NEW DELHI, Sep 07 : Telecom services provider Bharti Airtel has launched a solution, called GST Advantage, which has been specifically designed to enable small businesses and start-ups to file their GST returns.
Launched in partnership with ClearTax, Airtel GST Advantage has been offered free to all existing Airtel Business customers, who simply need to register on www.airtel.in/gst-advantage.
Airtel will be providing free data up to 18 GB spread over three months for small businesses and start-ups which have to file Goods and Services Tax (GST) returns through this platform, the company said on Thursday.
Customers will be allowed to use 2GB data per month per connection on a maximum of three devices.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had last week stated that 38.38 lakh businesses had filed their returns and paid Rs. 92,283 crore in taxes for the month of July – the first month of implementation of independent India’s biggest tax reform, the GST.
Since then the number of returns filed has gone up to 44 lakh and over Rs. 2,500 crore more has come in as taxes, PTI reported quoting a top official.
