Overview of GST Registration

With a view to abolish several other indirect taxes and to create a single taxation system, GST was introduced in India. Also, GST helps in the ease of collection and to enhance the efficiency of the process.

GST Registration is required for the businesses whose turnover gets over Rs. 40 lakhs* for sale of goods (Rs 20 lakhs for North Eastern – All hilly states for sale of goods). There has been no change in the threshold limits for service providers. Persons providing services need to register if their aggregate turnover exceeds Rs.20 lakh (for normal category states) and Rs.10 lakh (for special category states)

What are the Benefits of GST Registration?

The advantages of GST Registration are given bellow:-

  • Simplifies Taxation Services

    GST has combined a number of indirect taxes under one umbrella and integrated the Indian market.

  • Reduction In Costs Of Products & Services

    With the introduction of GST, the cascading effect of a series of VATs and taxes has been erased which has resulted in the reduction of cost of goods and services.

  • Helps In Avoiding Lengthy Taxation Services

    GST Registration helps the small businesses in avoiding the lengthy taxation services. As the service providers with a turnover of less than 20 lakhs and goods provider with a turnover of less than 40 lakhs are exempt from paying the GST.

  • Aimed At Reducing Corruption And Sales Without Receipts

    GST was introduced with an aim of reducing corruption and sales without receipts. Also, it helps in reducing the need for small companies to comply with various indirect taxes.

  • Uniformity In Taxation Process

    GST Registration brings uniformity in the taxation procedure and allows centralized registration. This helps the businesses to file the tax returns every quarter through an online process.

  • Minimizing Tax Evasion

    With the introduction of GST, tax evasion is minimized to a great extent.

  • Higher Threshold For Registration

    Earlier, in the VAT system, any business with a turnover of more than Rs 5 lakh was liable to pay VAT in India. In addition, service tax was exempted for service providers with a turnover of less than Rs 10 lakh. Under GST regime, on the other hand, this threshold has been increased to Rs 20 lakh, which exempts lot of small traders and service providers.

  • Composition Scheme For Small Businesses

    Under GST, small business under turnover of Rs 20 to 75 lakh can benefit as it gives an option to lower taxes by using the Composition scheme. This move has brought down the tax and compliance burden on many small businesses.

  • Simple And Easy Online Procedure

    The complete process of GST (from registration to filing returns) is done online, and it is super simple. This has been advantageous for start-ups mainly, as they do not have to run from pillar to pillars to get diverse registrations such as VAT, excise, & service tax.

  • Compliances Is Lesser In Number

    Previously, there was VAT & service tax, each of which had its own returns & compliances. Under GST, on the other hand, there is just one, unified return to be filed.

  • Regulations Of Unorganized Sector

    In the pre-GST era, it was often observed that certain industries in India like building construction and textile were largely unorganized and unregulated. Under GST, however, there are provisions for online compliances and payments, and for availing of input credit only when the supplier has accepted the amount. This has brought in accountability and regulation to these industries.
