What is the procedure for GST registration in India?

GST registration applies to all individuals and organizations providing goods or services in India. GST registration becomes mandatory when the total value of supply exceeds Rs 20 lakh in services and Rs 40 lakh in trade in goods. The Ministry of Finance (MOF) facilitated the GST registration process to facilitate the payment of taxes. If an organization is operating in a special category state, GST registration is applicable if the value is more than Rs. 10 lakhs. In this article, let's look at the eligibility to get GST registration. The article also includes the required documents as well as the GST registration process online.

What are the eligibility criteria for GST registration?

The following categories and eligibility for GST registration are mentioned:

·       Total turnover

Any service provider that services a total of greater than Rs 20 lakh in a year is required to get GST registration. In special category states, the limit is Rs. 10 lakhs. Any organization engaged in a special supply of goods required to obtain GST registration with a total turnover exceeding Rs. 40 lakhs.

·       Interstate business

An organization will register for GST if it supplies interstate goods, i.e. from one state to another regardless of their total turnover. Interstate service providers have an annual turnover of more than Rs. 20 lakhs then GST registration is required. (In special category states the limit is Rs 10 lakh).

·       E-commerce platform

Anyone supplying goods or services through an e-commerce platform will apply for GST registration. The person should register irrespective of turnover. Therefore, vendors on Flipkart, Amazon and other e-commerce platforms must register to start the activity.

·       Contingent taxable person

Any person who supplies goods, services seasonally or intermittently through any temporary stall or shop is required to apply for GST. The individual will apply regardless of the annual total turnover.
