GST Registration

What is GST Registration?

Goods and Services Tax is an indirect tax used in India on the supply of goods and services. It is a comprehensive, multistage, destination-based tax: comprehensive because it has subsumed almost all the indirect taxes except a few state taxes. Multi-staged as it is, the GST is imposed at every step in the production process, but is meant to be refunded to all parties in the various stages of production other than the final consumer and as a destination-based tax, it is collected from point of consumption and not point of origin like previous taxes.

Turnover Threshold: The registration under GST is mandatory for the business entities based on the criteria of turnover or activities. The business dealing in goods and those providing service have to mandatorily apply for GST Registration if their aggregate turnover for a financial year exceeds Rs.40 Lakhs and Rs.20 Lakhs respectively. However, for business making supplies and providing services in the North Eastern States, the same is Rs. 20 lakhs and Rs. 10 lakhs respectively. To avail its benefits, many businesses also obtain voluntary registration under GST.

Benefits of GST:  

1. Online Procedure under GST: The entire process under GST regime starting from registration to return filling is online. This would be quite advantageous for startup companies who do not have to opt for registration under various indirect tax regimes.

2. Composition scheme for small businesses: Composition Scheme is a simple and easy scheme under GST for taxpayers. Small taxpayers can get rid of tedious GST formalities and pay GST at a fixed rate of turnover. This scheme can be opted by any taxpayer whose turnover is less than Rs. 50 Lakhs.

3. Easy compliances: After obtaining registration, enterprise is liable to fulfil compliance in the form of return filing in a periodical manner. These compliance requirements are simplified under the GST regime. Further, enterprises having annual turnover less than Rs 1.5 are also eligible to opt for filing either monthly return or quarterly return.

4. Benefits of Input Tax Credit: Input credit means at the time of paying tax on output, you can reduce the tax you have already paid on inputs. Business entities can also avail credit of Gst paid on inputs.
