GST is the product of the biggest tax reform in India which has tremendously improved ease of doing business and increasing the taxpayer base in India by including millions of small businesses. Tax complexities would be reduced due to the abolishing and subsuming of multiple taxes into a single, simple system.
The new GST regime mandates that all entities involved in buying or selling goods or providing services or both are required to register and obtain GSTIN. Registration is mandatory once the entity crosses a minimum threshold turnover or when an individual starts a new business that is expected to cross the prescribed turnover.
Businesses are required to register for GST if they fall into one of the following criteria.
The types of GST registration varies depending on the kind of business undertaken and the supply location of goods or services.
The following documents must be submitted by regular taxpayers applying for GST registration.
Address proof must be provided for all places of businesses mentioned in the GST registration application. The following documents are acceptable as address proof for GST registration.
