The company has set a target of training 75,000 tax professionals, and more than 2 lakh businesses through new e-learning course in partnership with online education platform Udemy. “We expect to train 75,000 tax professionals, and more than 2 lakh businesses by our new e-learning course by the end of March 2020, before the launch of the new GST return filing system. This course comes at a cost of Rs 4,800. However the company is currently giving a discount of 25 per cent till December 31,” ClearTax founder and CEO Archit Gupta told PTI.

The new GST return filing system proposes that businesses can claim input credit only after their suppliers upload sales invoices. This course will provide them for a smooth transition to the new GST return filing system,” Gupta said.
