Bengaluru: Taxmantra has launched an e-learning online training and certification course on GST with CAclubindia.com. With GST getting implemented this week, the pandemonium in the ecosystem is at its peak.
Businesses have been subjected to a truckload of information on GST, but there is still a considerable lack of understanding. Spurred by this need of the hour, this course has been set up to address queries, clarify doubts and explain the nuances of the new tax structure. There are more than 2.5 million professionals other than qualified professionals require right training on GST, for GST implementation to be successful. This course is designed to address all those users alike.
The course consists of two modules- (i) Basic; and (ii) Advanced. Each course will be accompanied by an examination and passing candidates will be eligible for certification. This course is designed to be compatible with a full-time professional/operational work schedule. Course content can be consumed at any time within 6 months of enrolment Lecture material, examples and case studies will be available in an online format.
Alok Patnia, Founder and CEO of Taxmantra, says, “The sole idea behind launching this e-learning Module is to ensure that every professional is given the platform to learn and be an Expert on GST.”
There are no fixed hours or timings to commence the classes, considering the requirement of a flexible viewing schedule. It is not practicable for users to allocate fixed hours in a day, avail leaves and to attend fixed classes physically. Hence, the course has been developed as an online training module.
What is the need for Online Training?
Understanding is the key to implementation. The roadblock in the understanding of GST primarily is the lack of genuine training and guidance facility. The Indirect Tax framework is rapidly changing and there is a lack of a holistic support in this entire gamut. Most of the online courses are designed academically, targeted towards the professionals like CA, CS, CWAs. There is no unified course aiming at practising professionals as well as non-practicing folks alike. People from a non-finance, non-taxation background are at a fix. They are often unable to understand the jargons and technicalities of the language of the law. Attending regular classes at fixed hours are also not possible always owing to professional and occupational commitments. Hence, helping them understand the cores of GST should be the primary focus. Besides, maximum genuine courses are offered by the professional institutes and are not accessible to general public (non-members or non-students).
All these combined have created a huge understanding gap in the ecosystem with respect to GST.
“After running the GST survey on our website, we realised that the industry and stakeholders were seeking more guidance and learning when it comes to GST. So, we decided to partner with Alok, to create an online course on GST which can be accessed from anywhere and anytime and benefit the community,” says Vivek Jain, Founder & CEO – CAclubindia.com.
The course covers the full gamut of GST and is intended to be consumed by the Chartered Accountants, tax professionals as well as the in-house accounting officer. This course is intended to address users from all fields, helping them to understand the various facets of complete gamut of GST.
