What is GST Registration?

GST or Goods and Service Tax has been considered as the biggest tax reform in the history of India. GST has merged Central and State taxes into one tax. GST has been implemented on the theme of One Nation One Tax and has tax slabs from minimum 0% to the Highest 28%.

Business entities whose turnover exceeds INR 40 Lacs (for Northeast and Hilly state 20 Lacs) are required to have a GST Registration. However, the limit for Service provider is still INR 20 Lacs. A certain category of Taxpayer u/s 24 of CGST Act 2017 needs to compulsorily register under GST irrespective of Turnover. It is in the best interest to determine upfront the registration requirements and eligibility criteria before opting to register for GST as it has ongoing compliances and further penalties for Non-compliance.

GST Registration is a seven-step process and further keeping track of the application upto approval. StartupSeven helps individuals and businesses in filing application for GST Registration.

Exporters and Importers of both goods and services are compulsorily required to register under GST. A registered taxable person exporting goods or services shall be eligible to claim a refund of IGST paid or make Exports under bond or letter of undertaking without payment of IGST.

Composition Scheme for Small Business

Under the Composition Scheme, a Business with a turnover of less than 1.5 Cr. can pay GST on concessional rates, and also have lesser compliances for fillings. However, a composition dealer can not collect tax and can not take credit of inward supplies.

One of the primary aims of a taxation system is to remove the cascading effect of tax i.e. No tax on tax already charged. Cascading effect of taxes is one of the major distortions of the Indian taxation regime. However, it has been completely removed in GST by seamless credit.
