GST Registration

Goods and Services Tax (GST) is meant to replace a number of central and state indirect taxes with a unified tax and is therefore expected to streamline and ease doing business. In India, any person, firm or organization undertaking a supply of taxable goods is required to register under GST if, he/ they have crossed the annual aggregate threshold limit of Rs. 40 Lakh (20 Lakh for NE states and the Hilly States.) or he/ they are having inter-state transaction. There are certain other conditions and exemptions for the applicability of the threshold limit: for instance an e-commerce aggregator or a person who supplies through e-commerce aggregator has to mandatorily register for GST. Heavy fines and penalties are imposed in case a business required to be registered is not registered for GST.

GST registration requires obtaining a GST Number, GSTIN, from the tax authorities. GSTIN is a unique 15-digit number, usually linked to the PAN and is used to monitor tax payments and compliance.
