GST Registration Online

GST Compliances

Overview GST Registration online

GST, an indirect tax introduced on July 1, 2017, applies to the sale of goods and services nationwide. By replacing previous indirect taxes like VAT, service tax, and Excise duty, GST has standardized the tax system, promoting the idea of a single tax system across the nation.

Essential Factors to Keep in Mind for a Smooth Online GST Application

Before proceeding with your online GST registration, take note of the following crucial points to ensure a hassle-free experience:

  • Any business entity that wants to comply with the GST Laws must obtain a unique number from the tax authorities to collect taxes for the government and claim Input Tax Credit for taxes paid on purchases.
  • Failure to register means a person cannot charge taxes to customers or offset taxes paid.
  • Eligible entities must submit a GST application within 30 days of becoming liable for registration.
  • Businesses not required to register can still choose to do so voluntarily.
  • Some states, such as Puducherry, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura, Manipur, Sikkim, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand, have specific registration requirements different from regular states.
  • Let’s begin by exploring the different types of GST registration available.

Goods and Services Tax (GST)?

There are 4 main types of Goods and Services Tax registration

Compulsory Registration: Some businesses must acquire mandatory registration under GST in certain situations, even if their turnover is below a certain threshold.

Optional Registration: Businesses that are not required to obtain mandatory registration under GST have the choice to voluntarily register.
Composition Scheme

Registration: Businesses with an aggregate turnover that falls between prescribed thresholds can opt for registration under the Composition Scheme. This scheme allows taxpayers to pay GST at a fixed rate based on turnover, offering simplified compliance compared to standard registration.
