What is GST

As part of the registration process under the GST Law, every business entity must obtain a unique tax authority number that allows it to collect tax on behalf of the Government and claim Input Tax Credits on the taxes it pays on its inward supplies. According to Section 22 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017, Those who have an aggregate turnover for the sale of goods of more than Rs 40 Lacs per year (Rs 40 Lacs with effect from 01/04/2019) must register under the Act. For North-Eastern states, the threshold is Rs 20 Lacs. For services, there is a limit of 20 lacs for States in the normal category and 10 lacs for states in the special category.

Additionally, taxpayers with less than Rs.1.5 crore turnover can choose a composition scheme to avoid lengthy GST formalities and pay GST at a fixed rate.

What are the benefits when you register for GST?

No more cascading taxes

Indirect taxes have been grouped into two major categories under GST: central taxes and state taxes. This system eliminates the hassle of "tax on tax." This will result in more direct savings for small businesses. In addition to tax savings, you can also get low-interest loans to explore new opportunities if you own a start-up.

Businesses are now easier to start.

One of the major advantages of GST registration for SMEs is that new businesses will no longer have to adhere to multiple taxes in different states when doing business across state borders. As a result of the GST, a centralized registration process has been enabled, which will ease the process of starting a new business and eliminate the high costs associated with different tax regulations in different states.

Claim ITC

As a business covered under the GST Act, you are eligible to receive input credits. You are eligible for input credit if you are a manufacturer, supplier, agent, e-commerce operator, aggregator, or any of the above registered under GST.

Unrestricted interstate business

Logistics companies in India used to maintain several warehouses throughout states to avoid the current CST and state entries taxes. Previously, warehouse operations were restricted below capacity, leading to higher operating costs. Under GST, however, these restrictions have been eliminated.

What is the input tax credit?

By taking advantage of input tax credits, you can reduce the tax you have already paid on inputs and pay the remainder when filing your tax return.

In addition to paying taxes when you buy products from registered sellers, you also must collect taxes when you sell the products. When you use input credit, you can subtract the tax paid when you purchase the product from the tax on sales (output tax) and pay the tax balance, i.e., taxes on sale minus taxes on the purchase.

What is the GTIN Number?

Registration under GST is based on the Permanent Account Number (PAN) and is state-specific. A GST Identification Number (GSTIN) is a 15-digit number assigned to each new GST registered entity. A certificate of registration, including the GSTIN, is issued to the applicant upon registration.

First Two Digits

What are the types of GST registration?

Normal taxpayers

The majority of businesses in India fall under this category. A business whose turnover exceeds Rs 40 lakh must register as a normal taxable person in a financial year. In contrast, there is a limit of Rs 20 lakh for businesses in North-eastern states like J&K, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand.

Casual taxable individual

In this category, businesses that operate occasionally or seasonally need to register under GST. Business owners must deposit an amount equal to their GST liability for occasional operations. Registration lasts for 3 months. Businesses can, however, apply for renewal and extensions.

Non-resident taxable individual

These individuals outside of India occasionally supply goods or services to Indian residents, either as agents, employees or in other capacities. Business owners must deposit an amount equal to their anticipated GST liability. A normal tenure is three months. An individual may, however, extend or renew registration as needed.

Composition registration

For composition scheme registration, a business must have a turnover of up to Rs 1.5 crore. In this scheme, businesses pay a fixed GST amount regardless of actual turnover.

Here Are Some Frequently Asked Questions

ACCORDING TO LAW, a GST return is a document containing information about income that must be filed with the tax authorities. A taxpayer must submit two GST returns every month and one such return annually under GST law. It is mandatory to file all tax returns online. You will not be able to revise your tax return. Unreported invoices for the previous tax period must be included in the current month.
Registrants must file GST returns with details about purchases, sales, output, GST (on sales), and input tax credit (GST paid).

GST taxpayers are assigned a 15-digit unique identification number. An individual with a GST number can log on to the GST portal to verify their GSTIN number.

Exports are not subject to GST. Since GST is a consumption-based tax, exports are not taxed as they are not consumed in India.

Without GST registration, a person cannot collect GST from his customers nor claim an input tax credit for the GST he has paid.

For an individual who has branches in different states, one of them is in any of the States( Jammu & Kashmir/North Eastern Region), the threshold for GST registration would be reduced to Rs 20 Lacs.

PAN-based legal entities would have one GSTIN per State. Therefore, a business entity with multiple locations will have to take separate State registration for each location.
However, in a State, an entity can declare one place as its principal place of business and other branches as subsidiary places as an additional place of business.
A business entity in a state that has separate business verticals (as defined in section 2 (18) of the CGST Act, 2017) may obtain separate registrations for each of them.

A threshold of Rs. 40 Lakh/ 20 Lakh applies to the sale of goods/providing services in respect of the relevant financial year (in the case of the north-eastern states, a threshold is Rs20 Lakh/10 Lakh). Also, In the following cases, registration is made compulsory, irrespective of the aggregate turnover:
  • For a supplier who makes inter-state supplies
  • Casual taxable person/ Input Service Distributor (ISD)
  • Non-resident taxable person
  • E-commerce operators
  • Persons discharging liabilities under reverse charge mechanism
  • TDS/TCS deductor
  • Online data access or retrieval service provider
In addition to the above, there are other specific criteria when registration is mandatory. Apart from compulsory registration, one can also apply for GST registration voluntarily.

  • Agriculturalist: one who engages in agriculture
  • A person who exclusively supplies goods/services that are not subject to tax or wholly exempt from tax
  • Courts or tribunals established under the law may provide services
  • Employee services
  • Service, including cremation, burial, or transport of a deceased
  • Sales under Schedule 5 (ii)(b) and sales of buildings
  • A claim that is actionable, but not a lottery, betting, or gambling claim

Composition schemes are suitable for small taxpayers who wish to have fewer compliance and lower taxes under GST. A trader whose aggregate turnover is less than Rs 1.5 crore can apply for Composition schemes. The current limit is Rs.75 lakh for states in the North-east and Himachal Pradesh. Additionally, the composition scheme has been extended to service providers with an aggregate turnover of up to Rs.50 lakh.

To calculate turnover, the aggregate should be considered. An aggregate turnover is the sum of all taxable supplies excluding inward supplies subject to reverse charge, including exempt supplies, exports, and interstate supplies of the same PAN. When calculating aggregate turnover, CGST, SGST, UTGST, IGST, and cess should be excluded.
