ASP is an Application Service Provider.
ASP (Application Service Provider) helps Taxpayers prepare and file GST returns onto GST Network, through its integration with Govt. authorized GST Suvidha Provider (GSP).
ASP provides an application to taxpayers to facilitate GST return preparation, return data validation, filing and other value added services such as extraction and integration services with ERP systems, tax determination, audit & advisory etc.
Communication to GSTN can be done in 2 ways:
- By directly logging in to the GST portal and keying in the data
- By going via a GSP that is authorized to connect with GSTN
The ASP synthesizes and encrypts the data making it ready for communication to GSTN using the published APIs via GSP.
- GSTR1: Details of Outward Supplies
- GSTR 2: Details of Inward Supplies
- GSTR 3: Monthly Return
- GSTR 3B: Monthly Summary Return
Vayana ASP is separately licensed. Please contact us to learn more
GSP stands for GST Suvidha Provider. It is the first layer which has direct, secure and integrated access to the GST Network (GSTN). GSPs are government authorised.
ASP stands for Application Service Provider. ASPs provide a GST application for corporate users to manage their compliance workflow.
Yes. GSTN has a G2B web portal. However, larger enterprises having a few thousand invoices monthly can find web portal use cumbersome.
Corporates cannot upload files or data in any other format directly to GSP. It is advisable that corporates select a GSP and an ASP. The GSP is only a pass-through gateway which mirrors the GSTN APIs through its interface and expects API calls as per the format published by GSTN.
Vayana GSP is deployed on the cloud i.e. on Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) data centres located in Mumbai. Our GSP application deployed at AWS is further integrated to GSTN data centres which are located at Delhi and Bangalore, through MPLS network.
GSTN has implemented a security framework which uses strong security algorithms and practices used industry-wide. Vayana GSP cannot read and store the taxpayer data.
All API endpoints are accessible over HTTPS. This ensures transmission security.
- It enforces that all communications post the OTP request be encrypted and sent over the wire. The encrypted data can be decrypted only by GSTN
- It provides responses which are encrypted and can be decrypted only by keys that you receive during authentication.
Vayana GSP has built multiple levels of redundancies to ensure it has the required capacity to handle very large data traffic, even during peak periods:
- Vayana GSP is deployed with multiple availability zones of AWS, with a load balancing server, which distributes the data traffic between the multiple GSP servers
- There is continuous monitoring of data traffic and automated scaling up of the server farm on AWS
- There is a continuous replication of log data between the multiple AWS data centres hosting Vayana GSP
- Vayana GSP has two telecom ISPs providing the MPLS connectivity between its AWS data centre and GSTN’s data centres in Delhi and Bangalore
- GSTN itself has redundancy built-in through two massive data centres They have real-time synchronisation of data through a very fat network pipe.
Vayana GSP is pre-integrated with SAP ASP. This ensures that the ASP’s data transmission to GSTN on behalf of multiple customers is done using the same integration with Vayana GSP. Accordingly, the corporate does not see any integration with Vayana GSP.
