Airtel Business, the B2B arm of telecom major Bharti Airtel, has launched Airtel GST Advantage — a solution designed to enable small businesses and start-ups to file their GST returns “accurately, securely and seamlessly.”

Launched in partnership with ClearTax, Airtel GST Advantage is being offered free to all existing Airtel Business customers.

Three-pronged solution Airtel GST Advantage offers a three-pronged solution to customers — they can get free and secure access to the GST Network via Clear Tax, and all Airtel customers will have access to its newly-launched GST Advantage Helpdesk between 8 am and 8 pm on all weekdays.

Also, Airtel has published a GST Knowledge Bank, developed by tax experts, which aims to empower all Airtel Business customers with an in-depth information about GST.

Additionally, Airtel GST Advantage will also enable customers to upload their returns without worrying about bandwidth charges.

Ashok Ganapathy, Director & CEO, Airtel Business, said: “The new GST regime is a landmark reform for the Indian economy and with Airtel GST Advantage we would like to enable small businesses with free filing of returns and free and secure data access.”

Airtel is also the data hosting and connectivity partner for the Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN).

Archit Gupta, CEO, ClearTax, said: “We are excited to partner with Airtel. Since the launch of GST, we have been working hard to help businesses and tax professionals become GST-ready and make compliance easier.

“Together, we are sure to add many more milestones in our journey to get India GST-ready.”
