Through this implementation, RBL Bank has gone live with an end-to-end solution for GST management, that will bring out the indirect taxation logic by orchestrating transactions and related complex taxation changes associated with the GST Act, both in the debit tax and credit tax spaces. The announcement comes at a crucial juncture where the country has recently rolled the GST Act.

SunTec’s Xelerate® is uniquely designed to be an over-the-top (OTT) solution which can easily be integrated into the bank’s existing IT Landscape. This ‘out-of-the-box’ solution with preconfigured rules can be nimbly configured irrespective of inter and intra state combinations.

The SOA architecture enables easy integration with GSPs and the entire technology ecosystem of the bank thereby provisioning for faster market readiness for the GST rollout.

With regulations like GST already in force, it is clear that banking and financial institutions must adapt to lean processes and technological solutions to improve service accuracy. We look forward to continue delivering innovative solutions that will immensely benefit clients and help RBL Bank retain customer trust in the long run.”

“We are delighted to partner with SunTec and proud to announce that we are one of the first few banks in India to have successfully gone live on GST. Given the diverse business portfolios we handle, it was crucial for us to ensure that all taxation related data is computed and analysed with accuracy so as to ensure smooth business operations and keep issues of double taxation in check. With SunTec’s in-depth know-how on GST and the preparedness they showed through a solution like Xelerate, we could ensure regulatory compliance and are confident that we will be able to offer superior business services and adeptly manage greater volume of transactions. We are satisfied with the progress with GST compliance, and look forward to a fruitful long-term partnership with SunTec” said Naresh Karia, CFO, RBL Bank.

The GST ACT that was rolled out on 1st July 2017, is set to transform India’s tax system. It is the biggest ever tax reform ever since Independence which will replace layers of federal and state taxes to one single and unified tax. It is but obvious that all industries will get affected by this, banking and financial services would also be incrementally impacted as level of compliances will see dramatic augmentation under GST. Companies with PAN India presence will likely see manifold increase in compliances because of the varied nature of businesses. It is imperative to streamline operations and the need to initiate necessary action so that service offerings are not compromised and the financial institutions maintain the competitive edge.
