The future of cloud is Hybrid

Advancements and progress in the cloud computing industry move at a pace that can hardly be predicted or kept at par with. Cloud infrastructure – public, hosted private and on-premises is increasingly less siloed, allowing workloads to be more portable and data streams more mobile.

2020 will be witnessing several dominating trends that will shape the future of hybrid cloud. Fast paced cloud industry are developing and will characterise the new trend market.

 

T.It has emerged as the preferred implementation model that will drive the progress of the cloud industry.

Edge computing gains greater relevance- computations are performed as close as possible to the sources and sinks of data and content, Combination capabilities of hybrid cloud and edge computing brings a great value proposition for organizations, wherein hybrid cloud ecosystem can be used to aggregate most relevant data and back-end functions, while edge can support processing and real-time analytics.
  5. Containers will be the core of an effective  hybrid cloud – It provides consistency regardless a workload is deployed on – premise or on cloud.Containers help organisations to maximise business value by simplifying deployment and management processes.
  6. Kubernetes will become more consumable with proliferation of open tools – Till last year organisations turned to open source tools to modernise their infrastructure but in 2020, they will be adopting the hybrid multicloud.To stay at par with cut throat competition,companies will resort to tools that can rapidly deploy applications such as containers and Kubernetes.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT E- INVOICE IN GST.

Stepping into the new decade with GST E-Invoice Generation System on Portal.

 

January 2020, embarks the implementation of electronic invoicing by the Indian taxation Council. The world is changing and so is the time and age to global digitalisation of business processes. This article aims to update you about the details of GST Governance and amendments in tax laws.

E-Invoice-What is it?

GST E- Invoice is the initiation of the digital bill for goods and services, generated at the Government GST portal. The concept of GST E-Invoice generation system has been taken into consideration for the reduction in GST evasion. All business (within the determined limit of turnover) will be provided with a system through which it will be mandatory for them to generate ‘e-Invoice’ for every sale on the Government GST portal. Every business that are applicable for such an invoice will be allotted a unique number whenever an e-invoice is generated. They can match the identification number with the invoices which are written in the sales return and paid taxes for verification. All relevant information will be transferred from this portal to the GST portal and E-Way bill portal in real-time. There will be no need  of manual data entry while filing ANX-1/GST returns as well as generation of part A of the E-Way bill, as the information is passed directly by the IRP to GST portal. In short, it is a digital bill generated using a standardised (recognised) format, where the electronic data can be shared with others.

FROM WHEN WILL E-INVOICE BE IMPLEMENTED?

The GST council chaired by Union FM Nirmala Sitharam approved the standard of E-invoice in its 37th meeting held on 20th September 2019. However no exact date of implementation has been provided yet. Electronic invoicing is proposed to be implemented from 1st January 2020 in a phased manner by GSTN. Similar to the new GST return filing system, the E-Invoicing system will first be available on a trial basis or voluntary compliance.

Team Expand is gearing up with the best in class ERP software to make your  business finances automated and simpler. Keeping up with the times makes you updated with the latest in technology

By you – For you…

BUSINESSES  AT AN ADVANTAGE:

Some crucial benefits of E-Invoice are enlisted below:

  1. E-Invoice determines to bridge a major gap in data reconciliation under GST to reduce mismatch and inaccuracy.
  2. Interoperability is made possible as invoices created by one software can be read by another. 
  3. E-Invoice enables real-time tracking of invoices prepared by the supplier along with the faster availability of input tax credit. It will also reduce input tax credit verification issues. 
  4. The relevant details of the invoices would be auto-populated in the various returns, specially for generating the part A of E-Way bills. 
  5. There will be minimal need of data reconciliations between the books and GST returns files. 
  6. The time-taking tedious tax filing process will become automated and availability of genuine input tax credit will be faster.
  7. The tax authorities will not be required for audits since the information they require is available at transaction level. 
  8. Decrease in the number of frauds as generating  fake GST invoices will become impossible.

Where are you placed?

APPLICABILITY OF E-INVOICE :

E-Invoicing under GST time period with business turnover conditions :

 

  1. Turnover 500 crore plus-voluntary and trial basis start from 1.1.2020.
  2. Turnover 100 crore plus-voluntary and trial basis start from 1.2.2020.

Note: GST E-invoicing is mandatory from 1st april 2020 for the above businesses. Those with below 100 crore turnover voluntary and trial basis start from 1.4.2020.

It will be mandatory for the businesses to generate the entire GST E-Invoice including all the value of sales. Expand ERP will be fully equipped with the software to make accounting and finances more methodical and organised for your business.

How to go about it?

THE PROCEDURE:

 

The process of generating the GST E-invoice will be similar as the E-Way bill which is generated on the www.ewaybill.nic.in or the GST payments are done on the GSTN portal. The generation of invoices will be done by a centralised Government quarter which will replace the E-Way bill that is being generated for the movements of goods. 

  1.  At first,businesses need to  generate an electronic invoice on every sale on their respective ERP’s. The standard invoice format if prefixed by authorities for every business so that proper details are extracted. 
  2. The E-Invoice  generated needs to be reported to the Invoice Registration portal (IRP) of GST. 
  3. On the portal, the invoice reference number (IRN) will be authenticated and the invoice will be signed digitally. 
  4. Then a QR code will be created. The code contains all the vital information related to the invoices which will be redirected to the taxpayer who filed the invoices.

The IRP will send a copy of the signed invoices to the provided email id of the recipient of supply who is involved in the whole process.

What do  you need?

Documents required to be provided by the taxpayer while reporting the E-Invoices to IRP:

  1. Supplier side invoices
  2. Suppliers credit notes
  3. Recipients debit notes
  4. Other documents (according to the business)

SALIENT FEATURES OF E-INVOICE IN GST SYSTEM:

  1. Every taxpayer will be allotted a unique IRN.The unique IRN will be based on the computation of hash of GSTIN of generator of document (invoice or credit note etc.) year and document number like invoice number. This hash will always be the same irrespective of the registrar who processes it. This hash will be the IRN.
  2. Once the invoice data is uploaded on the IRP which will also generate the hash in order to verify it and then it will be digitally signed  with the private key of the IRP. 
  3. IRP will also generate a QR code containing the unique IRN along with some important features of invoice and digital signature so that it can be verified on the central portal as well as by an offline app. This will be useful for tax officers checking the invoice on the go where the internet will not be available.  
  4. It will be easy for anyone to download the invoice from the offline app provided in the IRP and authenticate the QR code of the invoice offline and its basic details. However to see the whole invoice , one will have to connect to the portal and verify and see the details online. Only tax officers will be authorised to download the entire details of any invoice.

STANDARDISATION OF INVOICE:-

A technical group constituted by the GST council secretarial has drafted standards for E-Invoice after having industry consultation.  The E-Invoice schema and template, as approved by the GST council, are available at www.gstn.org/e-invoice.

Ways to adopt E-invoice:

DIFFERENT MODES OF COMMUNICATING:

There are multiple modes made available so that taxpayers can use at his or her convenience. For example

  1. Web based
  2. API based
  3. SMS based
  4. Mobile app based
  5. Offline tool based
  6. GSP based

How to use?

SOFTWARES TO BE USED:

The GSTN, in partnership with the ICAI (institute of chartered accountants of india), has drafted an E-Invoice standard. This refers to PEPPOL(Pan European Public Procurement Online), which is based on the UBL (universal business language) standard. Certain features which are made mandatory under the GST law have also been marked as mandatory fields in the invoice draft. 

 

Countries that are already using E-Invoice in GST are South Korea, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Turkey, Italy, Denmark, Peru etc.

Some Pointers to remember:

  1. The maximum number of line items allowed per e-invoice is 100.
  2. It is not mandatory for a supplier to sign the e-invoice again.The IRP will digitally sign after validation.
  3. On the IRP,the data will be available only for 24 hours .
  4. An e-invoice cannot be cancelled partially,it has to be cancelled fully.
  5. All amendments to an e-invoice can be made only on the GST Portal.

ERP – THE BEST WAY TO REDEFINE THE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY!

KNOW HOW?

Way back in the olden days, business data and records were maintained in complex spreadsheets and files and voluminous folders. When businesses grew in scale, such antiquated systems also got obsolete. They were replaced by ERP systems which were more than just organising and scheduling modules for manufacturing enterprises. They combined the virtues of business planning and management, production scheduling, inventory control, customer relationship management and alignment of partners in the supply chain. The manufacturing sector is piled with competition and susceptible to an ever-changing market ecosystem. To remain at the top of the game, manufacturers need ERP systems that can be deployed and maintained off-site, are comprehensible, scalable, customizable, cost-effective and easy to use. Every industry has their own specific needs and processes. The ERP solution provider needs to understand the business well to define the scope of the software. Expand ERP has over 15 years of extensive R&D and market testing to make the solution robust and perfect, exactly for your specific business need.

According to an ERP Software Market Report published by Allied Market Research report, the global market is expected to garner $41.69 billion by 2020.

Still contemplating about adopting Cloud based ERP for your manufacturing industry?

Here’s why your manufacturing unit needs a modern ERP system:

From conception and design through to manufacturing and delivery, ERP is built to handle the complex needs of manufacturers that use engineering in the design and build of their products. ERP gives you complete visibility into your software processes to help integrate engineering activities, streamline operations, improve efficiencies, manage complexities and grow.

  1. Cost-effective:

    ERP software makes quality management easier. Quality of the product is assured with ERP, which reduces the number of finished goods that are discarded. You gain real-time business visibility with analytics and reporting. The predictive defect analysis made available with artificial intelligence provides deep, timely insights into all aspects of your business. This limits wastage, reduces cost and increases the profit margin for a manufacturer. As the old saying goes, money saved is money earned.
  2. Streamlines Processing:

    Manufacturing operations which otherwise seem complex and redundant, are automated by an ERP system and streamlined across departments. Users can navigate complex processes easily in less time. The result is improved efficiency and cost.
  3. Maintaining Accuracy in Inventory:

    An ERP solution can track your entire inventory in real-time, which makes every transaction and business activity extremely transparent. Shop floor advisors can cross check the quantity of each product. Having accurate inventory or stock list provides products and services that deliver immediate value to clients.
  4. Agility saves Time:

    ERP offers to extend productivity, security and access to information to mobile workers plus partners and customers, working anywhere, anytime on any device. Decision makers compare the system generated reports on regular intervals to analyze the varied market demands and capitalize on customers purchase trends.
  5. Profound Analytics:

    All the departments of a manufacturing business are unified and synchronized in a modern ERP solution. Consolidated reports can be generated using the same system resulting in accuracy in analysis and precise forecasting. For example, an Accountant who can readily access charts and reports can make decisions based on real values and figures.
  6. Optimize Supply chain:

    Fast growing businesses need strategies to boost productivity, improve quality and reduce costs. Supply chain management (SCM) in an ERP system smoothens the planning and execution of activities in the business. This monitors the supply of raw materials to meet the demands of the finished goods.

To Conclude:

How to benefit from Cloud ERP?

“Water has memory”….and Cloud stores the memory.

Cloud! …sounds quirky?

Cloud is the data warehouse for multiple users over the internet, without directly managing or physically maintaining external servers. In technical terms, Cloud Computing is a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data in place of a local server. The most commonly used cloud providers are Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

Most ambitious companies rely on ERP systems to help integrate and organize data that is spread across each of its independent departments. Traditional ERP solutions are often housed within a company’s own server infrastructure and require updating and servicing to stay updated. Cloud ERP, as the name suggests, is based in the cloud, like SaaS (Software as a Service.) Unlike traditional ERP software, Cloud-based ERP relies on the cloud rather than proprietary server infrastructure to help companies share information across departments. Cloud ERP software integrates some or all of the essential functions to run a business, e.g. accounting, inventory and order management, human resources, customer relationship management (CRM), etc. – into one complete ERP system.

Transiting from On-Premise to the Cloud

The term “moving to cloud” also refers to an organization moving from a traditional CAPEX model (own the dedicated hardware and depreciate it over a period of time) to the OPEX model (use a shared cloud infrastructure and pay as one uses it).

Patrons claim that cloud computing allows companies to avoid upfront infrastructure costs, and focus on projects that differentiate their businesses instead of on infrastructure.

The benefits of Cloud ERP are many. Essentially, an on-premise ERP system lives on company’s own servers and is customized according to its needs. It’s a system built for a single client and is typically maintained by the ERP vendor or partners with updates delivered maybe once or twice a year. On the contrary, public cloud ERP systems are standardized to meet the needs of a multitude of clients, though all the data are separated and secure, the application and intelligence layers are shared.

 5 BENEFITS of Cloud ERP :

  1. Cloud ERP is typically more affordable. It eliminates the expense of buying computer hardware and software. In cloud, there is no need to buy hardware.
  2. Updates are sent to everyone at once, which delivers a competitive advantage. You’re not left waiting around for a vendor to update your custom ERP system. This ensures vast amount of computing resources can be provisioned instantaneously.
  3. Thirdly, Scalability is a huge advantage as it is easy to scale up your cloud capacity as per the need of the hour.
  4. Accessibility of data anywhere with internet accessibility makes business process smarter and quicker.
  5. Security– with Cloud your data is stored in a centralized secure location which is encrypted in highly secured systems. Shifting to the cloud also often requires changes to a company’s internal workings — changes that often turn out to be enormously beneficial.

Looking for a secure and reliable Cloud-based ERP Solution?

Your search ends here.

With Expand ERP cloud-based solution, you are free to manage your business anywhere or on any device that is connected to the web. All cloud-based servers are protected with software and hardware firewalls, in addition to 2048 –bit SSL certificates for secure HTTPS transports. Seventy four percent of IT executives and CIO’s have cited cloud computing security as the top challenge preventing their adoption of the cloud services model. But with us your data security is our highest concern. Safety comes First. With our Sure Shield promise, we help you overcome such security threats with our 100% assurance of data security.


We at Expand ERP train your team and provide a robust ready FAQ for our software and 24×7 support.

Still not made the right move to Cloud?

Given the fundamental benefits of cloud computing to businesses, it is no wonder that it is revolutionizing the industry, and is expected to grow further in the coming years. Hence, 93% organizations now use cloud-based IT services, 90% businesses plan to increase their cloud spending. Cloud computing allows businesses to ensure efficient collaboration across business locations and departments and effective sharing of information across third parties and contractors.

Some commonly sought after queries before moving to
