AEPC & NSDL to help exporters with GST compliances
Jun '17
Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) and National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) have joined hands to provide end to end handholding on Goods and Services Tax (GST) compliances related to online filing of returns. Under the arrangement, AEPC will provide training and GSTN aligned platform for online filing of returns and other related GST services.

A help desk has also been established to answer the queries of exporters on the functionalities related to GST.

NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure Limited (NSDL e-Governance) has been closely working with the Government of India as well as various state governments for providing and implementing e- Governance solutions across India. NSDL is among the 34 GST Suvidha Provider (GSP) appointed by GSTN to facilitate tax payers to comply under GST.

NSDL would be providing the complete GSTN compliance right from providing of interface to upload/download APIs in the format prescribed by GSTN to conversion of data to the required formats as desired by GSTN through their GSP as well as Application Serviced Provider (ASP) for facilitating GST compliance. The services will be provided to AEPC members at concessional rate, under this arrangement.

"GST is a major tax reform in indirect taxes which is due for implementation from July 1, 2017. After organising GST orientation programmes at nine apparel clusters for exporters, AEPC have entered into a partnership with NSDL, which is a GSTN approved GST Suvidha Provider (GSP), to enable a smooth transition into the new tax regime. I would like to thank NSDL for offering such solution based approach for apparel exporters. The help desk which has been set up as a part of this initiative will derive from the expertise of NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure for facilitating GST compliance," said Ashok G Rajani, chairman, AEPC.

For technical queries related to GST specially online registration, filing of returns, claiming of refunds, validation of funds and other GST compliances, AEPC has set up a help desk at various regions across India through its regional offices which will be providing support to the exporters in regional languages also. AEPC has also come out with a FAQ booklet for apparel exporters. (KD)
