HDFC Securities needed to upgrade IT systems and business processes for GST compliance
In July 2017, the Indian government introduced the Goods and Services Tax (GST), replacing the existing indirect taxation system. This sent companies across the country scrambling to realign existing business processes and IT systems with the new regulations. Apart from maintaining jurisdiction demarcations for all transactions, HDFC Securities Ltd. (HSL) needed a solution for storing GSTN numbers state-wise, and bifurcating GST components based on prescribed guidelines.
Keeping these requirements in mind, HSL partnered with TCS BaNCS to deploy a flexible platform that could help them reduce the time to market while fulfilling all compliance requirements.
