Genese Solution Pvt. Ltd, the pioneer Cloud Consulting Company in Nepal has now started providing Digital Marketing services to its clients via its sister concern Genese Business Solution Pvt. Ltd. So, Genese becomes the NRB/IRD compliant digital marketing company in Nepal.
Earlier Startups, businesses and Social media marketers were using international cards & PayPal of friends, relatives abroad for their digital services requirement. As such payments could not be done in local currency from Nepal in a convenient manner, people had no options but to follow the unofficial channels.
With such payment in foreign currencies, millions of dollars were hoarded from Nepal through unofficial routes. Such transactions also prevented the central bank for any benefits like TDS. The unauthorized transactions not only mean the loss of revenues to the country but also the lack of any scrutiny required by the authorities.
Considering the harm to the country, NRB curbed all sorts of unauthorized payments to those platforms like Facebook, Linkedin, Google from Feb 2020. That sparked immediate interruption of what those small businesses or startups had been doing for their businesses.
They also warned to take action if people or companies are found to make or receive payments from social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter through the unofficial channels.
As NRB published the circular without any preparations and opening formal channels, local businesses and digital marketers came down on the decision. They were found worried about losing their business and the uncertainty of when the official channels are available.
Genese claims to follow the legal route
The company claims to provide digital marketing services to local customers in social media and pay the cost incurred in digital marketing service to international social media promotion agencies through banking channels following all the legal requirements including NRB guidelines for service fee payment.
The legal process initiated by Genese by taking service fee payment approval from NRB is a great sigh of relief to all the Nepali businesses who can now promote their businesses on some of the biggest and best names like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Amazon Alexa via Genese. You can just contact Genese to start promoting your business in all those platforms by paying in local currency with the VAT bill.
One of the advantages of having such legal payments here in Nepal that those platforms will be encouraged to open their office here in Nepal. As they will get the details of the payments done from Nepal instead of abroad, they will start to recognize Nepal with the revenue potential here. If such multinationals come to Nepal, it will open up multifold benefits to the country, creating business and employment opportunities.
With this latest addition, they seemed to go big with the easy payments for those digital service solutions. It would be great if they integrate any local payment providers like eSewa, Khalti & more to pay remotely.
Apart from these, Genese also offers other services like Monitoring Tools, Email Services and Start-Up Incubation& Funding and is ever so committed to ultimately contribute to the betterment of IT and cloud ecosystem in Nepal, as its mission goes.
We suppose more companies will be able to provide the digital marketing solution in the coming days. So, the local businesses will now get their job done from official channels, while equally benefitting the country.
