSI have been allowed 50% ITC for the tax paid which is very difficult to decide since most of the banks are failing to reconcile their Purchase Registers from multiple branch locations with a single GSTR2A downloaded from GSTN. There are many more important aspects of GST Compliance Regulations / Rules applicable to BFSI Sector which may lead to subsequent GST Audit Non-compliances, penalties, Loss of ITC to Bank etc.

GST Compliance is a statutory requirements and Banks have to meticulously follow the each and every rule applicable to BFSI to avoid any penal actions. GST Compliance is a Vast Scope, needs continuous updating, and cannot be part of CBS Systems used by Banks. At the same time, GST Compliance Software needs to be seamlessly integrated with Bank’s CBS System to push and pull the transactions data in income and expenditure.
