If you are looking for a good GST software, there are several options available. Selecting one out of the lot requires you to know the essential features that a good GST software must have. Of course, there are certain minimum threshold conditions that every software has to satisfy so that people choose it. Flexibility, user-friendliness, automatic and simplicity are some of the aspects you should look for in a good GST software. Based on that, here is a listing of the best GST software in India.
- Alankit GST Software
Alankit has introduced a cloud-based software called GST Muneemji for tax experts. It is a great comprehensive solution for all tax experts and tax payers in different sectors for their compliance requirements. It allows users to upload data in their preferred format and it automatically adjusts to the compliance requirements. It ensures reliability and smooth implementation of GST.
Tally is the best GST software India uses because it is capable of handling heavy data. Manufacturers and retailers use it widely because it provides a lot of advantages like inventory management, billing and payroll services and tax management. The main disadvantage of this software is that it was initially designed for accountants and therefore business persons find it difficult to use. Also, the software is too expensive if you wish to incorporate multiple users.
If you are looking forward to using very simple software, you should opt for ProfitBooks. They offer 3 pricing plans – Professional Plan, GST Company Plan, and SMB Plan. ProfitBooks integrates the payment gateway into its interface, provides easy inventory and warehouse management and even supports multiple users and multiple currencies. It is priced at INR 20,000 for single users and at INR 65,000 for multiple users.
- Zoho Books
Zoho Books is more accustomed to the international market and has recently been launched in the Indian market. The key service of Zoho is cloud-based accounting and this is preferred by startup businesses. It offers simple invoicing and report generation than all other software. The most important advantage of Zoho is that if the hard disk fails, your data is not lost. It is virus-free and doesn’t charge for updates. It restricts the number of users to 7 in case of multiple users.
ClearTax first started its journey as an IT return filing software and now also provides GST billing services. The app for the same works best after extracting data from ERP systems. This is the only software, which provides both the services of filling and billing in one system. It also incorporates online GST system learning and helps accountants to get registered under GST. The only sphere where it lacks popularity is that it is not equipped with any of the business tools and functions.
- Intuit QuickBooks
This the most suitable tool for invoicing and has the same historical trajectory as Zoho Books i.e. they also started first as an online accounting tool for the international audience. They are struggling hard to get popularity in the Indian market. This software also offers expense management and inventory management and works well for small businesses. The software lacks some GST features and doesn’t provide GST filing till now. It also doesn’t feature very important business functions.
Selecting a good software, which does all the important work for you, is very difficult but also important at the same time. Making a wrong decision can cost you a lot of time and money and lead you to nowhere. Once you choose a software, it is difficult to change to another software. The right one can save you a lot of effort and make your life a lot easier. This task is very troublesome and complicated. Therefore, choose the right GST software because they either make or break your business.
