Registration of any business entity under the GST Law implies obtaining a unique number from the concerned tax authorities for the purpose of collecting tax on behalf of the government and to avail Input Tax Credit for the taxes on his inward supplies. Without registration, a person can neither collect tax from his customers nor claim any input Tax Credit of tax paid by him

Important Update by GST Council

“Presently, anyone making inter-state taxable supplies, except inter-State job worker, is compulsorily required to register, irrespective of turnover.  It has now been decided to exempt those service providers whose annual aggregate turnover is less than Rs. 40 lacs (Rs. 20 lacs in special category states) from obtaining registration even if they are making inter-State taxable supplies of services. This measure is expected to significantly reduce the compliance cost of small service providers

What is GST Registration?

Any supplier of goods and service Provider of services who makes a taxable supply with an aggregate turnover of over Rs.40 lakhs in a financial year is required to obtain GST registration.
